The Journey Home
Samuel Lamar Williams

The Hills and trees begain to rock side by side like it was a mighty wind blowing through as Trevor Day(famous movie director)looked open up the window and seen this as a cold chill came over him. He knew that something somewhere was wrong,but didn`t know what is was. All at once his mind fell on his hometown back in Tylerville Springs,he then begain to remember the life he use to have in Tylerville Springs and how sweet things was back into his childhood. He was different from just about any other child he knew,cause all he ever thought about was making movies and not playing like other kids play. His mind was one great big imagination movie vault that was stored the best movie scenes,action dramas,romance and adventure series that had never been put on film. He begain to think about the way life was way before he thought of making movies,when he begain to cry as he remember his daddy(Mr. Randall Day)and the dreadful day when he seen Mr. Day cry like a baby when Trevor`s mother(Mohogany Day)admitted to him that while he was away on the road she fell in love with his best friend(Malcom Brown)and they had an affair that kepted going on even when he came home. Mr. Day was hurt so bad,cause he knew that it was an fact that Trevor was not his child and that was so heavy on his mind. Trevor then begain to remember how life was after DNA test was done and Malcom was claim as his daddy. He remember Mr. Day started feeling sorry for himself,drinking very heavy and started gambling every chance he got. Things had got so bad that it was so hard for Mr. Day to deal with his problems,so he took an gun and shot himself in the head taking his own life as Malcom and Mrs. Day was in the yard holding each other. All at once Trevor came out of deep thought and heard his wife(Valatina Day)calling him telling him that his sister(Naomi Downs)called a few minutes ago and told her that they need to home right away,cause your mother has been put into the hospital and she is in I.C.U. in very critical condition. They packed a few clothes into their suitcases and left their mansion headed for the airport. They arrived at Tylerville Springs Municipal Airport about three hours later. They rented a car and rushed straight to the hospital after they put their luggage into the trunk of their rented car. Mrs. Day was barely hanging onto her life when Trevor and Valatina arrived at the hospital. Naomi was waiting in the lobby when they arrived at the hospital. She told him that she have told their mother good-bye and that she wanted to see him. He then walked into Mrs. Day`s hospital room and she begain to weep heavily as she seen him walk into the room. He went close to her to comfort her. He sat in a chair close to her and she said unto her,'Trevor! My beloved and second born child! You have made me very proud,but before i close my eyes for the last time I have to let you that I am very sorry for taking the father from you and causing you such great pain my son,so as I lay here on my death bed I ask you to please forgive me for the wrongs I done to you. He looked into her eyes with tears in his eyes and said.'Mother! I love you and I forgive you. You are my mother and will always be my mother. She then looked into his eyes and said,'Son! Good-bye and be good to thy wife,she then closed her eyes and died. Trevor called out for her and she never responded. Valatina and Naomi then rushed into Mrs. Day`s hospital room after they heard Trevor yelled out loud begging Mrs. Day not not to leave him. Several months after Mrs. Day`s death he returned back to the house where he was born to clean up the house and came across papers Mrs. Day have wrote about her life with Mr. Day and the pain she cause him. He kepted on reading it and seen that it was up to him to bring her story to life,so he sat down and worked on the screenplay for the movie he called The Journey Home and hired people from Tylerville Springs to portray the people in Mrs. Day`s story. The movie was the best movie he have ever directed and was the movie that took away the pain. He made an tribrute to Mr. Day by making a video musical in his honor. Trevor now know the ways that the road my lead on the journey home.



"This story needs quite a bit of work though the idea is not altogether bad. It could be made into a much longer piece. You have the plot arc there, 'tragedy of death in past'-'present difficulties (perhaps his job is no longer fulfilling him. He is making movies that don't mean anything to him anymore.) that cause him to think about home' - 'then a tragedy at home which is qualitatively the same' - 'goes home, realizes something important about living and makes a good movie' but the tensions, the characters, the situations all need to be drawn out. Also, your grammar and spelling need improving. For example you sentence splice (use commas incorrectly), spell began as begain, spell kept as kepted etc... I'd suggest reading a book on grammar, or having someone you know proofread. It took me a long time to take that advice to heart; I was horrible at spelling... good luck!" -- Roger.
