Seed Special in partnership with Stokesley School, North Yorkshire:
He killed them.
He killed my entire family. And for what reason? A small debt.
My family: they weren’t all bad. Yes, they gambled, yes, they drank and yes, they did a few bad things, but they couldn’t help it; they didn’t have control over it.
I stood, still, stiller than the moon above my deep-thought-filled head, wondering. Wondering if I should do the same to him - kill his family? The same way that he killed mine?
Making it hurt.
My mind felt overwhelmed; should I make him go through what I went though, or not?
A big thank you to Mr Adams from Stokesley School's English Department for inspiring his Creative Writing Club students to contribute to Seed.
