中考英语满分作文：Following Your Steps
brother, my dear brother, do you remember it is your birthday today? i am standing in the little forest behind our house, thinking of you.
"sister!" a voice comes into my mind. isn't that yours? you are standing there, leaning against a tall tree and smiling to me. your strong body seems to be taller and stronger than before. "have you finished your homework?" you are asking me. but when i run toward you, you disappear. brother, where are you? brother!
on your last birthday you told me, "ruixue, i'll tell you a piece of good news. i've been enrolled by the army." i was astonished. i didn't understand why you choose to be a soilder. maybe because i had lost my parents, i was afraid of losing my brother. "no!" i objected. "you can go to university after you graduate from high school. we can ask mother's unit to support us." "how can you think that way? we've been brought up by the state these years. now we have grown up. we are in a position to help others and to serve the country," said brother.i had nothing to say. i thought of the aunt meeting me in the rain, thought of my grandma taking care of me when i was ill thought of a lot of people who had given us help. what could i say? i could only looking into your eyes admirably and the tree you were leaning against was in a mass of branches and leaves.
several days later, we parted happily. i never thought this would be the last time that we met. soon after you went, i received your letter in which you told me that you were to go to the front to fight floods. i never thought you would be lying there forever.brother, whenever i close my eyes, i can see you. you are stepping difficultly toward the dam, with a heavy sand bag on your shoulder. i see you push one comrade-in-arms aside. but you are pushed into the flood.
brother, you will never come back! you can never stand in this little forest and ask me. "have you finished your homework?" but you'll live in my heart forever. i'll follow your steps to accomplish the cause that you haven't finished yet.
