Unreachable Thorn.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Unreachable Thorn I still remember that day so well; it sticks in my mind like an unreachable thorn. Luke was so much stronger that me. I would have given up if it wasn't for him. I remember the rain, pouring from the sky, heavier that the burden in our arms and in our hearts. It was Luke's idea to teach him a lesson for what he did to Claire, but it was me who roughed him up, I was the one who made him fall. Luke said that no one would believe us. He said that everyone would think we killed him for his lunch money. We didn't kill him, he fell. ...read more.

Middle

Claire was shocked he was missing, thought it was fate, never suspected Luke and me. We weren't like that. I never thought I could have done it, but I did. I couldn't have done it alone though. Luke thought of everything, covering our tracks, alibis, everything. If anyone found out, I would have got caught for sure. We dumped the body where no one would find it, and to this day still hasn't. I dragged the bag to the edge of the ravine and pushed it over. As it tumbled down, the bag split, and as it came to a halt, Josh's arm slipped through the rip in the bag and lay motionless on his silent, unbreathing chest. ...read more.

Conclusion

When Claire left, I told him that if he ever upset my girl I'd kill him. I wasn't serious, but then he touched her. When she told me she was crying. I couldn't stand to see her like that; I couldn't stand to see her so upset. I only wanted to scare him a little, teach him a lesson. Luke told him to meet us near the oak tree on the top of Old Barney's Lookout. He came and we started pushing him around, telling him he'd pay for hurting Claire. Then I hit him, real hard. He lost his balance and toppled over the lookout onto a ledge. His submissive body lay still and silent. The story of Josh Baker ended that day, and it sticks in my mind like an unreachable thorn.

    then, I entered the school. It was 8:10am so I was on-time which was good, but most people were here already, I suspect they all came early because they were excited. I went down to where Mr Barracloughs room was and found James and Kane there talking.
