Never again… By Darragh

Once again I found myself walking down the pale pavement, two minutes from my house. As I looked on I could l make out a sun-beaten ladder in the distance. As if on cue, I started sweating and turning red. I tried my best to walk past it but I couldn’t. I got a sinking feeling in my stomach when an old lady asked me if I was alright. I didn’t even answer her, I just ran home. I could feel my loose coins in my pocket jingle together as I ran.’Never again,’ I thought to myself, ‘am I going back there.’
