The prompt this week was to use the words: …it is heavier than I expected…
Packing my belongings into boxes is the most BORING job in the entire world. Especially if you don’t want to move halfway around the world.
I am feeling a mix of emotions. I’m sad because I have to leave everything behind, but I am also very happy to be able to have a different experience.
I put the sticky tape on the last box, YES I’m done! I look around my room, whoops I forgot to pack my trophy.
I go and put it into one of my brothers boxes. It is heavier than I expected, I think to myself.
Click… click… click.
The lock was slowly turning, how?
Everything goes blank.
Next minute I see my parents lifeless bodies, right in front of me.
I kneel next to my mother, picking up her head. Her mouth was lolling open, I couldn’t bear the thought, I just couldn’t!
I clench my eyes shut, but my eyes are leaking with tears.
Then everything stopped and I find myself sitting in a room with two other people, a man, and a woman.
I realise why I’m here, I realise why I had that flashback.
I’m in an orphanage, I’m getting new parents.

Review on the The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a musical that was written in 1973 and released as a movie in 1975 by Richard O’Brien who was born as Richard Smith on 25 March 1942. Richard O’Brien now lives in New Zealand – he played Riff Raff in the original movie.
It is an awesome sci-fi musical about an alien called Frank N Furter. Him and his servants live in a big mansion in the middle of nowhere.
Two normal people called Brad and Janet decide to visit an old teacher from Denton High called Dr Everett Scott. They miss a corner and find themselves at a dead end. They try to reverse but end up with a flat tyre. They are left with no choice but to enter the old mansion which reveals the horrors within
The reason I like the Rocky Horror Picture Show because it is humorous, weird, funny AND MAD. I also went to the Hollywood theatre in Sumner, Christchurch to watch this movie in a sing along version. You had all these things like when it was raining in the film you were given newspaper and Frank N Furter would squirt everyone with a little plastic watergun.
Some of the characters are:
Brad Majors – Barry Bostwick
Janet Wyce – Susan Sarandon
Frank N Furter – Tim Curry
Riff-Raff – Richard O’Brien
Columbia – Little Nell
Magenta – Patricia Quinn
Some of the songs are:
There’s a Light
The Time Warp
In conclusion, I highly recommend you to watch this and GIVE YOURSELF OVER TO ABSOLUTE PLEASURE!
