A Letter from Edmund Cooper

07 Dec

Messrs Albert and Hadley Cooper.

Dear Sirs,

It has been a lonely house of late. You know I can not wait to be old enough to go off to school like you two rather than having a tutor here at home. I hope you are both applying yourselves to your studies as much as I am here at home, except I hope you are having more of a jolly time at it all. My new tutor, Mr Timmons, is very quick to the cane so I must be very mindful of my behaviour. But a lonely house doesn’t mean a quiet one! Not at all. You said to keep watch and report in so consider this my report.

The arguments, both the hushed ones and the shouted ones finally petered out. They kept their arguments behind closed doors and only shouted at night so I never got the chance to eavesdrop but I did hear one thing which was something about how we couldn’t just get rid of them. A few days later and our scullery maid has been dismissed. I know because Cook was complaining about the lack of help when I was stealing cookies from the kitchen. I’m not sure who else they dismissed but it seems a funny thing to argue about. Father is away on business now and guess what? We have a new scullery maid and she isn’t half as good as the old one. She’s older and when I try to sneak cookies she’ll say “Mr Edmund, it’s only two hours until your supper. Can’t you wait until then?” where as Frankie used to not only turn a blind eye but also saved me the cut off ends from Cook’s baking to feed to the birds. The new one doesn’t do that.

I meant to write such a smashing (do you like that? It is my new word.) letter but I have to go to my lessons soon and it would not do to be late.

With many regards,

Your devoted  and dutiful brother,

Edmund Cooper.

    I know have a theory on what’s happening. Well, two theories. 🙂

        Of course 😀 theory: Frankie’s mother had an affair but it wasn’t realised at first which is why the Coopers had the party to celebrate her birth. When it was realised she was sent away to an orphanage by mr cooper and something science-fictions happened so people didn’t remember her (like the neutraliser flashy thing from MIB) or her existence was covered up. Mr and mrs cooper often argued about the possible affair, which explains the arguments but something to do with picture kept Bobbie remembering her.

        Theory 2: she was the Coopers child but was taken away and used in a science-fictiony experiment thing (I’m thinking time-travel as that would explain a lot). This made the Coopers angry at each other as their daughter was missing, explaining the arguments that were talked anout in the letter. Maybe the forgetting thing did happen and once again the picture kept Bobbie remembering about Frankie even though Frankie herself couldn’t. The man in the space suit could be monitoring the effects of the experiment, whatever it is and the report would be something to do with it.

        Those are my theories so far 😛 one question, are we ever going to find out who the person asking the questions in the prologue was or was he/she/it just a starting point? 🙂

          Yay! 😀 thank you so much! I love reading theories! Yours are really well thought out, though of course you’ll have to wait and see to find out if they’re correct or not!

          Yes, we are going to find out who the person asking the questions in the prologue was and you’ll also learn why they were asking the questions. 😀 It’s all part of the story.
