The Chase. By Darragh Q

I hurried down the dense, abandoned street. It was a cold and misty night. I took a sharp turn down a small, slippery alleyway. It smelled like a huge 20 year old sandwich as I struggled to pass. I dared to glance behind me as I peered through the alleyway. I could just make out a burst of white smoke rising into the air. Even though I had run through muck, water and sewers I actually felt very energetic! Just as I started to look in front of me again I slipped on a cylindrical object. I looked down to see a battery lying in pools of water. Then I felt someone jabbing their knee into my back. I knew this was the end…

  1. Well done Darragh.
    I really enjoyed your story this week. You’ve described the scene vividly which has allowed me to create a picture in my head of you in this abandoned street.
    It leaves me with lots of unanswered questions. Who are you running from? And why?
    Keep up the great work.

  2. Hi Darragh Q,
    This is a clever piece of writing. I like the way you use your description with a list of adjectives and the comma. You use some ‘WOW’ vocabulary which adds to the quality of your writing!
