English Creative Writing Task- Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Lennie watched as the Frog bounded between the Lilly pads on the water, he saw the frog’s eyes dart suddenly, as it sensed its prey was near. It sank under the water and let the current pull it down stream and then suddenly it jumped out of the water like a cork comes out of a wine bottle, its eyes gleamed and its tongue darted out of its mouth and in a flash the fly was gone. “That’ll be me in a sec” mumbled Lennie hopelessly. There was a faint buzzing sound then the frog was gone as quickly as it had come. Silence once again fell on the river much to Lennie’s disappointment, he liked not having to think of the mornings happenings.
“I done a bad thing… I done a bad thing”, Lennie continued to mutter as if I a trance. He took off his hat and went down to eat some wild ‘shrooms growing by the stream. Lennie slowly picked up the shroom and placed the tiniest shaving into his mouth; He struggled against the urge to spit it back out but eventually swallowed it. Immediately Lennie’s stomach yelled out in pain and his mouth went dry. His brain was screaming at him for water yet Lennie’s body wasn’t following his orders to move and get some water. “Tis it” Lennie thought, “Looks like I aint gonna get to tend the rabbits anyways” and with one last attempt he tried to move towards the river but just fell head over heels. Lennie looked up at the sky and in his mind he created an image of a rabbit into a cloud” You did it again “stated the rabbit. Where ever you go you always seem to cause trouble, you always fail” and with that Lennie’s eyes flickered then fell towards the ground and Lennie felt himself fall into a deep sleep jut inches from the safety of the river.
Lennie felt a faint tapping on his face he turned over into the dirt, his mind still in a trance, he felt something buzzing in his ear he covered his ears, then suddenly the earth tipped itself upside down and all the water landed on
