I will be writing a story about an American Family, who has a very
intelligent twelve year old child. Who has to undergo an Intelligence
test, to see how bright he actually is. After a few hours of waiting,
the results return and prove to be conclusive, and, as a result the
boy is forced to have his brain removed. And replaced because he is
seen as a threat to the future. It is either this, or faces
''So, it's tomorrow then?'', groaned the twelve year old boy. His
parents knew that yes, it was tomorrow. Tomorrow was the day when he
would have to undergo the intelligence test.
However, unlike most everyday tests, he did no preparation. This was
because he knew that if he prepared, it could have disastrous
consequences - it would make him appear even more intelligent than he
Meanwhile, his parents tried to persuade him to forget information
rather than remember It., because they knew that if he appeared to be
intelligent, then his brain would be removed and replaced by something
that was far from functional.
Peter himself was aware of the consequences and, as much as he tried
to stay focused on what he was doing at that time, he found it
virtually impossible. In just a few short hours, he would be meeting
with more people of his own age, to be examined and Interrogated.
At this time, he was simply gathering all of the essentials together,
as he might have to stay overnight, so that they could ''observe''

visit, but he knew that, even now it was all over, it was just
something he had to do by himself.
He wondered whether or not they knew already, although his facial
expression would probably say it all. If they didn't know already,
then they would do, as soon as he entered the kitchen. However, he
imagined that his parents already knew the outcome of the situation,
even if no one likes to talk about it.
All this because of his intelligence that would have brought
challenges to the people of the day about the way in which they lived.
All this because they saw him as a threat in the future.
He was unaware of whether or not his parents knew, but one thing he
did now know was that as soon as he entered the kitchen, the
conversation immediately seized and all eyes turned to him. No one
spoke a word.

- Original Writing Krrrriiiinnggg!!!. Ah, the sound of that bell never sounded so blissful on that day. It was time for our so-called sem-break while actually having trimesters. Everyone was so eager to get out of the classroom and go to their pre-planned gimmicks. Some were going to malls, some to their usual hang-out place, and others were itching to play basketball. I thought this break would be a lot of fun and that it would be a very good opportunity for me to catch up on the sleep I have been missing.... [tags: Papers]

- Original Writing I can't have been more than about 3 at the time. This is the main reason I can't remember much about this particular time. From the snippets I do remember, I shall try to explain to you, my last few days before I had to leave Turkey to come to London. I didn't actually know that this day was going to be different from any other; but when you're 3 you don't actually have much control over what your day will be like so this was pretty much a given. My first memory of the day consists of the daily routines after you get up: washing your face, brushing your teeth.... [tags: Papers]
