We sat on a bench with our backs facing each other and began reading our reflections.....
I began reading Adam's letter. He had been the top student in GP-General Paper module. But he too, just like others, got frustrated by the surroundings he was living in. He was consistently humiliated by his dad and Adam had always kept a distance from his dad and his co-stars and relatives. Adam felt so pissed off by the fact that he is not regarded as a member of John Kerry's family and this drove him crazy. His dad did not even bother to take out time for him for John Kerry is career-oriented and not family-oriented, and Adam was the mistake John regretted deeply every single day.
His frustration grew worse, when Hillary, his wife had passed away due to tuberculosis (when Adam was about 15 yrs) Ever since then, John had always vented out his anger on Adam and Adam had always cried in front of his God-whom he always talked to and prayed for his success and strength. Adam had always looked out for newspaper advertisement and the next day Adam struck a lottery. He decided to call Mr Klutz –who published the ad details:-
FRESH FACES WANTED:-AND A JOB ON THE SPOT GUARANTEED
CALL MR KLUTZ 91574163
Adam had called up and agreed on bringing the deposit from his dad's locker while his dad was asleep. The next day, Adam waited for Mr Klutz. He came and shot Adam for a photo shoot and explained details to him about the next week's modeling shoot for the fresh face auditions.
The following week, Adam had been anticipating the arrival of Mr Klutz and his technicians. He missed his GP project's submission for he was too engrossed into researching on modeling. Adam's close friend, James approached him and asked him about the project. James realized that Adam did not do his project and decided to help him for he doesn't want Adam to lag behind. James realized that something was amiss somehow but waited for Adam to disclose the matter to him.
James somehow managed to complete Adam's project and handed in at the night box . James called Adam's mobile and his home but there were no replies. James decided to pay a visit to Adam's place. As soon as he reached there, he saw Adam sneaking out of his home with a black baggage. Adam got scared upon seeing James but James pulled him inside his car. Adam was unable to reveal anything to James as he needed some time to sort out everything. Adam instructed James to reach his house as soon as possible. James made Adam a hot cup of coffee and as he slowly sipped the coffee, Adam disclosed the events which occurred and how he got conned.
James helplessly let out a laugh but soon, he proceeded to ask further about Adam's plans. Adam has decided to defer from his classes for a few months and stay away from his dad. Adam realized that he had erred by secretly opening his dad's safe and giving Mr Klutz $200 and that he will want to earn his own money.
For the remaining three months, Adam had worked in James's uncle's press firm which deals with the order of news publication and journalism. Adam had progressively widened his knowledge further and earned a great deal of money-his own money with his fruitful efforts. In these three months, he had valued money as a precious asset of his life, returning $200 to his dad who had already disowned him to relieve him of his burden and to prevent his reputation from being tarnished.
And after three quick months, Adam is back to further his studies in Mass Communication and work part-time in the press firm.
Adam and I had finished reading our reflections at the same time. Both of us felt really regretful of our attitudes towards each other. A moment of silence united us as friends and soon we began to leave in opposite directions. I had walked away but Adam still held there, until I had vanished from his eyes. And he walked on, thinking of my reflection.
