The Traveller.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The Traveller stood in the centre of the deserted graveyard. A wall of fog slowly surrounded him as he placed daffodils on a grave. Every night he would do this. He would look on, wet tears forming in his lost grey eyes. The Listeners heard everything The Traveller said. They heard how he prayed and how he wept. They knew everything about him whereas he knew nothing about them. They treasured him. Always had, always would. The Traveller was not always like this. He was once happy, he had a family and he definitely was not alone. Everything was turn upside down on that dreadful night. It is surprising how much your vision of life can change in a few minutes. It is also surprising to know how much Robert Liegel's life transformed in just several seconds. Robert Liegel was obviously one of the unlucky ones. At least that was what he thought. Robert Liegel, like his nickname suggested, was a traveller. ...read more.

Middle

Robert dreamt of strange things. He saw his family but it was not the usual nightmare. There were no screams or flames but most importantly, he did not feel scared. His family circled him as wolves circle their prey. The smallest one spoke "Join us brother, we are so lonely without you. I miss you and you are not happy." His mother stepped forward "Robert my darling I know what you are going through. Believe it or not, we are always with you. Listening in on you like guardian angels." "Robert my boy. You never fulfilled your promise, we hear your words and we hear your pain. Your only hope is to go to them. They are your only family." His father plead. Robert left the dream feeling dizzy and weak. He could not stand. Before him stood an image of his family, they were the only ones who could give him strength. Something lifted him to his feet. ...read more.

Conclusion

He would get there. Eventually. Finally, late at night, he arrived. The house was located in the forest beneath the black and starry sky. The house looked abandoned, like it hadn't been touched in years just like Robert. After knocking several times he realised it was a waste. Nobody was here. All that for nothing. Remembering his mother's words he cried out "Tell them I kept my word. I did keep my promise dad I did!" Yet the Listeners didn't answer. Robert walked away, not looking back. He walked aimlessly for a while until he came across a cliff. He saw the deep blue sea violently striking the rocky cliff. He saw his family in the water and cried out to them "Please, help me!" Robert didn't wait for an answer. He dove into the sapphire sea. He felt the breeze in his face and calmly shouted his last words "I KEPT MY PROMISE!" Robert took his last breath and hit the surface. He was gone. There was no need for the Listeners anymore. They vanished. There is no need for me anymore. I have told my story. The End. ...read more.
