How much is life worth? - Original Writing "He's waiting for you," Mumbled a fellow sixth former who brushed past Michael's left arm. Michael gulped and lugged his bag over his tired shoulder and proceeded to the tall black gate. He reached the gate; it was about 7ft tall with thin back metal bars. He looked over his left shoulder, scanned the school and carried on walking. He went left heading towards the car park that leads to the bus stop on the corner of the town. As Michael went past a few cars he noticed a group of year 11's who where also passing through the car park, he tagged along at the back, put on his bright red cap on top of his spiked jet black hair, did up the buttons on his blazer and kept low. This was quite hard for Michael as he was 5ft 11 and the rest where a mere 5ft 7, so he towered over them. Michael reached the height limit bar of the car park when he saw Tom. He ducked down behind the car but 1 of Tom's gang members had noticed him. He owed Tom money from an mp3 player that Tom had stolen for him. Tom was taller than Michael and had blonde hair. He was wearing a baseball cap and a dark blue tracksuit. He was 17 like Michael but did not go to school anymore. "Oi!" Shouted Tom. Michael kept quiet taking his red cap off and tucking it into his black blazer. He started to move around the car. "Oi Michael!" Shouted Tom for the second time. Michael popped his head up and replied saying "What?" "Where's my money?" Bellowed Tom "The full £100" "Ummm?" Muttered Michael lost for words. Michael stood still not knowing what to do. Tom walked over with his gang closely behind him. "I haven't got it today Tom, I'm sorry!" "You said that yesterday and the day before I still aint' got a pound of my money!"
