Ending for 'Samphire' by Patrick O'brien.

Extracts from this document...


'As she pushed him, she felt her arms weak like jelly.' Molly knew the force of pushing this boy was too much for her tired arms, but he still fell downward, quite surprised by Molly's actions. On most occasions the boy would have felt embarrassed by being pushed over by a girl, but instead the boy stood up, stared at her and took his trustworthy chameleon and left. Molly really wanted to catch this figure up, but something, maybe her own pride, had pulled her back. Instead she went and sat down beside the palm tree, recollecting her thoughts on how to survive in this unknown island. She knew that she was the only one that survived in the plane crash, so where did the boy come from? And why was he accompanied by a chameleon? And why did she push him, when all he did was stare at her? These questions whirled around Molly's head until she went to a deep sleep. ...read more.


The boy used his net which he made from leaves and trapped the flies inside. Then Lacey and the boy commenced their scrumptious lunch. Molly woke the next day feeling very weak. She had no idea where to get food or drink, and she had no sense of direction. She decided just to walk and try and remember where she went, so if she did get lost, she could find her way back. But after a few turns she already lost her tracking. She decided to walk onwards when out of sheer luck she found a swamp. The swamp stank to high heaven, she thought, but she was so incredibly thirsty that she was intending to drink the water. If the water was contaminated or not was a risk she made to make. After quenching her thirst Molly decided to have a swim. It was swelteringly hot and besides she needed some sort of wash. ...read more.


In a frantic attempt to save her, the boy dived in and covered his hand across her mouth, because the creature could sense if the human breathed underwater. But the boy could not take the girl upwards, because she was wriggling frantically, trying to kick her way out of the boy's grasp. The boy held on for dear life on her mouth, but she kept fighting frantically until suddenly she stopped. She rose above to the water as a motionless figure. The boy knew she was dead. At utter surprise of Molly's death and that the boy knew he had killed her, he shrieked in horror, tears rolling down his eyes against the floating water. What he forgot was the mystical swamp creature. He had motioned his mouth so the creature had grasped hold of him. The boy fought for escape, but he, like Molly, came to no avail. The creature, after one swirling motion of a hand, had knocked the boy out. The boy's vision went black. ...read more.
