This is an except from a short story I wrote in High School in 2002. I was a Junior (11th grade).

Authors Notes ::

These are just bits of a short story I wrote in High school. The snippets are also from the rough draft, so it may not make sense. The story itselt ended up being about six pages long. I never got it back, as the teacher kept it to show future classes how a story should be wrote (I'm very proud of this fact). On this draft I got a Check Plus for the spelling and grammar mistakes present. I fixed them for the final version as well as changed things around. I wrote this story when I was 16 and a junior. It was an English assignment.
