The Shirt

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

THE SHIRT He gives it to his son. ' take care of it as you will take care of me, treat it with respect, if it rips or something it will tell you that I am not well' explains Robbie. Robbie was a strongly built man who was called up for war. He has his collection of awards and medals from previous battles. 'Alright dad, you just take care and come home as soon as possible.' Says his son, Rob. Rob was a clever young lad. H e used to gain top marks in tests and was in the top five cleverest children in his school. There was a sound of a horn and the metallic blue sports car pulled up outside the beautiful front garden. The car almost got onto the nicely cut grass. 'You will be staying with Uncle Harold' explained Rob's father. Uncle Harold was a plump figured ma n who enjoyed his car. He has so much knowledge about cars that he could invent a car encyclopaedia. 'Come on young man, hop in' shouted Uncle Harold. Opening the car boot he placed inside his bag. By now his father had left with a friend who was going with him. Rob sat into the newly polished, leather seated car of his uncle. ...read more.

'I'll play you again' exclaimed Ryan. 'Sure, anytime, any where.' Said Rob. It looked as though the cockiness had transferred from Ryan To Rob. The match was about to get underway when Aunt Marie called 'Come on boys the pizza will be here any minute. Ryan turned off the Playstation and both of them exited the nicely decorated room, to enter into the dining room. There Aunt Marie and Uncle Harold were paying the delivery man for the pizza. They all sat at the table and opened the extra-large box. 'Cheese, tomatoes pepperonis and mushrooms, it doesn't get better than this.' Said Ryan. 'Pepperoni and mushroom pizza, that's dad's favourite, excuse me.' Said Rob sulking as he went to his bedroom. He opened his drawer and took out the shirt that his father had given him. He thought of his father while he was holding the shirt, when suddenly Rob walked in. 'come on, please.' Said Ryan. 'No it is alright you lot eat without me.' Said Rob still sulking. 'Mum's made your favourite sandwiches; cheese and Branson pickle. Said Ryan encouragingly. 'Oh alright then' said Rob. As he entered back into the dining room a plate of sandwiches was awaiting him. After eating the all put their dishes away and Aunt Marie stood up went into the kitchen and started to wash the dishes. ...read more.

Conclusion

He got ready and everybody sat in the car. It was ten minute drive to their grandmothers' house and on the way Rob thought about what his father had said and about the shirt. By now Uncle Harold had parked the car and every body was out of the car and was greeted by their grandmother as she saw them coming so she went to the door. They all came in and sat in the one room that was downstairs in grandmother's house and sat down on the new red leather sofas. The boys went into the massive garden and straight away they started to play football. Meanwhile inside the phone rang and Uncle Harold picked it up. After about two minutes later he got off the phone with the general at the army. He shut the phone. ' I don't know how to say it, they were saying that Robbie is no more and that he had fell down in training and passed away.' Said Uncle Harold. 'I heard it all' screamed Rob. 'Why did this happen to me,' He shouted. 'But now I understand what father was saying, he was telling me that he is the shirt, when I found the shirt ripped I thought that father was dead, but now I am sure he is.' Said Rob crying. ?? ?? ?? ?? MUZAMMAL AKHTAR 10-01 1 ...read more.
