This Thing of Darkness (Recreating a line from Shakespeare as a story)

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐This Thing of Darkness I went out with a couple of my classmates to a party, approximately 6 miles away from my house. In the dead of the night, we separated and each one of us went into diverse direction. As I was going downhill, the weather seemed bizarrely transforming in different matters- white clouds turning into dark; forming a patter in a huge circle around me. The sky looked angry with dark and rolling clouds, while the wind lashed out upon the ground. With an ominous sound, the rain pelted the earth as if being poured from a bucket.

I went to my room, the temperature were normal, which made me pleased. Abruptly, a hushed wave of wind surfs through the room. Fearfully, I took a peek through the curtains; I felt the muscles of my heart tighten with incredible force, sending gushes of blood down my veins in a single movement. Paralyzed.
