The Wall. (Part two) By CpSingleton (c) 2014


Maria’s son never went out and always had a glib, insensitive reply for anything she threw at him and yet, she was met with a heavy silence.
Still nothing was returned.
She ripped off her jacket with disgust and frustration and bounded up the cheap hessian weave, not stopping to knock on his bedroom door.
She was primed for an argument. As far as she was concerned etiquette could go screw itself.
The mess that he called a bedroom showed no sign of him. The tele was on and was showing a picture of the heads of George Clooney, Ewan Mcgregor, Kevin Spacey, Jeff Bridges and a goat.
‘Who watches this rubbish?’ She asked out loud and switched it off. ‘Colin! Are you in the bathroom, you idiot?!’
She made out a muffled sob, but couldn’t be certain if it had come from the bathroom or downstairs.
She swept out of her son’s bedroom and down the narrow, short landing, before stopping to bang heftily on the fragile plywood door.
‘I’m coming in if you don’t answer, young man,’ she called when no reply was forthcoming.
Again she heard the muffled sob.
The hot anger flooding her veins swiftly turned to cold panic.
‘Colin? Are you okay?’ She called as she threw open the bathroom door.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.

  3. No, but someone called Elizabeth R sent a telegram stating that she’d lost one.
