Flight - describe Alice's thoughts throughout the story.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Bhaktipriya Nayan Kapadia Flight- imagine "Flight" is an interesting story, as it shows the relationship between a young girl and her Grandfather. The story creates tension about the way Alice's Grandfather reacts towards, her boyfriend and the thought about Alice getting married. My essay will describe Alice's thoughts throughout the story. I knew I was right to be worried. Mum had said that Grandad would come round but it doesn't look like it to me. I don't want to hurt Grandad, why does he have to react like this? Doesn't he know that he his upsetting me and himself? What is wrong with me having a relationship with Steven? I am eighteen! Iam not the same little, old Alice anymore, why can't he see that? I am not a child, why is he treating me like one? The problem is he still thinks I am a child. He can't see past 'little Alice', he just can't accept I am all grown up. ...read more.

Middle

after all I am eighteen I am not the same old little Alice anymore am I? I am not that little Alice who used to like to just play around all the time like a little child. My Granddad thinks that I am still in my childhood. GOSH!!! Things are just going so wrong at this moment; Steven could arrive any minute now. I hope that Steven doesn't turn up right at this moment because if he does everything is going to be in such a mess. "Da da da da da" Granddad will go and tell mum and she already knows, then even if he doesn't know about everything he will find out. I do not understand that I do not want to hurt granddad, but why dies he keep interfering with my own life. He doesn't even know how it feels to get married. Oh! Steven's here I'd better go. I knew it that Steven will help me to convince granddad. ...read more.

Conclusion

I won't be coming back home and even when I do it won't be the same as before, as I will have to be more mature and I will have more responsibilities. Oh! I will miss my childhood with granddad; all those fun times that I have had with him. Anyway I do have to get on with my life and move on ahead. This story creates tension about the way Alice's grandfather reacts towards her boyfriend and her thought about getting married. I knew that granddad would say the same old things again and again. I thought that showing no expression on my face could improve the situation at that time. I was although very glad that my idea about the pigeon worked quite well. My granddad and Steven are both very important people in my life, so I was glad that I did not have to pick one out of the two of them. I am glad that by the end the situation created came to an end. ...read more.
