Peachface Paragraph-5

I hurriedly walk towards the chimney, scanning every direction. It would do me no damage to take cover under a warm roof. I feel the snow brewing, the temperature is definitely dropping to a colder degree. I pass a nearby tree which has a craving on it “wrong way, turn back”. A blood stained ribbon is hanging from the branches of a tree. The house is in my vision, the iron rusted picket fence surrounding the property has no entrance and it’s six feet high.

Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin Franklin
Benjamin Franklin had many professions including an inventor, politician and writer. One of his most famous works was the Poor Richard’s Almanac and Declaration of Independence. Benjamin Franklin started work as apprentice for his brother at a printing factory, this is where some of his many ideas had originated.

Another of his great works as an inventor was in electrical theories. This invention was used to learn how to understand electric laws, it was the kite and key theory. The experiment was conducted using one kite, one key and one electrical storm. The kite would be flown up high near the clouds of the electrical storm, the kite would be struck by lighting and travel downwards to connect to the key which was attached to the string of the kite. Once Benjamin Franklin touched the key it would discharge onto him which would finally give him an electrical shock. This experiment helped him understand the laws of electricity and help create the use of electricity in daily life.

As I fall asleep, the pounding and thumping on my door is fading away and soon there is an absence of noise. The silence is interrupted by a gun shoot. A Revolver and people is all I see, suddenly the Tapral Express comes to grinding holt. I salvage all I can hold in my elegant and petty hands and decide to plunge myself out of the window. I scamper into the woods and that’s when I see a smoking chimney.

The Passionfruit Eating Possum

As I jump for joy on an unusually used trampoline, I see the view of the farm, the cows, the trees and the dog holding in her mouth a deflated netball and she’s bouncing around like crazy. I’m in the town of Hamilton in the country at my grandparent’s farm.

I woke up to the sound of Lorna (my grandma) talking,

“Sorry I woke you, but Ron (my grandpa) caught a possum in a trap, the one who is eating all the passionfruit.”

I open my eyes to see on my Mum’s phone that it’s quarter to seven. Lorna keeps talking,

 “We are going to relocate her to the Wannon River, so we better get going.”

I’m very excited at this remark. So Mum and I get dressed and walk Buddy AKA the crazy dog. We walk for a block watching cows, horses and for cars. Once we finish, we all separate and go shower. When we are all ready, we ask Kerrie (my auntie) if she would like to come, she replies

“No, thanks.”

We all hop in the car, Ron drives, Mum sits in the front and I sit in the back. We pass farm land and see lots of sheep and occasionally llamas. Ron also tells his famous self-murdering stories. While we arrive I see all the bush land and then the Wannon Fall emerges, I watch the water streaming down and then to hear constant sound of water crashing. As I push the button to lower the window I hear the noise of water and as we drive the sound disappears and becomes the sound of birds.

As the car pulls over to park, I jump out and wait for Ron to open up the back so I can see the possum. I just want to pick it up and hug it, but I know it would probably scrape my eyes out if I did. I watch the possum and Mum tries to get a photo but before she can Ron releases the lock hatch and the possum pushes the door and she is off. Jumping over tree stumps and hoping over broken braches, this possum is fast! And before we can say goodbye, she has disappeared in to the landscape.

I quickly consume my champagne and I abruptly place the glass back on the waiters’ tray. I leave the cart, and I immediately head back to my room. I glance at my pocket watch and see that it is beginning to become late, that’s when I hear the thumping on the door, it then becomes hammering sound.I feel paralyzed.

Peachface

As the young girl was watching her surroundings, I had a quick inspection of my pocket watch, 2 minutes till the Tapral Express arrives. I decided to go for a brief stroll. Suddenly I glanced over to were the young girl was standing and she had disappeared. In that same instance, the Tapral Express had appeared. The young peachfaced girl had escaped from my ignorant shortsightedness. I boarded the Express and it departed. I dismissed the peachface girl from my mind and vamoosed to the cuisine and beverage cart. While I was indulging a glass of Champagne and generating conversation, a young girl came in it took me a whole minute to realize it was her, she still had the voluminous grin smirking across her peachface. It was so contagious, I smiled back.

 

Peachface

In the cold month of December while I was waiting for train at Calburg Station , I recall I saw a peachface looking girl. She was wearing a red tartan coat which was too large for her and a grey discoloured flat cap, she was holding a cooking utensil and she had a voluminous grin which was quiet unnatural for a young girl of her age. At first sight she looked poor and homeless , not a very good mannered child, that’s when I noticed the extravagant suitcase next to her and she had began to unfold. This girl looked familiar, I decided  to observe the child a little longer, I supposed it would not harm anyone.
