A First Experience

Meet Carl Robinson, he is a 13-year-old student at St. Mark's School in North London. He is an only child who lives with his mother and father in a small house near to the school. Carl is a clever student and is seen with a great deal of potential. He is also a popular boy and liked by teachers and many other students. Carl is a very handsome young man as well.

Carl and his mother look at each other in excitement, " The only drawback is that the job is in Leicester."

In an instant Carl ran straight upstairs to his room.

" Shall I go after him?" said Alan.

" What's the matter with you Carol, I thought it's what you always wanted, a fresh start. I mean just the other day you were moaning about this dump, and now…"
