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

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!"

Life Of The Party - Original Writing Essay

- It was April 22rd 2014, and it started out like any other day. I had just hopped into bed with my mother like I usually did after I woke up on school days, only to find her solemn and hear her say, “Debbie, Ethan was shot last night and was found dead at the scene”. I remember laying in bed and letting those words sink in- trying to fully grasp how this would alter my life and community. The words that my mother spoke quickly shook my world up like a snowglobe and it took a while to settle back down....   [tags: Life, Death, Fayray, Sibling]

Graduation Speech - Original Writing

- Okay, before anything else, I will say that I have run this letter through both PaperRater and Grammarly, but I am still going to apologize for any grammar mistakes you pick up in this paper, because I always manage to have some. Now, with my apology out of the way, I would like to tell you how thankful I am to have had you as my teacher this year. I will admit that at the beginning of the year, I was filled with trepidation, mostly because even though my past seniors told me I would be fine in the class, I also had quite a few seniors tell me that the class was incredibly hard....   [tags: Writing, Thought, Government, Writing style]

Being part of a big family was difficult, but you always had someone to talk to, but not this time. I was generally closest to Rabia. She was two years younger than me, and to her, everything was simple and had a simple answer. I think that’s why we were so close. She was always great if you had a problem, or needed help. She was also fun to be with, making up games that people would normally call childish, but because she made them up, they were ‘cool’....   [tags: Papers]

- Original Writing Having always been of an inquisitive mind, the complex processes involved in the natural sciences especially fascinate me; which is why I have chosen to study biomedical science for my degree subject. What I enjoy most about the study of living organisms is the ability to study them right down at its cellular level and learning about the endless ways in which factors can affect them in health and disease.

Tom prised the knife from Michael's failing body. His gang had already
dispersed out of the car park; Tom threw the knife into a thick bush
and ran to the bus stop leaving Michael in the middle of the road.

Pete parked up along side his 1884 Victorian Terrace house. He slammed
the door of his silver Ford Fiesta, and walked up the brown path. He
pulled out his key from his suit and opened the wooden door.

"Hello, anybody in?" He shouted up the stairs.

There was no reply, so he walked into the front room looked around and
went back into the corridor. He looked at the phone and checked for
messages, there were none. He started to dial the phone.

"Hello Mum?" he said down the phone.

"Okay! I'm coming now!"

Pete slammed down the phone put a jacket on and left the house. He
shut the door and ran to his silver car.
