North End Park

March 16th, 2017 · 6 Comments · General News

A petal brushed against our cheeks and the sun blinded us. North End Park stood before us and we couldn’t believe it was winter , it felt like summer.

A sudden cold breeze stopped our thoughts proceeding. I remembered why we came here.

The evergreen soldiers stood slender , tall and … menacing.

Everything else seemed to blur as we got closer, ” Race you to the other side! ” shouted Poppy as she rounded a corner and disappeared from sight.

I was all alone.

I was more cautious. Each little noise seemed to make my heart thud and my pulse race.

I felt as if something was watching me from the towers of greenery.

I was walking for hours and still no sign of Poppy. I tried to think she was out by now but I knew she couldn’t have it was impossible.

I can’t turn back now! It was my idea in the first place to do this , what was I thinking?

Poppy. The name sends shivers down my spine. Thoughts filled my mind of where she could be : out of here , still here.I don’t know!

Suddenly I heard an earsplitting scream.


I ran to Poppy.

After a while , I finally found her lying face down on the muddy ground , frozen still. Paralysed by fear , I waited.

Her face lifted. Red eyes , ripped clothes , cheeky grin.

” Come and play with me! ” Her voice was deeper , rougher – meaner even.

This wasn’t the Poppy I knew. I felt worthless. My best friend had been taken from me.

I couldn’t take it I had to get out of  there.

I’m still there pacing the floor of North End Park Maze.

Looking for a way out. Looking but never finding …
