An exciting night walk around the campus.
Time: 4 am.
From the deeps of the Hurst forests,
across the Gibbet Hill Road,
down to Piazza, where wierd people were trying to break into their own car,
up to the darkest part of campus – the alley between the rear of the Arts Centre and the Chaplaincy,
down to the computer centre with flashing lights…
Campus is a totally different place at night. Every bush looks evil, every tree reminds you of Freddy or The Final Destination. The few light bulbs only make it scarier. Every single noise makes you want to run and run for your life. The wind pulled my scarf and for a moment I thought I was being attacked. I was dead scared. My back felt hot. I nearly shouted when I saw my own reflection in the windows of the Chaplaincy. On the way back, to avoid the dark kingdom of the Library and Humanities, I chose to walk the long way pass Sports centre. The trees there looked like evil monstors with sharp claws ready to catch me and chew me. There was this scary black cat sitting on the steps of Costcutters enjoying its late diner. It stared at me for ages. I'm sure if it wasn't having diner, it'd eat me! Finally, I gave up pretending to be brave and rang my crazy girlfriend who was still up, too. It's nice to have a friend who would laugh out loud at your fears and be with you until you complete your journey back home.
The only reason I'm writing this down is because I hope I'll laugh when I read this post again later. But I'll be the same scared next time I venture a night tour of campus. I only hope my girlfriend will stay up with me again
