Uncle Abramovich | 19th July 2013
I gave the prisoner-guard a cold-shoulder. I didn't acknowledge the instruction. He advanced towards me with a fierce strut. I gazed up as he stood over my already broken body.
He put his hands on my shoulders and jolted me onto my feet, pushing me out of the door in a rush. This was normal everyday prison life. We strolled down the dirty dank corridor. The steel railings were rusting making it unsafe for us prisoners to walk upon. They didn't care.
He sat me down on a chair in the meeting room and he walked off as I glared at the individual sitting on the other side of the brown table. A long and dramatic pause occurs as he finally noticed me.
"How have you been?" my uncle queried. I stared at him, deep into his brown unprotected eyes.
"I've been fine, Roman" I finally responded emotionless. Uncle looked at the table with a tear in his eye.
"My sister or, your mother, she passed away 4 days ago Gerald..." He began to sober and wailed quietly so the guards couldn't hear him.
My face remained the same, emotionless.
"Why are you here, Roman?" I looked at him as he raised his head. He wiped his eyes and stuttered with words.
"I promised your mum, I wou- would he- help you for when you're released in July next year..", I still couldn't care for what he had prepared.
"I have a job for you, for when you're released" he continued. I folded my arms and lent back on my chair. I looked contempt with him however, my feelings towards this new opportunity were mixed. I didn't even know what it was.
He placed a book on the brown dirty dusty table. He pushed it towards me. It read
"Managing Professional Teams 101". I picked up the book and flicked through, it was interesting to me.
"I promised your passed mother that I would have a better life for you Gerald. I want you to study this book, know it within a year, then you will work for me. Right now, we have this Jose fella. He will be gone by next season, you will take his place. You will be the new manager of Chelsea football club next season..."
