Lewis Burton

Seed Special in partnership with Stokesley School, North Yorkshire: It was a cold summer night, she was walking through the field, the long grass brushing against her ankles. This place felt like home, the refreshing sound of silence made her calm. As she stared towards the moon, she knew she was in the right place. She shed one tear as the silence became no more. She prayed that her kids would be safe and just like that it was morning. She went back home to say her goodbyes and then she went to heaven. The killers have still not been found to this day. -- A big thank you to Mr Adams from Stokesley School's English Department for inspiring his Creative Writing Club students to contribute to Seed.
