Just practising for my English Language exam..
Alan’s bed made a sharp, creaking noise as he rose from it. He stepped on the wooden floor which made another annoying noise. Alan tried registering his changed habitat, that smelled of rust and contagion. Thick, velvet curtains draped down his wall, torn but yet magnificent as if it faced the wrath of a thousand cats, survived, and now shines on to tell the tale. A broken tube-light shot jolts of electricity, persistently trying to light up; failing miserably, only to make buzzing sounds that Alan finally decided to switch off.
Dragging his feet, he slowly made his way to the window. Of course, now it was much less of a window and just a wide gaping hole in the wall. All the shattered glass spread across his floor cut and bruised Alan’s feet, but the recent events had made him hard as a stone. Reluctantly, Alan peered out of his window.
Mangled corpses lay across the cinder streets. Skyscrapers were now trash on the ground, a pile of rubble and dust. The iron pillars had all melted, owing to the fire. Suddenly, the smell of rust behind in his cottage seemed more pleasant, the sight of curtains heart-warming. For what lay in front of Alan was a scene of immense destruction, barbarism to its finest extent.
A lot of my friends have had trouble getting jobs right out of college. It’s a big world out there, with educated and talented people all looking for work. There aren’t a lot of vacancies, and traveling around for work is no longer an exception to the rule. They’re all frustrated, and feeling like there’s nothing they can do to help themselves.
And so they make crafts.
Where can I learn how to make an armless bunny?
“Harry Potter? That weird kid with the glasses? The one who waves that stick around, shouting random stuff? The one who easily wins against the Dark Lord so easily?”
“Weird kid with the glasses? Dude, he’s a wizard. Waving a stick, shouting random stuff? He’s using a wand and casting spells. Wins so easily? Are you kidding me? The Dark Lord was defeated after numerous sacrifices and deaths. Ha, what do you, a person who has never experienced the amazing magic, know about the world of Harry Potter?”
Honestly, I pity the folks who have not been enchanted by Ms. Rowling’s beautiful world of witchcraft and wizardry.
I know it’s been several months since the last film came out. And 5 years since the book was released. But the magic lives on, through the fans, through Pottermore, through the Facebook pages and through fanfiction.
The magic shall never die.
No Woman, No Cry
