"Charles" by Shirley Jackson
Did you hear what Charles did at school today?
Nice to meet you I am Laurie's mother. I wanted to speak to you about Charles.
Charles? We don't have a Charles.
When Laurie first tells his parents about Charles in his class. (Jackson p.s22)
When Laurie's mother goes to the pta meeting to talk to Laurie's teacher about Charles. (Jackson p.s27)
This scene is ironic because Laurie's mother thought that there was a Charles and there really wasn't and the Charles Laurie was talking about was himself. (Jackson p.s27)
