I am dyslexic so give me break please, i have never wrote a story before so please give it a read and tell me what you think, and yes if anyone makes the connection this is based very loosely on the Chicago code. I know it is very badly puncuated sorry!


Silence, was all I heard the moment I woke up. The peacefulness of the silence was comforting, I wanted to absorb every minute of it I could. As today was my first day as super intendant, the first female super intendant in Chicago.

I was eventually ready to leave, I left the house turned the key in the door, then suddenly i had that feeling t when you forget something, I brushed it off telling myself it’s just nerves. I got to my car pressed the ‘open’ button on the keys then I remembered my gun! How could I forget my gun? Which cop forgets their gun? Then I thought I’m the new super intendant of Chicago how to day goes it up to me.

I got my gun from the bottom of my sock draw, then got my amumision from my bed side table then checked I still had my car keys and put everything in my bag. Then I steddyed myself, walked down stairs closed the door behind me, checked it was locked then walked to my car. I got in my car switched my radio on to 101.9 FM, it was at this moment when the radio said ‘’top head line body found in garbage bin’’ it was at this moment I decided I would do my first check in.

I rang through to control to ask for the details as the person picked up the phone they said '‘good morning super intendant'' I had never really seemed real until this point. I got the details put them in to the satnav and drove, I was doing better today only 23 people were in my opinion slipping through net and could have been arrested on the 40 minute drive to the crime scene which I didn’t know the name of as I am still getting used to Chicago, having never lived here before.

I arrived at the crime scene it was too sunny for me so down when my shades. I got out my car took the gun from my bag once I found it and placed it in my holder. I felt it click in to the holder it felt like everyone could hear it because at that moment everyone looked round, it felt like I was on a dark stage and the spot light had just been placed on me.

I walked over to the body that had been wrapped in bin bags and sealed with sliver tape, not the most common way to dispose of a body I thought. I looked at the face it hit me then that Callum hadn’t been home in a few days I asked if they had an ID for the john doe and then at that moment my world came crashing down in front of me as senor deceive Jones said the word that were like a fatal blow to my heart ‘’yes the john doe is Callum Doyal.’’ At this stage I didn’t know what to do apart from say Cullum’s name over and over again in my head, nobody knew we were together.

RANT! many applogies!

This blog post has not title as I do not know what to give it…

When I was little I was assessed for Dyslexia and they said I was not phonically aware so I thought nothing of it I was about 4 when I was assessed, so I went through the infants and secondary and got some help but the problems started when I went to my secondary school.

When I was going into year 7 my dad had a meeting with the coordinator for spelling problems and stuff and she said I would need help and I would get it and I got no help at all!

Now I am in year 10 I have been using a Crossbow Reading ruler science I was about 6 and I asked would I be able to use it in an exam and I was told you better check with the coordinator so I did and she said it was fine and this is where I am quite annoyed SHE DID NOT EVEN KNOW I HAD ANY SPELLING PROBLEMS so she asked if I wanted testing again so I got tested and my reading, spelling and comprehension.

The average for my ages is 85%

The reading there was 5 sections and I skipped at least 3 and that came back 98% out of 100 HOW???

The spelling was the first 20 most common words and spelt at least 6 wrong and that came back at 85% HOW??? I can remember I spelt circle and reach like this cricel and rech that’s not normal is it?

The comprehension I must of got about 10ish wrong out of 40 and that came back at about 87% how is that normal?

So I decided to do some digging on the internet and I found Dyslexia Action and I got a few leaflets one of the leaflets has a check list that is as follows:

1. Is your child bright in some subject and has a block in others?

2. Are they a slow reader?

3. Does anyone in the family have a similar problem?

4. Do they have difficulty following a list?

5. Were they a late talker?

6. Do they have problems with spelling?

7. Poor handwriting?

8. Put figures or letters the wrong way round?

9. Difficulty understanding time and tense?

10. Do they get left and right confused?

11. Do they answer questions orally and then have problems righting them down?

12. Poor sense of rhyme?

13. Do they have difficulty taking notes or copying from the board?

And 1,2,3,4,6,8,10,11,13 all apply to me and my school think there is nothing wrong me at all?

Right sorry rant over had a bad week!
