the old man
gasped for breath
We only had ten minutes to complete this task, mine might not be the best, but I feel like other people could have done better in my English class. So, without anymore speaking, this is what I wrote:
He gasped for breath, he could feel his heart beating louder in his slashed chest. Darkness surrounded the man and his neighbour, there was a loud sound of closing shutters off in the distance where he and his neighbour could see a dull blue light of a Tavern sign. "It seems the madmen have lost us." The man exclaimed, starting to jog off towards the light. "For now.." The neighbour mumbled under his breath as he began to follow. The sudden silence that filled the street was terrifying, and too their horror, the sounds of thundering boots of the villains were closing in, seemingly in all directions. It didn't take long before the two men were surrounded by man, ruffled looking madmen. "You've done it this time, Chap." The neighbour stood there shuddering in fear as he squeaked out his words. The eye of the old man, who had pushed himself past the others, was looking wildly at the two men. Within a sudden motion, blood splattered over the cool damp ground. And then they were gone, vanishing back into the cover of the darkness.
Now, it was hard to include all of the given words in just ten minutes. I'd love to do this again, but of course with new words and as much time as I can get. I honestly love the plot I made, of course, I love dark, twisted and eerie stories.
