Tumble Down.

Extracts from this document...


Tumble Down Robyn woke up early one morning in winter, due to feeling chilled throughout. She slid out of bed and slipped on her dressing gown and approached the window. She opened the curtains and as far as the eye could see everything had disappeared under a blanket of snow. Robyn was surprised by the heavy downfall of snow because of the intense humidity they had been experienced just yesterday, so this weather was certainly unseasonable. The snow looked crisp and pure. As she looked through the austere nakedness of the trees far into the distance the buildings and forest were clearly defined against the ultramarine sky. It was almost if they were awash in the refracted moonlight. The outskirts of her garden gave way onto the forest and the ghostly silhouettes of the over-grown trees were luminous against the brilliant white snow. She closed the curtains and slid back into bed. She was soon swathed by a snug, warm comforting feeling. Robyn awoke a couple of hours later. She was awakened by an annoying buzzing sound, which vibrated in her ear. It was her alarm clock. Her eyes narrowed and her stare became fixed. She then slammed her hand down on the snooze button and sat up. She opened her curtains. ...read more.


Robyn felt overwhelmed. Not only was the lecturer's voice a boring drone, he looked starry eyed, lifeless in fact. Almost like a computerised robot. During his lesson she went into a trance and as you looked into her eyes a fantasy world was unfolding. Before she knew it the lesson was over. Outside the snow had disappeared and the sun was shining prominently. The streets were buzzing with people. The sound of the ice cream man could be heard in the distance "Hi Robyn," said Michelle breathless, "I'm so sorry but just a minute ago saying that my granddad has been admitted to hospital, so you can't stop at mine tonight" "Its alright I hope your granddad gets better, see you later" "Ok bye" "Great," Robyn thought, " I can go home and send some time with my mom" Tumble Down forest stood dominantly just beyond the outskirts of Robyn's little village. The forest had literally sucked the life from the surrounding areas. Just before you enter all you can see is darkness and as soon as you step in the darkness engulfs you. It is as if it is trying to confine you. The overgrown trees leaned over and the tips of their branches touched, so sunlight was blocked out. The branches resembled fingers and it was like they were reaching down to grab her. Keep her in eternal darkness. ...read more.


The dog suddenly went crazy and bounded off. Mr Jones with his scrawny arms could not hold such a monstrous animal. " Ebony my lovely. Come here boy." His words were conspicuous. Distinguished. Rallied around in the hollowing silence. "Ebony!" He wondered over to a tangled mass of grass. Where Ebony was sitting. Innocently chewing away at a piece of meat. A putrid smell hit Mr Jones's nostrils. He bent down and slowly began to unravel the grass. Two partially distorted eyes stared straight at him, lifeless. Droplets of blood stained her face. Mr Jones cautiously peeled back the grass and was disgusted at the sight. There lay was a rotting corpse. The open wound in her stomach oozed pus. Insects were charging all over her flesh, like a lion that has been let out onto edible prey. Suddenly a hoard of cockroaches appeared from her gaping mouth. "BANG!!!!" One shot. One shot was all it took to literally blow his brains out. The steps of his attacker faded away into the distance. A deathly silence settled lie mist on the forest, leaving only a feeling of yet another death as the body slowly decayed. The attacker stopped and looked up at the sky and their eyes glowed. It was like their body was being taken over by evil spirits and they let a high-pitched laugh. The laughter sounded like that of a deranged psychopath. Startled birds retreated from their nests and flew away deep into the sapphire sky. ...read more.
