The Visitor Essay, Research Paper This task on ‘The Visitor’, is a conversation based in the future between the boy and the father (visitor) in the story.? This conversation is a imagination of what I think the father and child would have been talking about if they were to have met ten years later from when they last saw each other.Orlando and his father, Mr Patterson, decided to meet again ten years later from the day they last saw each other.? They both decided to meet in a restaurant ten miles away from Orlando’s home.? ? Mr P: Welcome son, you look so much different from when I last saw you.? Did you find this restaurant ok? Orlando: Yes father, but I have more important things to discuss, I dreamt about you all my life and wondered where you’ve been all this

time.? I only agreed to come today to find out what really happened between you and my mother.? My mother used to get so up set every time I mentioned something about you.? I missed out on so many things that children got taught by their fathers.? I had to watch other fathers teach there own sons how to shave and how to bring up their own families, so why should I forgive you for coming back into my life?? You?re the one who messed up my life in the first place, not mentioning my mother. Mr P: Now calm down son, I’m sorry for not coming back after that day, but I was scared of what you might have done to me if I had done, you’re much bigger now from the last time I saw you, who knows what would have happened.? Plus your mother made it perfectly clear that she didn’t want to

see me again, remember what she said. ?She said ‘I brought him up all these years, I don’t need your help now’.? What was I supposed to do? I dreamt about you as well, but not only from that day when I came to visit, but also from when you were born.? I always dreamt how it would have been if I was a proper father to you, I know I let you down, but please give me another chance to make up to you.? I never left you because I never loved you.? I left because of another reason, which I think you should ask your mother about, I don’t think it would be right coming from me.? Your mother and me argued all the time when we were together, but after I left her, I regretted every minute of it.? Your mother was a nice and pleasant woman and she looked after you as a mother and a

father, which I think is quite special, you’re very lucky to have her. Orlando: Father, why did you come back that day? There was a long silent pause. Mr P: I had to, I couldn’t stop dreaming about you.? I kept wondering what you looked like and how your mother was getting on after all these years, I had to check up on you.? Your mother was so upset from the day I left her, I had to sort it all out.? That?s what we were talking about the day I came to visit before you got called into the room.? I wanted to come and help you, that’s why I offered you that money.? Your mother couldn’t work and look after you at the same time.? I just wanted to come and help you in you financial situation, but your mother thought I was trying to buy you back, which I wasn’t, I just wanted

you to have that money to try and remember me by.? I wished I never came that day, I was horrified of what might have happened. Orlando: No, no, father I’m glad you did come that day.? I always wondered what happened to you, I thought I never had a father.? I thought you were dead or something, I didn’t know that you were living in the same country as us.? I feel good knowing that I got a father to look up to, but I wonder what it could have really been like if you and my mother were still together.? Why don’t you try and get back with my mother, it will be good, we can be a family again. Mr Patterson put each of his hands on the side of Orlando’s face and looked him in the eyes. Mr Patterson had a small tear coming out of his eye running down the side of his face. Mr P:
