Extracts from this document...


The Walk Home As the birth of the night started, the sky above me began to bloom pitch black. The clouds started to disperse, the stars appeared and mist rose from the ground. It frightened me not being able to see what's lurking in the distance. The tree around me looks eerie, with sharp leaves coming off their pointy branches. The trees made weary shadows on the ground. I looked at my watch to see the time; ten past ten. I was a good half an hour away from home; I was going to be late in. The thought of what my Dad would do, and say, gave me shivers down my body. Why did I have to stay just that extra five minutes round my mates? As I approached the longest, dreariest, most daunting road of my journey, the mist was getting thicker, so thick that I could not see anything that was more than an arm's reach away.

I heard him say "You ever think you can look at me like that again, I'll get rid of you!" I saw it on the side, shinned from the light, twinkled in my eye, the golden coloured ornament. I grabbed it. I smashed it against the back of his head. He fell to the ground, extremely fast. I placed the ornament back on the side. I then took my jacket and headed out the door. I remembered walking down my street and I remembered what he always said to me, "Don't be no later in than half ten or else you idiot!" ?? ?? ?? ?? Jac Goult Original Writing ...read more.
