Monk Dialog

Extracts from this document...


I was walking to the White Cliffs of Dover and stopped at the point where my mother had jumped off. Nobody had found her body after she had jumped. She had jumped after reading an ancient book of witchcraft. I had always wondered what she had read but I would never know since she took the book with her. Why had she jumped? She was perfectly fine before she went to Portobello Road and bought that stupid book. The family had fallen apart since she had left. My brother John had dropped out of school at sixteen and married some eastern European girl called Nadia. My dad had married an evil woman-who I was sure she was the devil in persona-who was having a go at the family fortune. I saw a ship on the horizon and got a little closer to the edge. The ground fell away at my feet. It was like falling into a bottomless pit. I shut my eyes and thought about my Mom. I could see myself embracing her. I opened my eyes and saw that I was about to hit the jagged rocks. I shouted, 'Mom!' I was preparing myself for my death when suddenly I was sucked into a vortex. It was just like on TV. ...read more.


You see, I only joined the abbey because I can live a king's life! I'm not supposed to have any possessions but now the abbot shares all the money that is supposed to go to charity. I: In the future, people don't take it literally that God made the world in seven days. They interpret it as a small amount of time but not that small. Science has proved that the earth was made by a huge explosion called The Big Bang. People evolved from apes. The evolution of mankind started around 5 million years ago. James: That's stupid! How can a giant explosion make life? Explosions cause death not life! It's like if some sort of witchcraft made the earth. I: In the future people will find out the world is a globe, not flat. James: Now we believe that the earth is flat and it is surrounded by crystal balls moved by angels. That is how the sun moves around the earth. We believe that when we die we go to heaven or hell. There is a place called limbo where we get punished for our sins before going to heaven if we have only committed a few sins. That's where un-baptized babies go. I: How do you and your people travel? ...read more.


You mean you can decide who you want to be your leader? I: Yes. They also have limits on what they can do. Everyone chooses someone and the person that has been chosen the most times wins. Everyone has the right to say and think what he or she wants to without consequences. In fact, a lot of people are not Christian. I myself am not Christian. I believe in evolution and other sciences. James: Really? It's been nice meeting you. There was an ear-to-ear grin on his face. I could tell he was up to something. He had the look that Mr. Mane-my French teacher- had when he had found a way to get me into trouble. I: What do you mean? James: You shouldn't have said all that. ...WITCH!!! I: Why did you shout that? James: You'll see. Just then two-dozen royal guards appeared and the head guard said, "You will be burnt at the stake in an hour!" They dragged me away. Outside an angry mob was waiting. I saw my mom in the crowd and asked her to save me. Someone threw a stone at my head and I passed out. I woke up with a relief that it had been a dream. I lifted my arm to wipe the sweat off my forehead but my arms wouldn't obey me. I opened my eyes and saw I was tied to a stake -my mom tied to one next to me-and the soldiers were lighting it!!!
