The Flower Prankster - an incident

Extracts from this document...


The Flower Prankster - an incident It was long past midday and it was nearing the last day of the school half term break. The sun, a full circle and the colour, strangely, a dark shade of orange, peeped over the top of the tall chestnut trees like an anxious child at a window. The shadow it cast gradually slid itself over the rooftops of the small detached houses situated at the top of the hill overlooking the dusty gorge. The shadow eventually moved further out as I stood, five years old, at the glass patio door waiting for my mother to walk through and lift me from the cold floor. 'Stay inside betha, I am just going outside to pick some flowers before your dad gets back from work', my mother advised as the sun shone brightly outside. I was always by my mother's side, 'the protector'. However, today was different as I stood staring outside, waiting eagerly for her to come in and make supper. Curiously, I thought to myself...what if I was to go outside and hide beneath the wall directly behind my mother and then slowly lift my head so as to scare her? ...read more.


My mother ran toward me but by this time it was too late. The small paving stones soon became stained deep red as my blood splashed onto them. I cried with pain as my mother lifted me, muttering the words 'Oh...god please let my son be ok', and immediately took me inside, carrying with her my two reddened white teeth similar to the colour of the wall from which I had fallen. As she entered, I looked back toward my landing spot and cursed it for being there, thinking that if the ground had been softer, I wouldn't have had such a sudden dramatic ending to my prank. Once inside, she took me straight into the kitchen and placed a towel drenched in cold water onto my mouth and held it tightly with one hand, whilst using her other hand to dial a telephone number. 'Rajhi, betha has fallen and both of his teeth have come out...please come home quickly', she said. A quarter of an hour passed and by this time my mother was frantic with worry as she held me in her arms stalking the room from left to right. ...read more.


my father asked, 'She said to wait to see one of the nurses', replied my mother. 'Madam, can you bring him this way please so we can take a look at your son', my mother walked toward the nurse and frantically began to explain how I fell from the wall. 'Madam...madam...I know you are worried but I can assure you we shall do the best for your son', the nurse explained as my mother very carefully placed my helpless body onto the bed and stepped back. My mouth felt sore, as though somebody had placed salt in my mouth. I began to cry and my mother hugged me again. The nurse then explained that nothing was wrong and that only a few stitches would be needed. This brought about a calming in such a tense moment for my parents and myself. A few weeks passed and my wounds began to repair, which brought a sense of relief to me as otherwise, it was increasingly difficult to pronounce particular syllables and letters, without the frequent annoying lisp.
