                                                            NARRATIVE ESSAY

Question : Write your story beginning with " My heart beat frantically as I made my way to the principal’s office "

        My heart beat frantically as I made my way to the principal's office . My mind could not figure out what would be the possible consequences and punishment from the principal.“I am guilty  and there is no way the principal can forgive me”.I told myself. I felt like I was going to be given a very stern punishment.Then I tried to figure out why I was in this mess.
       It story started when my mom gave  birth to a new baby boy in our family . I was in  cloud nine that day as my father told me that I have a new brother . " Wohoo ! " I shouted. I put the phone back to its original place after Ispoke to my dad. I was not really myself that day . I shook hands with all the students in my classroom.I could see they were starring at me with  strange faces.Most of my classmates were baffled initially until I told them about this new brother.Then slowly one by one stood up and congratulated me.So I told them I would persuade my dad to throw a small party over the weekend to celebrate this occasion.Everyone was looking forward to this occasion.In my classroom,I was commonly known as a quiet and shy boy.I didn’t  talk too much unless someone asked me to. But today, after that good news,I completely change myself.I was just like a character of a "wood-pecker" as I made a lot of annoying noises in the class .

Kring ! Kring !.The bell rang and it was  time to go home. I quickly packed all my stuff  into my school bag and ran towards the  main gate with a fantastic speed . I could not  wait to get home to meet my  newborn brother . After five minutes,I felt bored. I walked around the school compund . While walking, I could see something that caught  my eyes.I picked up five bottles of wood-sprayer in various colour which are commonly used by PMR students for their Life Skill''s carpenting projects.Then,I ran to a new building at a compound nearby.The building was almost completed and  most of the classrooms were already used. There was another one room left and the school management wasn’t sure of what should be done to that  empty  room .

Without hesitation, Spurshhhhhhh ... ! I started spraying  at the main door.It reads,“ Welcome to the world of Arts "with a combination of two vivid colours in graffity style.  It  looked  catchy as the backround of the door was lily-white . After I had  sprayed the main door , then  I started to spray the room's wall.It reads, “This place is only for talented ones”.The colour matched the wall and it was done beautifully.Out of the blue,I  heard some clear footsteps.I could guess that footsteps  must be owned by a big size person. My hair stood up and I could feel my heart’s drumbeat. The happiness and excitement  that I had just now  vanished in no time.The steps were coming closer.I slowly sneaked out to identify  who was  the owner of the footsteps.

. Oh gosh! All I could see was  a grumpy tall man cladded with black suit.It was my principal! I tried to find a way out but it was useless.I boosted  my mind as the footsteps became nearer.Aha! then an idea struck my mind. When the door opened, I dashed out.He grabbed  my school shirt to stop me from running away and I quickly closed his eyes with my palms wishing that he couldn’t see me. I was really panicked and my body was trembling.Without hesitation, I pushed  him strongly and he fell down.I ran as fast as a lightning  and luckily my dad was in the car waiting for me.I then realized my name tag fell somewhere.No more thinking,I jumped into dad’s car.

         The next day I went to school as usual and pretended nothing had happenend.Like the usual shy boy that do not talk or entertain to anyone unless someone wanted to say hello, I sat at my place besides Mahaddi,my close friend.I quickly grabbed the assignment on English literature given by Sir Rosdi.I knew that Sir Rosdi was watching me very closely and he suspected that I had a problem to settle.My heart beat faster when my name was called out through the paging system.“ Attention to Fahmi Azan  from 5 Amanah, please report immediately to the  principal’s room right now!” That was the hoarse voice that I heard before. My blood started to flow faster  and I could  feel the andrenaline flowing..All the eyes were straight on me including Sir Rosdi. They were wandering why the principal was making the announcement himself.

.I quickly walked to the principal’s office .As I arrived there I knocked the door politely. “Come in!” .Gulp ! Only God knows how I felt  right now. I slowly opened the door and entered the room.The room was so cool as cool as my body. “Please have a sit”.My principal quipped.After being interoggated for almost half an hour,I felt so calm.I listened attentively and nodded.He told me that he was attracted to my arts and proposed the room that I sprayed being made “The school art’s room.”What a surprise! I smiled and thanked  him. He also proposed an Art’s club and appointed me as the president of the club.I hugged him tightly.He was so shocked but happy with my reactions.

I shook his hands and thanked him for his kindness.I never expect this dramatic event took a 360 degree turn.It wasn’t a mess as I thought initially…..



Write a story begining with:Lina was nervous when the door opened.....

Lina was nervous when the door opened and she heard clearly her name being called.“Cik Haslina,please follow me to the meeting room”.Dato’ Tajul’s secretary,Irena then led the way and told Lina, “You are the last interviewee for today,the fifteenth and I hope this number bring you luck”. “Thank you”,Lina responded without hesitation.
The meeting room was  so cold that Lina could feel her fingers trembled..There were three gentlemen and a lady,all  waiting eagerly to pose as many questions to Lina.Lina was again nervous,she could feel the drumbeat of her heart.Suddenly Dato Tajol broke the silence and said, “We thought of hiring you,your academic and curriculum activities suits our requirement but we need to have your commitment,are you willing to work late and travel overseas”?. Lina promptly answered,“Anything you say Dato”
Lina started her first day work at Mersko Tour and Agency Services wearing a stunning red blouse with a white denim.She looked gorgeous.Dato Tajol told Lina,“Irena will be on 90 days maternity leave and you shall take over her functions from today onwards”.Soon the telephone rang and Lina took the message from Irena’s husband.Indeed Irena had been admitted at Puteri’s Medical Centre at Bandar Baru Kubang Kerian.Months flew by and Lina was already about 4 months at Mersko Tour and Agency Services.Her relationship with Dato Tajol had been extraordinary.It was no more of an employer and an employee relationship.Lina realised this but she was adamant of continuing this relationship although she knew that Dato Tajol’s son,Ikhwan was also interested in her.It would be foolish for a 24years old pretty lass having an affair with a 55years old boss.But Lina could not care less.She saw many malay and korean dramas potraying such story-lines and infact many ended with marriage.So Lina was determined to follow suit.She dreamt of having a comfortable house,loving and caring husband and ofcourse with a few good children.
On Sunday morning at her apartment,an unexpected visitor knocked at her door.Lina refused to open up the door when she saw Ikhwan through the peeping glass of her front entrance door.Ikhwan was furious as Lina was adamant to open the door.Ikhwan left the apartment sinking in his boots. He left a small note at the door.It reads, “My dad is too old for you,he has four of my siblings to take care of. I am your definite choice”.Lina could not believe what she saw and quickly tore the note.She knew Ikhwan would do this to her as he had been trying hard to lure Lina.The 26 years  old Ikhwan was no match to her as Lina wanted a more stable and matured man to lead her life.

Lina remembered on her first date with Ikhwan.He  spoke about his ailing mum.Apparently Ikhwan’s mum is a dutch lady where Dato Tajol met her at London University 27 years ago.She is bed-ridden now after an unexpected stroke  a few years ago.
This is  clearly a first love for Lina and she could imagine the physical sufferings faced by Dato Tajol.She loved Dato Tajol due to his tender and loving care and at the moment Lina felt that nobody could change her opinion on Dato Tajol.Lina stayed whole day indoor.She spent her rest day reading newspaper,magazines and in between she watched cable television.Lina felt asleep on the sofa when suddenly at about midnight she heard a deafening sound.Her guess was  right.It was a familiar sound that she heard before-the sound of an alarm from a car parked at the basement.Then somebody knocked her front door entrance.“Your car alarm system is disturbing other people” her neighbour,Fazleen who just finished her shift work returned and told Lina what she heard..“Thank you Fazleen,I’ll go down and check.”Lina quipped immediately.Lina dashed to the basement and saw a figure  was  meddling with  her new Myvy car.This lovely car, she was specially given by Dato Tajol  on her  birthday..Lina was scared to move nearer until suddenly a loud shot was heard.The bullet went through Lina’s head and promptly she dropped and  laid  motionless.Pool of blood was seen at Lina’s forehead but  Lina was still breathing,slowly.She was dying.Soon a crowd gathered and somebody was seen calling an ambulance and  patrol car.Between the crowd there was a figure unknown walking slowly. He was seen holding a hankerchief weeping quietly and walking away from a crowd.
Meanwhile the crowd had grown to bigger numbers.Within minutes two  patrol cars and an ambulance arrived.Lina’s body was carried onto the ambulance.There were some police officers interviewing the public including Fazleen.Lina’s  black elegant Myvi car was towed to the police station.Fazleen told the police that Ikhwan was at Lina’s apartment 24 hours before she was shot.
At the hospital,Lina was admitted to Intensive Care Unit(ICU).Dato Tajol and his son,Ikhwan were seen loitering at the hospital lobby.Lina’s parents and close families were also present.A few police officers arrived and quickly nabbed Ikhwan and told him to keep silent and asked him to call his lawyer.Ikhwan acted like he knew nothing and maintained that he was innocent.But Ikhwan forgot one vital thing,the short note he wrote to Lina.The police found the notes and it was strewn on the floor outside  Lina’s apartment..The shattered notes were collected by the police with Ikhwan and Lina’s fingerprints all over the papers.Ikhwan was dumbfounded but nobody could help him now not even Dato Tajol.
Lina was pronounced dead  exactly 12 midnight.Gone is a woman who has managed to win Dato Tajol’s heart.But will there be another Lina to continue the lonely life of Dato Tajol....?
