🍰 A Piece of Cake: Noose

The little village of Hangilton was a joyful place – or at least it used to be. Many years ago, a girl named Lucy hung herself from a tree next to her tiny wooden shop. Since then, nobody went near the tree or the shop.

Alex, a boy of 18 years of age, lived in a shack in Hangilton. He had heard such bloodcurdling stories of people who had dared to step near the tree from which Lucy hung herself. Alex was very curious about Lucy. He decided that he would go to see the tree that night. He waited until everyone was asleep then set off, armed with his blade.

The atmosphere around Lucy’s deathbed was absolutely silent. He opened the gate in the fence which bordered the territory. Alex looked behind him. There was no one in sight. He continued to walk until he reached the only tree in the patch of land. It was beside a rundown hut.

He examined the branches of the tree. They all looked normal except for one which had stains of blood and several scratches on it. The young boy gulped. Just then, the body of a girl came tumbling down and hit the floor with a loud crash. Alex jumped back and yelped.

The girl’s body lay on the ground in a crumpled heap. He approached her cautiously, his blade at the ready. He poked her with his hand…and she leapt up and grabbed hold of a nearby trunk. Her hands were horrid. The fingers were long, black and bony. They resembled the paws of a rotten crocodile’s corpse. Her face could be seen clearly. Two luminous white eyes were placed on either side of her crooked, black nose. Her lips were two paper-thin, wobbly lines on the bottom of her face, which were dark red in colour. She wore a ragged yellowing dress and no shoes, exposing her skeletal feet. She had bushy, brown hair and a thick, white noose around her neck.

This is Lucy!’ thought Alex. ‘Wait, but it can’t be. Lucy’s dead. Then this must be her spirit!’ Lucy let go of the branch and landed in front of Alex, who stepped back.

“Listen, I don’t mean any harm. Please leave me alone.” said Alex. But she took no heed. She advanced towards Alex, swiping her claw-like hands in the air and scratching his arm. Alex winced in pain as rose-red blood oozed out of his huge wounds. Suddenly, a bunch of ropes appeared out of nowhere and coiled around his arms and legs. They pulled outwards, as if trying to tear his limbs off. Another rope formed a noose around his neck and tied itself to the bloody branch. Alex struggled to breathe. Then the rope around his neck snapped and he could take in air normally again. The other ropes stopped pulling but kept themselves firmly wrapped around Alex’s limbs.

He flew over to Lucy. There was then a sharp stabbing pain in his back. There was another one in his arm and another in his leg. Soon, the pains were all over his body. The helpless boy jerked and yelped as he was tortured in mid-air. A wide hole started to form in the ground below Alex. It was completely pitch-black. Before he knew it, he was dropped down into it and was travelling at great speed. He screamed for help but no one could hear him. The wind made his eyes water. Finally, he could see a dim light at the end. He came out of the long hole and found himself back in Hangilton. He was hanging from the tree, dead.

The Five Diamonds!

I had a dream so big and loud,

I jumped so high I touched the clouds!

Wo-o-o-o-o-o-oo!

Wo-o-o-o-o-o-oo…

Oh, sorry! I can’t get the tune out of my head coz I’m in my emotional mode. This song reminds me of my fellow band mates in Moseley (old school). The people in the band were the twins Antony and Alex, Ellie, Natalia and of course, me! Sometimes I wonder what they are doing. I’m sure that Antony is having fun with Alex and their pet budgies Spot and Sport. Ellie is surely enjoying the weekends with her brother Josh. Well, the one thing that I know is that our friendship will never end. As my emotional mode is still on, I might as well write a poem which is dedicated to The Five Diamonds…

Five Diamonds Are Forever

We used to be so great together,

Our music makes me as light as a feather!

We practised every day and night,

There were so many songs that we would write

We made great plans for the hundred tomorrows,

But sadly I had to leave you in sorrow

We all have friends that come and go,

We meet new people as we grow

Friends pick you up when you fall down,

They’ll make you smile and wipe off that frown

Friends grow old, don’t think that they don’t,

But friendship will blossom, I doubt that it won’t…

And fate will bring us back together,

Coz mate, Five Diamonds are forever!

(A poem by: The Pawsome Lion)

Before I bid you goodbye, let me share a song that me and the band used to sing. It is called Best Day Of My Life by American Authors. Here is their music video:

p/s: Five Diamonds, if you are reading this, never forget that our friendship will last forever…

Thinking of you…

Today was just a normal school day. We learnt about the usual subjects, Maths, Literacy etc. It wasn’t really an exciting day at school, you could say. But coming back home was the highlight of the day. I don’t mean because I got to rest for a little while (impossible to rest when I have this blog! 😀 ), it’s because I came home and found a letter from Alex, one of my best friends from Moseley (old school)! I was so astonished. I hadn’t heard from any of my old friends for months! It was all just so surprising.  I picked up the letter and opened it. I was extremely shocked when I found out that Alex had written 10 pages of A4 paper! It looked like he had written about the whole month when I read it. When I finished reading it, I felt like crying. To receive 10 pages of writing through the post from my best friend from my old school, it’s just too much! Now, I can’t write for too long coz I have a student council meeting tomorrow so I need some beauty sleep. Be sure to come back and visit my blog! Bye! 😉

bff

p/s: please wish me luck for my meeting tomorrow!
