Behind The Gate

A gate. A padlock. No key. No one knows what is behind the gate. Do they want to find out? Who knows. What will happen if they find out? Who knows. But one girl decided to see for herself. And then her life is turned around..


2. Search For The Gate

Blue sky, sun blazing and the birds singing, it looks a good day. As I walk along the path cars rush past me making me jump. I’m incredibly twitchy it’s unreal right now. My stomach rumbles with fear. I don’t like that at all. The housing estate on my right looks happy, bright and cheerful. But when I look left at the forest, it brings the feeling of fear and dread to my heart. Looking over my shoulder one last time I make sure no one is there. I take a deep breath in, I look right, I look left, and then peg on to the other side of the road into the trees.

SNAP! Straight into a pile twigs and I fall face flat into grass. “Ow……” I moan and then stand up. Ahead of me there are tall trees, bushes with many poisonous berries and a very small footpath which is covered by the long grass. As I fight my way through I am scratched by the many branches and prickles sticking out. Blood pours down my arms, legs and face and I start to panic more.

No sign of the gate yet. I move faster and faster. Blood, sweat and tears trickle down my face, heart racing faster, and my legs are about to give in on me – BOOM! Straight into a tree. I fall flat on my back.

“Ahhhh!” I yell. Blood is spurting out of my nose and searing pain enters my brain. My nose is broken. Looking around frantically, and panicking I look for something to pull me up. Something black, furry and moving catches my left eye. A spider. A big, back, furry, scary looking spider. It looks like it’s been through nuclear waste and doubled in size. I feel my eyes widen in their sockets. Then, for some reason, I throw myself at the tree trying to get away from it. Climbing up the tree I manage to grip a dirty, thick branch covering myself in mud.

“Urgh” I say looking at my front caked in mud. The spider is now climbing up the tree. I freeze into shock, I feel my arms and legs growing col and my heart drop below my stomach “Ahh!” I jump backwards hitting my head off something hard. I grit my teeth to block out the pain and then sprint through the bushes ahead of me. BANG! I hit something metal.

“Oww,” I say out loud again. Pulling the branches and vines that are in the way I start to reveal a very rusty and dirty gate. I’ve found the gate; the feeling of joy arouses the air as I feel the bars.  Then I remember the spider after me. In a quick progression I grab the bars and jump it. Looking back I see the spider stop on the other side. It backs off a little, and then turns and goes off. “Phew”
