Audience: Teen-AdultPurpose: To entertainNARRATIVE/DESCRIPTIVE ESSAYAs his senses returned to him, the world around him was a blur although he could make out the familiar red velvet curtains in the bay window and the polished wooden floor of his $2 million home. His doctor wandered in as he rubbed his eyes and stretched his lanky body.'My bike?" he queried groggily 'What happened to it?''Jon, Jon, Jon, what've you done to yourself this time?'' bike' Jon yawned incoherently, rubbing his tired eyes.'Your bike's gone Jon, and frankly you should be focusing on more important things. The company's going down hill and fast.' Jon's brother and co founder of the HATRIX Empire strode into the room, his face like thunder.'You're the face of the company Jon, you need to be out there heading the company.''Now now Mr Knight, Jon here needs his rest, he's only just woken up and you shouldn't be barging in here...'
