Coursework on Revenge

Extracts from this document...


GCSE ENGLISH: Coursework on Revenge 3/01/02 A few years ago, I had a son out of marriage vows. It was an accident. I love my son very much, but his father abandoned me during the pregnancy and immediately moved in and married another girl before our child was even born. Now, though I am only on the fringes of his family, I am still very much a part of it. His mother and I are close. For my own good and the benefit or our son, I have tried to give up my anger and resentment for what this man did to me. His wife, however, hates me with a passion simply because I exist and have what she has wanted for herself - a son, the very image of his father. Over the years, his wife has called me on the phone, taunted me, insulted me, keyed my car, and done her best to out-do me in any arena. ...read more.


The sparks between us grew each time we saw each other, until one evening, I let him kiss me. This has developed into a full-blown affair, sex and all. He calls me desperately wanting to know when he can see me again. Not because he cares for me or enjoys our conversations, but because he wants to get his rocks off and knows where to go. I have stayed sweet, but I remember just what kind of a man he really is. Each time I speak to him, he begs me to never say a word to anyone, so I am telling the world. Decided that being his mistress really isn't much fun for me, and I really wouldn't mind if his wife and family found out. To me, having this affair end was no loss. And I received some diabolical pleasure when I imagined his wife's face when she is told the truth. ...read more.


is having an affair, do you?" She replied with a no, then I asked, "Where do you think he is really going at night when he says he's going for a drink alone?" At this, I could swear the bottom dropped out from beneath her and she just stared at me. I took a sip and looked up at her. I told her that I wanted to end the affair I had began with this man in question but that he just wouldn't leave me alone. The rest of the evening was tense, and we parted early. That was just a week ago, since then I have received two heated phone calls from him, wanting to know what I said to his mother, who, of course, immediately went to his wife and conferred with her on the issue. He is receiving a lot of heat at home, and his wife is talking about leaving him. But the bombshell has yet to come: I saved all his phone messages, which are quite explicit. His mother wants to come visit me this weekend. I think I'll check my messages while she's here. ...read more.
