Police chief matthew bruce and his wife, carolyn’s son adam, came late into their lives, so they were always very lenient with him and never said no to him for anything. As adam grew older, he began to take his parents, love and concern for granted, as if it were permission for him to do whatever he pleased.
There were certainly times when he was criticized for bad grades or sneaking out of the house, but that was limited to only minor scoldings adam thought that if he pretended to be an ideal son, he would have to face absolutely no issues, not even scolding from his Parents, so he began to act like a good son in front of them, while engaging in all sorts of wrongdoing behind their backs, such as breaking the law. There were several instances when the 17 year old, lad, violated traffic rules since getting his own car for his 17th birthday. However, adam always got away with it.
His father was the town’s police chief. In the worst case scenario, he’d get a fix-it ticket for which he asked his parents for money and got the cheapest repairs, keeping the rest for himself. One day, adam was driving back from a party with his friend freddie. When he began overspeeding freddy warned him to slow down, but adam didn’t, listen, stop being a bore fred! He screamed look at the road.
It’S ours tonight. Adam’S erratic driving, worried freddie who clutched his seat tightly as adam zig zagged between lanes. He asked adam to slow down again and when adam didn’t, he grabbed the steering wheel himself, causing the car to slide off the road and collide with a tree on the side. Darn, it adam grumbled, as he lifted his head from the steering wheel to hell with you, fred get the hell out of my car, i’m driving alone. Man.
Are you insane you’re driving like a maniac? We might have ended up in a much worse situation. If i hadn’t intervened, but we didn’t, if you’re afraid you can just take a cab back home, there isn’t any need before adam could finish his sentence. They heard the siren of a police car behind them before they could flee. The car came to a halt in front of them and a police officer approached them.
I feel like killing you fred. I swear adam grumbled as he lowered his window looks like we have a little problem here guys. The cop said i’ve been following your car for a while now and i’m afraid i have to take you to the station for speeding, not to mention the stench of booze attacking my senses. May i have your driver’s license. First, freddie was scared police station.
What but i didn’t do anything well, whoa, whoa, fred, calm down man adam said calmly. Before facing the officer, he means to say that we didn’t do anything, sir, my friend’s just a little nervous, but don’t worry, there’s no problem. We’Re fine – and i don’t think coming to the station – will be necessary since i’m the police chief matthew, bruce’s son, you see, there’s no problem. Now. Nice trick kid not going to fall for that.
If you don’t have your license, your problem will only get bigger adam smirked. Here’S my driver’s license, sir. He said offering it to the officer as for proof that i’m the police chief son here it is adam, showed his picture with his father. I have many such pictures in my gallery since he’s my dad hope you don’t want to see any more of them. So shall i go sir, the officer’s expression sank and he let adam leave with only a fix-it ticket good night, sir adam chirped, as he drove away.
However, that night, when he went home and carolyn, noticed the car’s condition which bore a dent right in the front. She just lost it. How do you explain it adam? She demanded uh, mom fred and i just got into a little accident. It’S not that big of a deal.
There was an officer too. He let us off with a fix-it ticket and does money grow on trees. You see my phone, she screamed pointing at her old phone. I need a new phone adam, but i’ve been trying to save for months for it, and this is the third time you’ve come home with those tickets, giving you that car was the worst decision, but mom no adam his father cut him off your mother is right. We let you slide the first two times.
Well, you can’t do it again, go to your room right now. You won’t be allowed to drive that car again without her approval. Adam went to his room, but he clearly wasn’t going to listen to his parents. Three nights later, when carolyn and bruce were sleeping adam grabbed the car keys and secretly drove himself to a friend’s birthday party. He was speeding since he was late and as he arrived at an intersection, he didn’t notice the red light or the elderly woman approaching from the side he slammed on the brakes as soon as he saw her, but the car still hit her and she tumbled onto The road damn adam got out of his car and dashed to the woman.
She didn’t appear to be seriously injured and adam was on his way to call an ambulance when a police car patrolling the neighborhood pulled over adam was arrested after the old lady informed them of what had occurred. Adam tried to explain that he was the police chief’s son, but the cops turned a deaf ear to him. They drove him to the station and when adam stepped inside he was surprised to see his father there. He had been called to the station for an urgent case, adam his father stared, at him stunned. What are you doing with your hands?
Cuffed dad i i was just adam – was scared that if he told his father that he’d sneaked out with the car and crashed it he’ll be damn pissed, he stood there speechless and a cop who had brought him. There briefed the police chief after noticing the tension between the father and son, bruce couldn’t believe. Adam was involved in an accident where he’d hit someone he glared at adam then ordered the cops in a stiff voice, bring him to my office. I will handle the case on my own. Adam knew he was in trouble.
He began pleading with his dad that he wasn’t guilty. It wasn’t my fault, dad that woman she didn’t notice the signal i was helping her. I didn’t hit her she’s framing me for no reason. I know what is right. Son bruce said turning around, let’s discuss it in detail in my office.
At this point, adam thought. His father would talk about his case privately to him and he’d get away with it. As he always did, but as he stepped inside his father’s office, the police chief summoned two more officers inside well adam bruce said as he entered the office. If you think you’re gon na get away with this you’re wrong you’re spending the night here in a cell. So hand over your phone and the car keys and, yes, he said preparing to leave, be ready for court.
These officers will take care of you until then adam finally told the truth begging his father to let him go and promised not to repeat the same mistake, but bruce, wouldn’t let him off the hook. This time he wanted his son to go to trial and be issued a hefty fine. They told adam. He would need to earn money himself to pay for the fine and that he’d have to apologize to the older woman too. In the end, adam had to work a part-time job to pay off the fine, and he also volunteered to take care of the old woman on weekends.
It turned out that she had suffered a fracture in her leg because of the accident when adam was finally freed from the fine. He didn’t stop working after working hard for the money. He realized how hard it was to earn and do something independently with his subsequent salaries. He bought a new phone for his mother. He also paid back the money he’d taken for car repairs in the past and promised his parents that he would always obey them.
