Creative Writing - Dear Mrs Robinson.....

Extracts from this document...


Creative Writing. Dear Mrs Robinson, I know that I'm the last person you would want to hear from right now and that I've brought nothing but despair and unhappiness to you and your family, however I would like to try to explain to you what happened all those years ago. Tom was a kind and generous man who did many favours for me around the house before he went home after work. At first it was just the simple odd job but after a few times, I got used to seeing him. I didn't really like black people back then but some how he seemed different. I'd grown fond of him and his generosity. I respected him. I liked him. I thought, maybe I was in love with him. I needed his love and attention. I thought that maybe because he always did jobs for me, he might have felt the same. That is why I pretended I needed a job doing that day; I just wanted to know if he felt the same way. ...read more.


So he got up and called the sheriff, and that's when the whole story started. When the sheriff came over I was forced to lie, if I didn't I would have got hurt even more. So I went along with the story, in a way I kind of wanted him to be punished because he didn't feel the same way that I felt. I honestly didn't want him to die; I didn't even think he would go to prison. When I saw your face in court I couldn't believe what I was doing and what I was putting you and Mr Robinson and the rest of you family through. But when I saw Tom, I just couldn't handle it anymore. When my father got up all he said was lies and it was breaking me apart especially when I knew I couldn't do anything about it. I felt so guilty. When Tom spoke in court I couldn't even look at him, to know that he telling the truth and not one member of the jury believed him was giving me much more pain then I ever felt when my father beat me. ...read more.


Even though I have no family anywhere else, I had to move as far away from this town as possible. Alabama will always be a constant reminder of my horrible past. After all these years, what I caused for you and your family didn't seem to go away. I thought that just because I was in a different town, I could forget about what happened. It kept annoying me; I had to get this off my chest because moving to the town I am in now is just making things worst. That is why I'm writing to you this letter, to get it off my chest and in a way it might answer a few questions that never got answered all those years ago. I'm so sorry that my greed ended up in the loss of your husband and once again I am that you will some day find it in your heart to forgive me. Thank you for taking your time to read this letter after so long. I know how difficult it must be for you to hear this. Once again, thank you. Mayella Ewell Bola Awosoji ...read more.
