Cole Mathews is a boy who is 15 and has been running from the cops for a few years now, well, his whole life. he`s been to jail and robbed more places that i can count in. Cole is sometimes sneaky and definetaly enjoys being a leader, or more correct, a feared ruler. He believes the more people that are afraid of him the better, and he includes animals in that belief.
Cole has blond hair and brown eyes, as well as a know it all look and his pale face. His face is especially pail from all the times he is in jail and robbing dark places. One of those places is Coles most recent robbery, robbing the hardware store of Mineapolis. Not only did he rob it but he completley trashed the place before leaving un-noticed. He remained
un- identified for the majority of a week until he started to brag about it at school. People heard and talked, and, one kid (Deter Driscal), told. Peter went to the police almost imediatly after he heard, except he had to wait till after school ended. He went to the police and explained all he knew.Then the police told him to go home while they investigate, and to everyone's suprise the next day Cole was arrested.
They offered him an alternative option to jail, going to a remote island in the Arctic. He'd go there for a year and potentialy find himself.
Cole is a criminal because being a thief is all he knows. His father beats him and his mother drinks until she passes out, or until she she to starts being abusive. Cole thinks no one accually gets Cole or cares about him.Cole's poroll officer, Garvey, claims that he cares for Cole but Cole doesn't believe him. Cole doesn't believe anybody.
When Cole first gets to the island Garvey tells him, "whatever you do to the animals you do to your self"
On the island Cole meats the spirit bear. The bear is 5 feat tall and has pure white fur, not to mention the intensely in-depth eyes of the bear.When Cole first meats the bear he tries to threaten it. But when Cole attacks its a whole new episode. Cole lunges at the bear but then the bear swipes him out of the air. The bear then proceeds to thoroughly pummel Cole. When the bears finished Cole is left dieing on the damp ground of the forest edge.
Cole lays there for at least 4 days. He, every so often, drifts off to death but it never takes him prisoner. Cole was just seing the beauty of life when death comes at him again
i believe that peter driscul should be given one billion dollars each month for all the the injuries he suffers and the bills that he and his family have to pay now and for ever more. His family will use the money for medical purposes only, including his parents and any siblings. Any medical purposes do apply.
and for a punishment i believe cole should be banished to the island for 2 years then we`ll have another court judgement at the end of the two years to decide further punishment.
The injuries i now have to live with are permanent brain damage and the scared feeling of being ambushed anywhere including my old school, which i do not attend any more because of that feeling. The other things i suffer are being socially awkward and uncomfortable in many situations. I am especially awkward in social situations because i can no longer put together whether people are joking or not. I get bullied by some people who don`t know me and think i am just a kid with a funny face and scars. My Mom insists on somebody being with me every time i leave home, and i now have self confidence problems. When i wake up, i get scared and scream because on the odd night i don`t have a nightmare about what Cole did to me. my Mom is allways tired because, even though she does not admit it, shes up half the night making sure i am ok. I know this because i can hear her foot steps up an down the hall while im half sleep. I am also no longer able to sustain a sound sleep. When i eat breakfast i usually have oatmeal because that the easiest food to eat while i swallow ten pills. I don`t go to school because of the scaredness and i am unable to absorb the knowledge that school provides and cannot remember most off the stuff i do learn. Thank you.
In the book touching spirit bear, there`s a scene when this kid, a 15 teen year old boy named cole, ahs something his porrol officer garvey brings something to cole. What garvey brings in is a whole bunch of ingredients, for a cake, and a cake, but cole doesnt know this yet. Garvey then tells cole to eat a bit of each items on the table. After he ate all of the table items garvey askes what did they taste like and cole said gross. then when thats done, garvey pulls out the cake which includes all of items on the table, then tells cole to eat some of the cake. Cole says that the cake tasted good, and then garvey askes "well what should i have left out." Cole responds "nothing it was good" then garvey points out " you said the ingredients were gross." Then cole said, "not together,stupid."
Any way... in my mind when i read this i figured it was some sort of metaphor, and i am correct. The metaphor is for life. "all the little bits of life are not all good and some are atrocious, but when you put it together is is pretty good."
