GET THIS


Extract:

There I was, dancing naked on the front lawn of suburbia, my heart pumping to the pulse of the sprinkler, spray-wet skin and diamonds beading my hair.

“Dance with me.” I screamed at you; at your bedroom window, no longer our bedroom window.

______

I saw you cowering behind the curtain. I felt your blood run cold. I saw you turn uncertainly to the woman, no girl, behind you. She is deranged, you would say, and pull a sheet around your nakedness, exposed by my nakedness, outside, not in. Mad bitch, mad, mad. I felt your fear as you saw your world come crashing down. I threw up my arms and laughed.

    Wow, this is a brilliant story! I loved reading this – very absorbing and Carver like. Loved the idea of the sprays of water. Well done, I’m away to read it again xxx

      Hi Allychat, thanks for the encouraging comment. This was my homework essay. I now have to write the essay. I’m so glad I am only doing one class – you must be feeling a bit swamped with several assignments at once.
