Girl

This is the best school in the country darling

Your father had to pull a lot of favours in for this one

Now be a good girl and don’t cry

Most mum’s let their kids go when they’re eighteen, why is mine doing this  when I’m only nine?

If we don’t run the business we can’t keep your horses and all the lovely things you have

Royalty attends this school, so I hope you will not be rebellious and cause any drama, its high time you grew up

All this emotional nonsense, I went to boarding school and so did my mother, it’s a sign of good breeding

Now stop all this upset nonsense and I’ll see you at Christmas, the summer will be full of activities for you

Yes Mummy, I’ll stop being silly, you go, you don’t want to miss your flight and upset Daddy.

  1. This is so sad!
    “Most mum’s let their kids go when they’re eighteen, why is mine doing this when I’m only nine?”
    You portrayed how the girl is basically emotionally blackmailed into being made to feel like it is HER that is being unreasonable really well.
    Well done! 🙂

  2. The ‘victim’s’ sense of helplessness is quite obvious. One can see all the old arguments encapsulating the perspective of a class.
