The Lynching

Extracts from this document...


English Coursework: The Lynching It was the afternoon of a hot July day. The radiant rays of the sun beamed, across every inch of the yard and beyond the furthest tree. The scenery was almost motionless apart from the one bird coupe in the tree's chirping delightfully at one another and not forgetting a small little girl who was lying amongst the green healthy looking grass. Along side the girl was a big shabby looking dog, which resembled a rug on what the girl was resting on. Both of them seemed quiet lifeless as the heat appeared to be draining all the energy out of them. The sun had just drawn itself from behind a small cloud and had shone down directly on the little girl, who had pulled her father's hat down a little more over her eyes. Her thin face was now hardly visible except for her wild, curly, dirty blond hair which stuck out the sides of the hat like thatched straw. ...read more.


On the last step she noticed a shabby rug-like dog lying in front of the main window in the living room where of which Emily was heading for. Now that she was in closer range she began to hear more talking but the quarrelling had calmed and become more of an encouragement chant, this made her more inquisitive. Speeding up her pace she sneaked over the dog, moved a vase to the side and hopped onto the window sill. As the rain eased off slightly she cracked the window open, a brief gust of chilling wind and rain rushed in, direct to Emily's face, she closed the window out amazement.

The visibility of the yard had increased and she could now make out what the commotion was all over. ...read more.


More tears were rushing down her pale thin face. Remembering that her father was now on his way back to the house, she started to stroll back to her room. As soon as she had reached the passage Emily heard footsteps which were nearing rapidly. Frantically, she made a run for the stairs but she was too late. She paused. Her heart was racing as the door was being pushed open; a figure was now emerging in the doorway. Her heart had now almost skipped a beat. The door was fully open and her father was standing at the door soaked through from the rain, he was scowling at her. *** "I didn't see anything!" Emily cried out, her hands flapping hysterically as she startled out of her sleep. She rose up and took a look around. There was no sign of her father but only her shabby looking dog and an open field. She quickly took a couple deep breaths of fresh air to re-cooperate herself, realizing it wasn't actually occurring but was a bad memory which she had recalled. Emily lay back down, closed her eyes and wiped her face clear from the stained tears. ...read more.
