I don’t care where,” said Liz.

As they pulled into the drive David’s brother, Peter and his wife Mandy greeted them. Mandy wasn’t liked by the Wilson family and seen as a bad influence on Peter. She often made his decisions for him. They got out the car and greeted the family. “Kevin, get the bags boy,” commanded David, as the rest of the family walked inside. Kevin was left to carry the rest of the family’s large heavy suitcases, a rather hard job for a nine year old, but Kevin was used to hard graft.
As Kevin dropped the last of the extremely heavy bags in the living room the rest of the family were drinking coffee and eating lunch in the kitchen. As Kevin walked in, not surprisingly, they had forgotten to make Kevin some lunch. “Sorry, I forgot Kevin, there is some bread and butter in the cupboard if you want” said Mandy. “Can you show us your garden flowers please Aunty?” said Rachael, “sure, follow me girls” replied Mandy as she walked out the back door followed by Liz and her daughters.
After they had left, Peter had just finished explaining to David about his brand-new sports car he had bought not long ago. “Follow me into the garage and I’ll show you” said Peter excitedly. As David and Peter left, Kevin found himself alone once more. He was a quite boy and found it hard to fit in so he often found himself wandering and exploring places; he very much enjoyed being by himself.
He had decided against eating the bread found in the cupboard as it looked like it hadn’t been touched for months and decided to explore the forest and farm fields surrounding his aunty and uncles house. He walked out of the front door and opposite him was a large wood in the distance. These dark woods intrigued Kevin and he set off into the distance.
After about an hour Kevin reached the woods at mid-evening. The sun was beginning to set as Kevin entered the woods with the idea of setting up a tree house in one of the trees. He strolled further into the woods and with every step, his heart pounded faster and faster and evil thoughts began to enter his mind. There was an evil presence surrounding him, drawing him into a destructive state of mind. Anger and rage began filling his body, all the hatred for people that mistreated him in the past combined into one evil filled idea of revenge. He turned around, his eyes filled with hate as if peering into them you were able to see the fiery depths of hell. He proceeded out of the strange woods, something amazing has occurred, the presence of the woods had built up a feeling of revenge in Kevin and as he walked further towards the house he had one idea in mind, revenge.
