So I had to write a character piece for my drama course and decided to do this enjoy and tell me how I did please:
I am immortal. I cannot die.
I can jump off a 100 story building and walk away without a brush on my shoulder.
I have been shot, stabbed and set on fire but can live to tell my story.
You ask when the first time was. The first time I died.
We arrived at a camp.
They jumped off the jeeps and aimed their weapons around at men who had been running this place.
It was no mistake I was at this camp. I planned to be here because I knew she was here.
The men I arrived with grabbed the gates opening the camp up and letting these prisoners out. I would call them human beings but these ‘’people’’ were deformed, skin and bone.
I rushed pass the men and began my search. I grabbed each face of these ‘’people’’. I could not find her.
It was like trying to find a needle in a blue stripped and gold starred hay stack.
I reached a canteen they all must have been when we arrived. About to sit down on a chair I was bombarded by one of the soldiers telling me I was needed.
Walking out of the canteen I was met with over a dozen men standing and staring at me. It was like a parade of
As if they knew something I didn’t.
I was led by a young man to a group of the prisoners. These people surrounded each other as they held a person up from the ground. Almost as if they were trying to show them off.
The man led me to the group and the person that they were holding up was her.
It was her.
Skin and bone.
She had a blank expression and looked past me. Only 5 years ago she would look into me.
Only 5 years ago.
I was too late.
The group moved her over to me and I held her in my arms as I kneeled to the floor. She was not breathing. She was dead.
I was too late.
If only I had searched faster.
I placed her on the floor and fell to my knees. The group of the stripped people and the soldiers surrounded me, creating a circle. They went on with their jobs and I stayed there.
I remember that day and only remember that day
It was not only the day she died.
That was the day I died.
But I am immortal, I cannot die. But I can die inside.
