The Pearls of Primrose Hill - Folder Piece - From the point of view of the boy

Extracts from this document...


Jamie Pender The Pearls of Primrose Hill - Folder Piece (1) From the point of view of the boy I knew I'd had too much to drink that night, but I didn't care. I saw a bike just sitting there; it seemed a waste for a perfectly good bike not to be used. Although my vision and thinking patterns were blurred, the idea then came to me. Perhaps if I took this bike for a little ride, and then return it back later on in mint condition, no one need ever know. I knew that stealing something as expensive as a motorbike would be the wrong thing to do, but it wasn't as if my mother cared. Besides, I'm a good driver, it's not as if I'm going to cause an accident. And so, I stole the bike. ...read more.


I saw the blood dripping frantically from my mouth; as I began to crawl out of the forest at Primrose Hill, wondering if anyone would even care about what had happened to me tonight. My brain was still under the influence of alcohol but as I was slowly crawling my way out of the trees, I began to realize the severity of all that I had just done, despite knowing my mother probably wouldn't even care. (2) From the point of view of the mother I couldn't stay still. I kept on getting up and wandering about as the night passed; such was the extent of worry about where my son could be at this time. I knew that he hadn't been happy recently, but rarely was he not back home by this time, this was completely out of character. ...read more.


And so, I went to search the hill. I felt like the incident alone had aged me overnight, and I didn't realize how bad the conditions on the hill would be. I had to crawl through dogshit grass to look for my son's own teeth, for a son who showed little if any care for me. Indeed, the only thing he did show towards me was disrespect, but I thought that if I endured this degrading and humiliating act, that things might change, that we could have a true mother-son relationship based on trust and care rather than cruelness and neglect. The probability of finding the teeth was no more than the probability of finding a few needles in a haystack. If I could find the teeth it would mean so much to me, but all I could cling on to was the hope of finding them. I cared so much for him as any mother would for any son, hence why I continued to examine Primrose Hill. ...read more.
