Creative Work Based on 'The Necklace'

Extracts from this document...


Creative Work Based on 'The Necklace' They hadn't a care in the world. Madly in love, both as crazy about the other just as a dog is with its food. The two of them worked five days a week, she, lazily, in a road tax booth and he was a doctor in palaeontology at Stanford University, it was he who made the majority of the earnings. Both newlyweds, just back from their exotic honeymoon in Barbados, they were relaxing at home the day before they had to go back to work. She sat me down; I knew this was going to be an awkward conversation. "Lee", she said softly, "How do you feel about children?" Suddenly, I relived the exact same feelings I experienced when at the altar, "I don't know Jean", I answered. I had absolutely no idea where this had come from, "Why, what about you?" "Well, I think we should try for a baby." she told, this was it, I had always wanted a child, ever since I could remember, a little baby boy. "Jean, this is wonderful!" Then she burst into tears and gave me a hug, and I told her how much I've always wanted a child. ...read more.


Just when we ended the conversation the nurse came back in and handed the baby to me - maybe because she was now quite afraid of Jean. But it was the first time I had held him. I didn't know what to say. He was just so small. I held him close to me and supported his head and smiled, he just closed his eyes. Then I handed him to Jean. When she had hold of him, I put my finger in between his hand and he clenched his fist. "It's instinct that he does that." Doctor Prachid explained. So four days later Jean was allowed to come home. "Lee, we haven't thought of any names for him yet." "I know, what do you think?" "I don't know, we've done everything except pick a name for him." "I'll like whatever you want," I said willingly. "I really don't know Lee!" So the baby just went on as 'Baby'. We put the baby in his cradle and there he rested for the whole night. Not a sound was heard from him. I couldn't believe how heavy a sleeper he was. ...read more.


The funeral was just two days away. Jean's parents were going to plan it. I didn't even know if I was going to attend it. "There's no point," I thought to myself. I switched on the television and witness a baby being born on 'ER' and burst into tears. I got up and smashed the TV against the wall. I just had to take my anger out on something. I thought about the saying 'every cloud has a silver lining' but what good could come out of your wife and child dying? Then I thought, "Jean and Baby are in a better place, where no one can harm them, they can always be happy now and they're just waiting for me so we can all be a happy family again!" Following this, Lee helped with the wake and funeral for his wife and child. But sadness was all that was in his heart. Blaming nobody but himself for his wife's death, as he told her to go down and call the ambulance, he had nowhere to go. Nobody to love. Now he has developed an alcohol addiction, and has been dismissed from work for good. Philip Lee 11Y ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 ...read more.
