Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
I was too scared to go home. I thought Mum would go mad when she found out that I’d taken her camera to school and lost it. So I just walked. I suppose I knew that things would only get worse. Now she’d be angry with me for being late, too. It was getting dark. A man came up to me asked me if I was lost. “Yes,” I said, “and my Mum’s going to kill me.”
“No, she won’t,” he laughed, and for an instant I thought he was going to show me the way to the bus stop. But his smile turned in to a grimace. “She won’t kill you,” he said, reaching out towards me. All I could do was run.
