Short Story – ‘I’d rather Drown!’

Imagine being given the choice of how you are going to die?  Would you take it?

If someone said jump off a 5 story building or be shot what would you do?

I hope none of us ever find out….

This story is true, about some-one close to me that wasn’t given a choice!

I’d like to mention the fact that this story is not written in what would be regarded as ‘an acceptable style’, showing and not telling the story. As this is based on fact it is told as a narration.


Although I am from Africa I now reside in the U.K. with my family. I started my career as a teacher and have taught children in Primary and Secondary schools. I had a business, teaching computer skills to students of all ages. My company gave me invaluable experience in dealing with a diverse range of cultures. Our entire aim was that we taught our pupils the necessary skills and literacy but that they had fun learning!
