Think Again. Essay

1049 words - 4 pages

The day gradually transforms into night, and as I walk down the gloomy, empty street Christine's words of concern repeat in my mind "Maurice don't be stupid and meet up with them men, they're the wrong sort of people to get involved with." I have known Christine ever since the age of eight and we still are best friends even with both of us at twenty-one years old. We both listened to each others advice through much of our days. Although on this occasion I chose not to listen to her. Ever since my mother's psychotic rage killed my father, nothing has been the same. I now live with Christine, while my mother, she lives with criminals in the state prison. That is what wrecked my life.When I met this guy on the street, Darryl, I learnt he was one of the most respected men in the neighborhood. He said I should come meet him so he could introduce his men to me, and that's when I thought Darryl could actually bring something into my deteriorating life. After walking a couple of blocks I turn into the alley where I was to meet Darryl. There was Darryl standing in the midst of very five large and intimidating men. I now understand why Christine had been concerned about Darryl and his men."Maurice, good to see you!" called out Darryl walking forward and putting out his hand to shake mine.

But after turning the corner Darryl and his men came to a stop, as I stood behind wondering why. Then I realised a young woman about fifty metres away from us is walking alone on the footpath. She looks as if she were in search of someone. Then it was clear Darryl had found what he was looking for and at that instant he whispers in my ear "Here Maurice is that time we have some fun." Darryl then signals his men and they start to gain on the young woman. One of Darryl's men takes his jacket off and holds it open. They are all five metres behind her and still are unnoticed. In a matter of seconds the man with the jacket creeps up. He fiercely wraps the jacket around her head. The other men run up. They knock her to the ground. Immediately they start punching and kicking her. Even from underneath the jacket wrapped...
