Christopher is fifteen years old and has Aspergers’s syndrome. He doesn’t like when people touch him. He has never gone further than the end of the road on his own, but when he saw this terrifying thing, his fear of going further was gone...
It was 7 minutes after midnight, his neighbours dog was lying in the middle of the lawn with a garden fork right through his body. Christopher couldn’t believe it, the dog was dead. He ran over to the dog and hugged him. The dog was still warm and covered with blood. Christopher really liked dogs. He always knew what they wanted because they just had four moods, happy, sad, cross and concentrating. Also, dogs are very faithful and they don't tell lies.
Christopher hugged the dog for five minutes, when suddenly the owner of the dog, Mrs Shears, ran out from the house. She started screaming at Christopher and he got very scared. He put his hands on his ears , closed his eyes and rolled forward till he was hunched up with his forehead pressed onto the grass. Now he couldn't hear her screaming anymore. The grass was wet and cold, Christopher enjoyed it.
He heard some noise coming from the street. He looked up and saw the police coming. He liked the police, they have uniforms and they always do what they are meant to do.
One of the policemen came up to Christopher. He started asking questions about the dog.
And there was one question that Christopher wanted to give a good answer to, but he just couldn't get it out of his mouth. It was the answer to the question ”Why were you holding the dog?” The policeman got impatient and asked forcefully ”Did you kill the dog
Christopher got very stressed and rolled back onto the lawn and pressed his forehead to the ground, but this time he also made a noise called groaning to stop all the sounds from the outside.
Suddenly the policeman took hold of Christophers arm and lifted him onto his feet. Christopher didn’t like when people touched him, and that was when he hit the policeman.
