Alison was not sure if she was to close her eyes, or stare at the people around her.
She felt silly lying there with everyone looking transfixed to what Carla was saying.
She could hear her mum speaking, it seemed a strange language; louder and louder she spoke, the others looking at her, each holding hands around the table. No facial expressions showing amongst them.
Alison stared up towards the sky, the pale lilac sky looking back down at her. Her mum’s voice was heard in the distance, as Alison began to glide into a world of her own. She seemed to be flying above the clouds, floating high into the lilac sky. She could see the others standing like statues below her, unaware that Alison was no longer there, as the sky suddenly began moving. Quicker and quicker it went, daylight was soon to become darkness; faster and faster she went, until the sky turned blue.
She began to gently float down from the sky. The cottage was freshly painted and a pretty, young woman with long, black hair and brown eyes smiled at her, putting her arms around Alison and kissing her gently on her cheek. She knew she was in the body of another, but whose?
The lady held Alison's hand gently, and walked her into the cottage. The smell of food was cooking in a pot hanging over an open fire and a tumbler of ale was poured for Alison as she sat down.
“You must be hungry. You have done so well in making my home habitable once more,” the lady said smiling. Alison nodded.
“I don’t have much, but you have made me feel like I have riches that are desired by others,” the lady smiled gently. “I wish to be more than just friends with you Rundsflin; I want us to be of marriage one day, and have children. I have the love in my heart to give to you, and I hope tha...

...l, what a good result for all. I am pleased for you Alison, the spirit is no longer living inside you and amongst the other beings of this kingdom,” Lidah commented clapping her hands. “Now, I must ask if the young beings will leave. We have much to discuss about the war. I have had a message from the queen seeking our agreement that we will be ready for the battle. We need to be in the kingdom this coming week, at the latest.” Lidah announced.
“You must all remember that now the spirit has gone, Amir is no longer evil too. He regrets the war and wishes that it was not going to happen. But alas, the army at his castle will not be backing down. But please. I don’t want Amir being killed—”Alison pleaded before she walked away, not waiting for a reply.
“I’ll take them home,” Matthew stated quietly, as he followed Alison and Simon before closing the door behind them.

- Alison had sat looking at the fire most of the night, the orange and red flames licking at her thoughts. She felt sorry for the younger Amir. How lost he looked, so innocent and so blameless. She knew that when Amir did speak of his true life, she knew he would be upset, and feel horrified as to how the young boy became an evil beast who destroyed lives without feeling any guilt for his actions. Matthew had passed out for the night. He had taken to the strong cider with delight. The pure alcohol was as good as any that was bought in his local supermarket he exclaimed to Alison, as he began slurring his words and singing loudly every now and then, and making Alison shush him so as not to arou...

- Matthew and Alison arrived back at the school. The alarm bells still ringing and still as loud and annoying as when they departed the school. They stayed in the attic, hiding under tables, hoping not to get caught by the police, who were no doubt walking around the building and looking for the suspects’ who had broken in. Alison sat huddled away in a corner hoping that if anyone came in, then no one would see her. She was still thinking about the young Amir. She felt sorry for him, and longed to have been there a while longer.... [tags: suspects, alarm]

- Simon and Alison began to walk back to the house. She could not believe the damage the storm had caused, and the fact that it was the spirit inside her that could have caused it. She knew that she needed help from the union. Simon may have calmed the spirit for the time being, but the strength of it was much fiercer than anticipated. She went inside her house and found the address that her mother had given her, and ran back to Simon, who stood in the street waiting for her. “I have no idea where Summer Hill Crescent is,” Alison sighed when she handed the small piece of paper to Simon....

- The group breathed a sigh of relief when they came out of the small room, stretching their bodies and taking deep breaths. The sky of lilac and the bright pink sun was shining down on them and making the place feel eerie and sinister. “Why Frinda?” Alison asked her mum, when she was able to fight her way through the small crowd towards her. “That’s the hometown of the spirit. To get him to the other side, we need to get him to the place of his death. If we had rid the spirit elsewhere, the consequences would be fatal; with this one, at least.... [tags: kill, path, plan]

You have much to do this morning.” “Mum I’m tired; let me sleep for another five minutes,” Alison groaned. “Not today, you have to go somewhere,” Carla smiled slyly. Alison groaned even more, before climbing out of bed. “Mum. It’s only 7.30!” Alison protested when she looked at the clock on her bedside table. “Yes, and believe me, you need all the hours you can get. Get dressed and come down for breakfast,” Carla said as she walked out of the room.... [tags: farewell, morning, safe]

- Near extinction fictional narratives are often constructed around a recognizable Western-based three-act structure – an expository opening in which a catastrophe (or an oncoming catastrophe) introduces itself to the main characters, followed by a middle act in which the protagonists must negotiate themselves through a reconfigured social and/or geographic landscape, followed by a climax which the characters are re-identified into the population, now as survivors. By considering this format as a rite de passage (Van Gennep 1909), a concept that examines various social rituals as passage from one state of social being to another, these accounts may also be reconsidered as status changes t...

Close Readings of Historical and Fictional Narratives of Conspiracy Theories: Challenging the Dominant Narrative
- Conspiracy theories have gained a greater discourse in the twenty-first century. Fictional narratives, Hollywood blockbusters, television series and documentaries, and many other pop culture mediums have used conspiracies to spin tales and capture an audience. In this essay I would like to argue that the dominant narrative of a historical event exists because the elite have the power to manipulate and transform it. The group in power values a hegemonic society, perpetuating certain myths in order to create social cohesion within a nation.... [tags: hegemonic society, Titanic, Don DeLilo, Libra]
