Mon A hoof smashed through an old rotten log in the roughage of the forest floor. The large black horse was galloping at a tremendous rate almost in a hurry to reach its final destination. The rider and horse were draped in all black and even though the rider was quite timid in physical appearance he had almost a great power in his aura. Even though the rider was travelling at such a great speed it was what seemed like hours before he reached his final destination. The rider dismounted with an air of caution and lifted his hood from around his face. He was a young man but with experiences beyond his years. In front of the rider was a large clearing in the dismal symmetrical forestry everywhere else. In the centre was a large willow with no leaves and a blackened bark. "So here it is, the oracle, the tree of mon". "AKIRA, AKIRA. Wake up lazy" nana was at the door of the room looking across at Akira as he slowly but eventually came round and woke up. "By the way Akira, the oracle seeks conference with you". He jolted looking both anxious and compelled "but why nana" but she only repeated "He seeks conference with you" and hastily left the room. Akira hurried to get dressed and hastily left the house. Round the back he found Pandora, his horse, which he quickly saddled and rode toward the forest and within minutes he was bowed before the willow in the great clearing. "Mighty
Don't drink milk on Somerville road
Don't drink milk on Somerville road "Welcome to Somerville", says Keith as he cruises past the sign in the fully loaded removal van. Keith just moved here from pilkington isle in the north of Carolina. "Mum", Keith mutters in a tired way, well they had been traveling for 16 hours non-stop. "Will their be any friends here for me to go with", his mother replies," well darling, I did see some people around here in the 4th grade, but sadly one of them was deceased by some chickens and then rats started eating him right infront of me, terrible sight, I nearly fainted". 2 days later when the reapers had moved in, Keith decided to go exploring, Keith Reaper was a weird young man with a short fuse and a exciting imagination. He decided to go to the post office to buy a carton of milk, Keith always drunken milk, ever since he was 2 years old. As he walked down the street people started staring at him in a strange way. Finally 2 boys came up to him, Keith looked up at the staggering height of the boys, they were black with their jogging bottoms down to their waist and pants up to their belly-buttons, a cigarette in one hand and a bottle of beer in the other. "Hey shorty", boomed one of the yuppies, Keith recognized they were yuppies from the flick knife one of the boys had sticking out of his pocket, and the way each one started on every person that walked by. "Where do you think
Random Night By Marty Reynolds 6th Hour English April 30th 2003 I've had some pretty odd nights where odd things happen. The following is of a March day in my eighth grade year that I can somewhat vividly remember. After school on a certain hot march day in my eighth grade year, I walked out of the building and just simply conversed with my friends like I do everyday before climbing on the giant yellow mass called bus number forty with my good friend Ryan. It was a somewhat quiet ride to his home on 88th terrace. We just played our regular bus game. You basically just look for clay turtle or lawn gnomes or concrete mushrooms...pretty much anything that you could find. I really can't remember who won or what I saw but it happened When we arrived at Ryan's homestead we where almost immediately greeted by his wonderful dogs Sadie and Chico. We proceeded into his home after taking a small skate session on his driveway to almost immediately hear the phone ring. On one end of the line was Ryan and on the other my other good friend Kenney. I just sat around and looked outside through Ryan's largest kitchen window while he was on the phone with Kenney. When Ryan put the phone back on the charger he just said, "Come on Marto lets go skate, Kenney's on his way". So we proceeded outside to skate and wait for Kenney. We walked over to his mothers wonderful
The cover of the jet black book was covered in thick dust, as if someone had left the book for years. As I wiped the dust of the book, the dust covered my hand and turned it black.
The book I walked through the gigantic two doors that led into the library. It was rather modern with computer on the left, and the book on the right. But right in the dark far end corner of the library were the book was kept, I walk towards there. As I walked further down the library, the smell of the air freshener was fading, the floor was much dirty and looked like it hasn't been hovered for some time. Then there it was in front of me, the book that every kid in the school feared of opening, the horror of the consceques it will give you, the apparently different world you will enter. It was on an ancient brown wooded book shelf that was just able to stand up. It had gold triangles on each corner of the book shelf. I gently took the fragile book of the shelf. The cover of the jet black book was covered in thick dust, as if someone had left the book for years. As I wiped the dust of the book, the dust covered my hand and turned it black. The book is extremely thick it must be the width of my arm at least. It's really heavy like a bucket full of water. The book looks very worn, the cover of it just readable saying "what really happens after death?" with the horrible scingfent picture of death, the grim reaper with a sort of blade in his right hand. As I held the book I kept thinking of the things people told me about it like "you'll never be seen again after reading a page
Of Mice and Men; The next chapter
Of Mice and Men; The next chapter The brisk autumn breeze swirled the brown and crisp leaves in the same old pattern. George felt he had seen this all too many times. He needed a change. "But how?" he said quietly to himself while he sat alone in the bunk house. He heard an uproar outside and muffled his ears with his hands. He didn't want to hear anybody or anything. Slim came striding in. "Those guys are fighting again over money. Is that the on'y that matters at this ranch?" George just lay on his bed with his eyes closed and his hands over his ears. Slim sensed George's remorse. "George, you hadda' do it. There was no other way. If you hadnta' done it, Curley wouldda'" "I know" George mumbled "I admire your courage, George!" Slim said as he patted him on the stomach and got up. "You comin' to town tonight?" "no" was all George could manage to say as he was holding his tears back so well that nobody would have known he even had a tear in his body. Slim just nodded his head once and left the room. As the door slammed shut the uproar began again when the rest of the ranch workers tried to ask Slim for advice. The noise seemed to move away. It sounded like they were following Slim as he tried to escape their company. George just lay on his bed, still, alone and silent as one tear lined his dirty face. George closed his tired eyes and prayed for sleep. His prayer was
Waiting for the bus
Waiting for the bus "I don't want a friend like you anyway!" screamed Danni. "You need a friend like me, because I'm the only friend you've got!" retorted Nikki angrily. "Stupid cow!" shouted Danni. "Don't think you're staying at mine tonight!" Nikki threatened. "I wouldn't want to," with that Danni grabbed her bags and stormed out slamming the door behind her. She stood on the doorstep for a split second to catch her breath and calm down, before she continued down the path. Danni was tempted to turn around, but she resisted it, she didn't want to seem weak. It had been a stupid argument, she was supposed to have taken her to a concert, but took her cousin instead, as it was her cousin's favourite band. It was also Nikki's favourite band and she had not been best pleased not to be her first choice. It had turned into a massive argument and resulted in her storming out at twelve o'clock at night. Nikki and Danni had been best friends for ten years, and it hurt Danni every time they argued. She wasn't sure how Nikki felt; she was hard and tried her best not to show her feelings. Nikki was noticed everywhere she went, she was a stand out in a crowd kind of girl, not just from the way she looked, but by the way she acted, When she walked into a room everyone would turn and look for a second. Unlike Danni, when she walked into a room people ignored her, not even a glance in
The Game That Went Wrong!
It was 9.00pm on a dark and cold night. Michael, Simon, Steffanie and Gemma were walking through the woods. "God it's a bit dark here init!" said Steff as they were trudging through the dirt and the tall, dark trees. "God you're a wimp!" said Mike as he came up behind her and scared her half to death. Steff grabbed his hand so tightly you could nearly see his face turn purple. "Guys.....!" shouted gem a few feet behind them, "I think we've lost si!" "What do you mean LOST him?" "He was right behind us!" said a scared and worried steff, "you know si, he's probably just being stupid" "yeh well it isn't very funny is it! "Si, Si, give it up now, it isn't funny" They kept walking while shouting him. "Guys, he's bin gone for nearly an hour now, where is he?" gem said! They kept walking and finally came to the end of the woods; Steff was really worrying about him now. "I thought I said to stick together but no... That's too much to ask isn't it! We can't do anything without someone going missing or something going wrong!" "Try his mobile" gem pulled out her mobile and started ringing him, "it's switched off!" "Great... just bloody great!" "Si!" screamed steff. It was at this point that everyone was starting to get worried. "What if something has happened to him?" "Will you shut up; you're giving me a headache! Look he said he was going to hide in the woods and try and scare you but
Original writing- My Decision about a Scary Ride
My Decision about a Scary Ride As we entered the gigantic theme park on a lovely summer day a voice from behind us shouted, "STOP!" We quickly turned around like spinning machines and we saw a 6 foot tall security guard running toward us like fast cheetah, his face was red like a rosy red tomato and it looked like his hat was going to fall off. I got a bit nervous because he was running towards us like we had just killed someone. I turned around and looked at Alisha and I saw that she was looking down with embarrassment, then I looked around me and I saw that everyone was staring at us like we had committed some sort of crime. "Girls you have forgotten your tickets" the security guard said. I felt so relieved that I let out a big sigh, like I had just ran a marathon, and Alisha and I started to laugh. After that we got our tickets from the security guard and headed towards the first ride which was called Space Invaders. When we got to the Space Invaders I could smell the horrible smell of oil, which smelt like a leaking gas, which made me feel a bit sick. I could also hear the big racket of the ride, and the screaming and shouting of the people on it, when it went whooshing past me in to the far distance like a crying baby slowly falling asleep. We waited in the queue for about ten minutes before it was our turn. When we got off the Space Invaders Alisha and I were
There I was at the worlds largest and most hectic airport. It felt like a whole new world around me but it was all to come to an abrupt end shortly.
Confusion at the Busy Airport There I was at the world's largest and most hectic airport. It felt like a whole new world around me but it was all to come to an abrupt end shortly. As the thousands of people around me went on with their lives so did I. Then it all started, as I approached the counter I overheard some police officers stating that a terror alert had been sounded and that all officers should be on high alert. My heart started pumping faster and faster, I started sweating and my adrenaline levels shot up. Everywhere nook I looked at I saw flashing red lights hooked up to countdown timers that seemed as though they were going to blow up any second and to mention the eerie sounds I kept hearing. As fast as I could I checked in my baggage and headed straight to my boarding gate. As I ran up the stairs I caught a glimpse of what looked like a flashing light wired up to a small box. Instinctively I shouted 'BOMB' but within seconds I realised that it was a camera not a bomb. What have I done I thought, I had caused a stamped in the world's busiest airport. Everybody scampered to grab their belongings and headed towards any possible path to escape. All officers immediately reacted and within a matter of minutes everything was under control. However it was too late alone I was responsible for the deaths of what seemed to at least a hundred people. There, in front of

Saad Mehmood English Language Coursework Production Piece One Mokia 6230: The Faithful Sidekick. Her gaze meets yours from across the dance floor. You coolly scan the place while sipping your drink as if it didn't register. Aware of her stare you heartily laugh at a joke which barely deserved a smile. You look back to that spot; nowhere to be seen. High heeled footsteps are heard from behind you, they're getting louder, they've stopped. Your stomach jolts, either that chicken vindaloo doesn't agree with you, or she's behind you. You exchange cool pleasantries. Sara; works in media. She's a looker, wait until the lads see her. You gave her your number, smiled and turned on your heels. The cat gets the cream. Until she pops the question, the dreaded question. You try explaining it, that you'd remember it or write it on your hand; no use, she insists. Insists you put her number in your phone, if it can be called that. You reluctantly extract the machine from your pocket. You need two hands just to hold it, it was so big let alone attempt to break the code needed to unlock the damned thing. One look at the phone and she conveniently remembers she forgot to feed "Becks", her goldfish and is gone. You quickly stash the phone in your back pocket. You're left there. Middle of the club, alone and with vibrations from your back pocket so alarmingly loud, that bouncers come and
