Creative Ending to Handmaids Tale

Extracts from this document...


Creative Ending to Handmaid's Tale Jack Tomlinson Block F I entered the van contemplating about my fate, wondering if my daughter is safe and well. Then there is Luke, oh how I wonder if he is alive, if I'll see him in the afterlife, if he is dead. I cannot imagine what will become of me now that I have been stripped of my Handmaid status. Will I have freedom from this meaningless existence? Or is this the end of the line? All I can do is waiting and see what will become of me. I find myself sitting between 2 guardians with Nick right in front of me, staring thoroughly at me, as if there is something wrong with me. Maybe there is, maybe they have found something wrong with me, only time will tell. I consider asking him what I did, however I'm worried about what his answer may be, maybe they discovered my association with Mayday, and I will become the victim of the Salvaging, only time will tell. I cannot see the driver; I acquire the bitter taste of that terrible illusion - hope, maybe these men will take me to Luke, maybe, just maybe. ...read more.


All that is next to occurring is for the driver to turn right on the next road, and it'll all be over. We arrive at the turn, we start to turn right. However I hear a gun shot, and the car stops. I look out the window and I see a motionless body on the ground, the driver was killed, but why? I examine the environment and I see that Nick, nor the Guardians have remotely flinched. I gain the courage to ask Nick what is going on, he simply responds by stating "just wait a little longer" I am frustrated with that response and I seek to inquire more however I trust him enough to listen to his words, and thus I will wait a little longer. It appears that there was another man in the passenger seat, as the car starts again; he must have some connection to Mayday. That dead man was wearing a proper Guardian uniform, these men do as well, but then why didn't they help him? They must be a part of the plan. ...read more.


This is why I was always watching you, until I could find a means of extracting you from Gilead. Unfortunately I wasn't expecting for Serena to assign me with having sex with you, but if I didn't agree to it she would have suspected something. This was a chance I couldn't take." Why would someone go to all the effort of finding me? "Since the commander is Luke". I am speechless, I cannot tell whether I am stunned by happiness, or sadness. I steadily asked a question, how did he survive that day? "From what he told us, he said that he was able to grab a hold of one of the guns and kill the angels that were after you two. However he searched for you and he could never find you, thus he joined the rebellion and rose in the ranks until he was promoted to commander, and ordered me to search for you." This is amazing; I will finally be able to be with Luke. We arrive at an abandoned factory where I see Luke and some faces I don't recognize. I run outside and hug him so hard it begins to hurt. I whisper in his ear, I love you. ...read more.
