The Betrayal

By Lucien Help, year 6, Vauvert School

I awoke on a cold winter night with snow falling on my face all I could hear were the thunderous German weapons firing. We quickly ran to our positions to fire.
Then Karl was hit and he lay there moaning, “Medic.”
As fast as he could the medic ran to Karl and shouted, “Where does it hurt soldier?” as he hurriedly pulled a bandage from his pocket.
Karl cried, “Just help me Jimmy.”
Jimmy replied, “Don’t worry you’ll be safe.”
All of sudden the bombs fell, missing us and going to the forest.

Meanwhile on the German side.
As we started firing on the English I was beginning to feel like a proper German. I thought I would finally see the lights of tomorrow. I could only imagine how it would feel to be a war hero. We started to throw grenades at the English to back them off of us. There were only a few bullets left in our guns. W thought we would be safe as Hitler would supply more for us. We kept firing at them to keep them down in their trenches. We had no choice as that’s all we could do.

A few days had passed and we were supposed to meet Jake in the forest. As he appeared Karl greeted him and asked for the German information.
But he wouldn’t answer.
Finally said, “I am staying with the Germans.”
Karl was outraged he was waiting for Jake to leave so we could go back. As Karl and Jake continued to talk I went back to the trenches, then all I heard was BANG.
I later found out Karl had turned and shot Jake with a quick jolt. He said that he didn’t know what had come over him and why he did it.
