Advertise - "Will you stop that" Michael yelled, his anger showing.

Extracts from this document...


Advertise "Will you stop that" Michael yelled, his anger showing. The children stopped singing and the youngest jumped off the settee. "We were only singing, Dad" Paul, the oldest, said. "What is so bad about singing ?" "Just don't sing along with the adverts" Michael replied bluntly. "You might end up believing them" "Rubbish!" Paul said bluntly. "How can you believe in an advert ?" Michael looked at his children; Paul, the youngest, sat on his favourite chair, and Mark now sitting on the settee, instead of jumping on it, looking quite dismayed at Michael's last comment. "People make you believe them" Michael said. "Just remember, they aren't real" "Mummy used to do that" Mark said, his face brightening. His smile vanished a few seconds later, though, as the grim reality hit him. "before she ..." "Yes; Your Mum did do that." said Michael, stifling a tear. "come on - it is time for bed." "How come you don't like adverts then Dad ?" Paul said, challengingly. "Mum used to do them, why don't you like them ?" "I said it is time for bed" Michael replied. "But Mum let us watch .." Paul trailed off, seeing the look in his fathers eyes. Sulkily, he and his brother climbed the stairs to bed. ...read more.


They had been in America for the past few months, whilst he recovered from Joni's death and set about his new work. They had been away from the country for too long to know what was going to happen. "Do they know what I am doing ?" he said aloud, into the mirror as he shaved. "Do they, God ? Do you know who I am ? Does anyone ?" His voice began to break down to a series of short bursts. "Why did it have to be Joni ? Couldn't you have done something ?" He sat on the toilet and started crying as the lose he had suffered came back to him. "Dad, " Mark said from the door. "Why are you crying ?" Michael didn't look up for a second. Then he picked up a towel and wiped his eyes. "I was just thinking about Joni" he said simply. "We missed you, " Mark said, tears welling in his eyes. "Joni will be OK. God will look after her." But will he ? Michael thought. God didn't stop the lunatic from killing her. Michael got up and gave Mark a hug. "Yes, God will look after her." he said, hoping he could believe that for himself. ...read more.


Michael explained. "This was the first election." "Did you win ?" Asked Mark, not understanding but finding something to which he could relate. "There will be phone call in a few minutes." He said bluntly. "I don't feel like watching Television now" They got up and began to get their breakfast. The phone call had not yet arrived even when they were dressed, though the reporters were beginning to appear outside for an interview, regardless of the outcome. As the sun rose over the horizon Michael began to pace around the room and feel restless. At twenty-five past eight on the eighth of June 1995 a phone call arrived for Michael. The caller said only three words, but Michael knew their meaning immediately. "Hello, Mr President." There was a knock on the door and Paul opened it, not knowing the danger that lay outside. The reporters piled into the room, flashing cameras and shooting questions at him. "How do you feel Mr President ?" "What is it like being the first person to control Australia ?" "Will you keep your promise to ban all adverts ?" Michael put the phone down slowly, and addressed the last question. "Yes, I intend to keep my promise to stop them." he said simply. "Do you think you will be successful in this ? " the reporter asked boldly over the others. "No." Michael said, sighing. "I don't think that even I could stop them" ...read more.

    My head felt sore. I approached the taps and my eyes were glued to the mirror, because I was taken back by what I saw. Although I had hurt my head bad enough to get knocked out, not one...not even one scratch appeared to be on my face or head, this seemed quiet remarkable to me.
