Witch hunt

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Caitlin Davies Witch hunt As Becky stumbled, she glanced back. She let out a desperate sob as the dogs bit at her ankles. As a hut came into view, the shouts became louder, fuelling her desperate actions. She pushed herself harder than she ever had before, she grabbed the door handle and yanked and twisted until her fingers bled. Sighing with relief as the door swung open, she threw herself into the room and slammed the door behind her. As Becky's eyes flew around the room, searching for something to barricade the door, a sudden bang sent her cowering. She looked up, the banging continued and each blow made her stomach recoil. Through the dusty windows, she could see the torches of fire, her predators were wielding. Becky covered her ears as the threats and shouts continued. The door flew open, allowing her predators to enter her safe-haven. As the mob closed in, Becky backed up against the wall and said a final prayer as she slowly slid down the wall, weeping for her salvation. As Becky opened her eyes, she sighed. That was the third nightmare she had experienced that week. Each dream had consisted of spells, hexes and potions. Becky giggled to herself and stood up, she stumbled across the room, through the door and out onto the landing. She started towards the bathroom but stopped as she reached Bethan's door. Bethan had been at university for the past six months and Becky missed her terribly. She slowly opened the door and peered inside, Bethan had always been unusual. Her taste in music was the complete opposite to Becky's but even Becky had to admit, Bethan was a slave to fashion. She made her way across the room, dodging the array of odd shoes that now inhabited the floor, once on the other side of the room; Becky opened the closet door and admired some of the better things Bethan had stowed away. ...read more.

She turned the tap off and when she turned round Casey stood in the doorway with a smile across her face, "make it snow." Becky began to laugh, "Do you know how stupid this is? How do you expect me to do it? Just point at the sky and say a stupid little riddle? This is beyond ridiculous!" Casey left her post and opened the back door, she turned round and looked Becky straight in the eye, "that is exactly what you'll do." She then pointed to the garden and walked out, Becky followed. Stopping in the middle of the garden, Becky looked up and said, "You want a little poem? Fine you'll get one, "EARTH AIR, ELEMENTS GO. FIRE WATER, BRING FORTH SNOW!" she turned to Casey, "I think I've proved my point." As she finished her sentence a snowflake landed on Becky's hand. She looked around in disbelief, as her eyes met Casey's, a tear rolled down her cheek. "I was right! You freak! You're just like Bethan! You wait until everyone finds out..." Becky wiped away her tears as she heard this, as she realised Casey wasn't who she seemed, Casey stared in disbelief as Becky raised her arm and extended her index finger until it pointed at Casey. Taking a deep breath, Becky closed her eyes and murmured "Bitter in her disbelief, take her away, Casey leave." Exhaling, she opened her eyes and Casey was gone. Wrapping her arms around herself, she entered the house, closing the door behind her. Shivering, Becky went to the living room and sat down. As she sat, the shock of the day's events hit her like a slap in the face. Becky curled up in a ball and cried until her eyes stung and her throat was raw. Becky raised her head as the shrill of the phone echoed around the empty house. She extended her hand and picked up on the fourth ring. ...read more.

Conclusion

Once in the woods, Becky shrugged off the coat and threw it. The barks came nearer, and Becky realised they had let the dogs go to bring her down, choking back tears she ran as fast as she could. As she stumbled, she glanced back. She let out a desperate sob as the dogs bit at her ankles. As a hut came into view, the shouts became louder, fuelling her desperate actions. She pushed herself harder than she ever had before, she grabbed the door handle and yanked and twisted until her fingers bled. Sighing with relief as the door swung open, she threw herself into the room and slammed the door behind her. As her eyes flew around the room, searching for something to barricade the door, a sudden bang sent her cowering. She looked up, the banging continued and each blow made her stomach recoil. Through the dusty windows, she could see the torches of fire, her predators were wielding. Becky covered her ears as the threats and shouts continued. She could only make out a few of the treats, people want to lynch me, she thought tears rolling down her cheeks. The door flew open, allowing her predators to enter her safe-haven. As the mob closed in, Becky backed up against the wall realising her time was through and she had to try she grabbed a piece of wood off of the floor and swung, not caring who she hit, she heard thuds as the wood made contact with her hunter's skulls. Tears blocked her vision, but she did see the man who lunged forward, plunging a knife into her chest. The shouts continued as she realised she had been stabbed. As Becky slid down the wall, pulling the knife from her chest, she saw Casey standing in the doorway, and with her last breath, Becky promised herself she would make it count, so as she hit the floor she whispered her last spell, "I will die, or so it will seem. So be afraid Casey, I'll be in your dreams." ...read more.
