The Leech Trek

The way the leeches tortured all of us was horrible..... A genre of GREAT ADVENTURE, also the CHILD'S VIEW with little details will show it to you.



The Leech Trek. The trek which was the most horrifying, disgusting and scary trek for every single one in Yr 9. We went through the tracks, into the deep green jungle, making a few leech friends. These leech friends were soooo disgusting. For me, one of them crawled up to on my chest. First we were really scared. I did not touch even a single grey rock. I was scarred. Would one of those grey rocks covered with small green grass might have a leech!!! We went over 2 bridges and into the deep jungle starting our so-called “fun” trek.


We were walking on wet, sandy, brown-black mud. It was so gross. I got 2 thin, black stretchy leeches on my shoe. I almost burst out into tears. Luckily an instructor to my left, wearing a light cream coloured t-shirt and a brown pant, came to the rescue!! He removed the brown, stubborn leech. I was so relieved when the first leech came of. Then to my surprise, there was another one on my shoe!! I was scared. This time I was far too scared to even muster up courage to look at it the second time. Then I kept on moving through the dense jungle full of noisy chirping birds. Suddenly, the leech was gone. I saw it somewhere in my shoe. Then while I was walking really fast, the leech just flew off me.

The worst fact about leeches are that you don’t even know that they are sucking your red blood from the parts of our body. I was at a point of time shocked. My friend, Yu who is very gentle in nature and also calm, she got a leech bite on her belly button, right in the middle.

On the other hand, one of the instructor, he was tall, and brave, got a leech on him and was not scared!! I was sooo in shock and surprised that how is he not scared. Then I remembered, that he is used to all these insect and muddy situations.


You won’t believe me, in Malaysia, I noticed that I got 4 horrifying leech bites but when I came back to my home sweet home, I noticed that I had got 6 horrifying leech bites.

I had 2 on my right leg, one huge, and one small, right next to my right knee on the right side. 2 really small ones on my left leg near my left knee on the right side of the knee. 2 on the chest. Same situation. One big and one small. Both on the right side of my chest.

Before heading back to the houseboat, we had another small rest at a rest place. It looked as if it was made by wood where over there people saw all their leech bites oozing with a lot of red blood. People started crying. Many people got leeches inside their shoes. Some on the the shoe soles some of the top, hanging, looking for blood.
That was the rest place:

The way it looks for blood is really interesting. From the end with its hundreds and thousands of teeth, it bites into the body. And with the other end, it tries to find blood to suck better and ever crawls in the same way. It is a really interesting way.
