Little swirls of dust and litter flew round the deserted playground as the warm wind picked up speed and rearranged the debris within the high walls. The school, tired and worn after loyal years of service to the town, looked ready for the imminent holidays. At the appointed time, the loud and unforgiving echoes of the bell signalled its traditional warning before the liberated students poured out of the open doors on all sides of the building. Soon, the frantic cries of girls and boys of various ages filled the stifling air before they gradually diminished and could no longer be heard. There was a painful creak of the door as I opened it and split the silence once more. The familiar comfort of that secure place made me not want to leave the school that day.
