  1. I especially like the metaphor that you used. hurling me back through the Earth’s atmosphere and smashing me onto the cold hard ground.
    I also liked one of the other Similes you used.
    I sprint back to the shop, my legs moving as fast as a bullet. I just wish you used all five of the senses touch, taste, sight, smell and hearing

  2. * It's descriptive
    * I like the part where it says severed with lemonade
    wish: I think you used the metaphor my head is in the clouds to many times ( well twice but you know)
