The Secret

Extracts from this document...


Kyriakos Perdikou 10H The Secret What a wonderful life it is. I'm stuck at school, I've got assignments up to my neck, exams in two weeks, a cash flow problem and to make matters worse I'm a undersized plump Irish lad living in central London in one of those high rise flats unlike the rest of the inhabitants of my school, who all live in large posh houses. There you have it, that's my life down to the dot. See here's the thing, I am Special! Unlike the rest of my family (Mum, Dad, Mabel, Joseph and great aunt Vanessa) I'm smart...ish. So my school in Dublin sent my whole family (minus Joseph, he's working for the better of Ireland) to London to get put into the Gifted Children's School. Before I went to the school I thought it would be kind of cool, but that was before I discovered that no one in England has a name like Seamus O'Flynn. So set the scene.

So when I got the chance, I went up to my room, and had second thoughts about the paper. I realised that if I took the paper I would probably get an A* which would be excellent. I also realised that if I used the paper I would only be cheating myself. I decided to take it back but thought about what would happen if the teachers knew that I had taken a GCSE paper. So I came to the final decision not to use it and to burn it, then I thought that some use might as well come out of this anyway and I did want "Return to the Matrix" on PC, it was the best game ever created. The next month when I received my results I was quite surprised. I got a B for English, more than I expected, and a mysterious �50.
