1215 words - 5 pages

A dimly lit room in north London, the near futureEarl (28) lives with his twin sister, Rebecca. Although both adults, they regress and behave like children: it is as if the clock stopped for them when they were ten years old. They are like children in a fairy tale: their innocence threatened by an evil world. Earl and Rebecca's mother mysteriously "disappeared" about ten years ago. He has no recollection of his father. The pair have been in their own fantasy world ever since. They depend on each other for numerous reasons. However, Earl is the more dominant force. He, for example, controls Rebecca's medication. This means that he subdues her greatly. He wears dirty pyjamas, vest, frayed cardigan and slippers. He is unshaven; hair unevenly hacked short; teeth discoloured; skin pale; and has heavy dark rings beneath bloodshot eyes. He is obsessed with the macabre. He acts as an historian, relaying events of their childhood to his sister. In this speech he recalls the one and only time he did something "bad".Earl. Well, I once had a spider. [Pause] You didn't 'cos you're a girl and girls don't like spiders [pause]. I saved up for months [he laughs]. Didn't buy a thing! No comics, no sweets, no...no...nothing! I got all my pocket money and put it into my pocket and then went into town, by myself. You remember Mr. Brown's pet shop?...Well, I went in there and brought a big spider: a...a...er...a tara-antulla, no...a tarantula. I put it in my pocket and left. It was massive. When I got home I played with it. It was big and hairy and had eight long gangly legs that rippled like it was being blown in the wind when I picked it up. I was scared but I still had to hold it. It was mine. And then...then I realised. I realised that I could never keep it. Not as a pet. Where would it sleep? What would it eat? Where would it go when I got up and went to school? It was a stupid thing to buy. I had wasted my money on it. So, there was nothing for it. It had to go. I had to get rid of it.I had to get rid of it! But how? All sorts of things occurred to me...bury it in the back garden; throw it off the roof of the tall tower blocks behind the swimming pool; flush it down the toilet and let it live in the sewers? But all the while another idea was forming in my mind. Something so good that I knew it could never come back. A thought so wonderful it seemed like the only thing that I could do. When no one was home I went into the kitchen and got down the big frying pan. It was very heavy and I had to carry it with both hands. And I put it on the gas stove. I put some butter into the pan and turned the gas up to full. The fat started to steam and smoke. It rushed around the pan like liquid gold. Crackle. The smell of butter filled the room. [He laughs again][Quietly] Then I put the spider into the pan too. It ran around and around the edge of the pan, trying to get away from the heat below. Its hair started to pop out. The butter in the pan mixed with the hair and it went...
