Your mother was very good friends with Mr. Shears.
Christopher finds out his mother is alive and that his father killed Wellington
I did it Christopher, I killed Wellington.
"It was 7 minutes after midnight. The dog was lying on the grass in the middle of the lawn in front of Mrs. Shears' house."
Christopher ran away to Mother's house in fear
I hope Mother comes home soon
YOU TOLD HIM I WAS DEAD!!!!!!!!!
"...and said, 'Do you mean that they were doing sex?' And Mrs. Alexander said, 'Yes, Christopher. That is what I mean.'"
He's my f***ing son in case you've forgotten
"I did it for your good, Christopher. Honestly. I did. I never meant to lie. I just thought... I just thought it was better if you didn't know...that...that...I didn't mean to...I was going to show them to you when you were older."
Do you forgive me Christopher?
"So I decided to wait and I hoped that Mother was not on holiday because that would mean she could be away for more than a whole week."
"And then I woke up because there were people shouting the flat and it was 2:31 a.m."
