The Greek Holiday with a twist.

Extracts from this document...


The Greek Holiday with a twist. That fantastic day had arrived. I had waited long enough for this holiday, two years, five months, three weeks and three days to be exact. Stuffing all our suitcases, with the limited amount of clothes we were allowed to take, we hurried downstairs to live our dream. 'Come on, Harry'. Shouted mum, standing with her hand on the round, and brass doorknob, halfway walking out of the door. 'O.k., o.k, I'm coming' I said in an excited voice. Dad was continuously beeping at the car horn. This felt great; I was determined to have a great time. After a fractious journey, we arrived on the dock, and there she sat, silently sophisticated but just big enough to fit us all on board.

There was enough force that it knocked me over, I had lost consciousness and I was rolling endlessly. Mum came running up the steps. The water had flowed down to the lower deck and had started rising. My nightmares had come true, and this was ment to be a holiday. As I regained consciousness slowly everyone started to go quiet, mum stop calling for me, and dad stopped calling for mum. Only seagulls could be heard and the overlapping of waves. A boat's horn could be heard in the distance. They were coming for us. As my hand slipped off the support I was holding, my body lapsed into the water, and I reminded myself the boat was on its way. Everything was quiet, too quiet, then a seagull screeched, everything was lost... Kristina Clarke 9/7 ...read more.
