The Night

Written By Atishaya Gupta (Grade 7)

Lightning threw its weight on the dilapidated structure. A series of shrieks ran throughout the atmosphere, echoing the darkness within. Insight, glass tumbled with a loud ‘Crash!’ as a cloaked figure ran like a cheetah. He panted, tumbling over a shard of metal viciously grinning at hum.

Gunshots sang out, shattering the deafening silence. ‘Thud a Thud!’ Out rang the song of impending death. Cloaked Dude urged himself to move faster. A snake at the back of his cloak hissed, warning pain and torture to anyone who drew near.

Footsteps on the soaked ground were drawing near. They were so loud that the entire building shook with them. It seemed like the sky had dropped its weight on Cloaked Guy’s shoulder. The whole building was laughing – a life full of malice. The cloaked person gave himself a final burst of energy. He soon reached a bare room – it only had a filthy but sleek laptop on the floor. It was home of bugs and shadowy creatures. 

He bent over the laptop and soon came to the bright screen, typing complicated commands. He quickly changed the laptop’s interface as he started to work on more files. The footsteps were getting louder. The typing got faster. The footsteps got louder. The typing got faster. The footsteps got louder. The typing got – BAM.

I opened my eyes to the world on 7th April 2008. Since the very beginning, I loved exploring. It was books that fed my curiosity as I delved into the world of spies, astronauts, and wizards. But the one place that grabbed my attention the most was our galaxy. I hope you enjoy reading my articles and poems! Have a look at my blog here.
