The story of a troll
Chapter one

A boy sits hunched at a flickering computer screen the curtains drawn an a shaft of light hits his NHS glasses~ he winces as it soft light beams onto his pale skin. For one moment he forgets what its like to feel the sun against his face and laugh amongst his friends..*he sighs* and a small tear forms in the corner of his eye as he remebers what life was once like for him..he brushes it away frantically scared of becoming normal and turns back to the computer screen.

he surfs the web searching whilst he listens to his mum playing with his sister down stairs.. anger wells inside his body and his fingers shake 'why didnt my mother ever love me like my sister' he spits with anger spraying the screen with his putrid wet breath....

then the phone rings, the novelty telephone by his bed with a receiver shaped like an unmentionable part of the male anatomy. The pale boy glances at it, apprehensive. Perhaps it is a salesperson ringing in a desperate attempt to unload a shipload of double glazing to some poor defenceless mug? Perhaps it is his father ringing to say he’ll be late home from work at the local seedy nightclub? Or perhaps, just perhaps the caller is actually an individual from the outside world who has finally noticed his existence? He staggers from his chair; a perfect imprint of his rear end remains embedded in the seat. He stumbles, head bent, his body still arched in its familiar ‘web-surfing’ position, through the numerous tomato-stained pizza boxes, through the piles of trashy comics and magazines that have accumulated in uneven piles across the moth eaten carpet that horrifies his mother to the extent that she dares not enter the room…and finally over the scrunched up lists of the websites that he so passionately detests, the websites filled with people who actually have lives…

He reaches the phone, pale and bony fingers to the receiver and then, slowly, hesitantly, he lifts it to his ear… “Hello I wonder if you’ve heard of our latest offer? We can give you double glazing at prices that….” He throws down the receiver in anguish and emits a long drawn out high pitched shreak, flailing his scrawny trolling arms wildly around... and then slowly he recedes back into the meaningless existence he so pitifully indulges in…

...Then the poor and spotty boy turns around wanting to go back to his best and only friend the computer, but as he does so he stumble upon some old forgotten advertising circulars lying on the floor in all the other mess. On the front page is a sunny beach. “Oh, to be in Hawaii” the boy thinks with half-naked girls in grass skirts. He glances in his empty wallet and watch the moth flicker in the light from the lone light bulb in his room. No, he has again forgotten that he wouldn't be able to travel, because broadband, bit and byte have consumed all he has.
Then suddenly, he gets a brainwave he will go to the nice travel site he knows of, here he can speak with people of an equal mind, longing to travel. But as he again sits in his usual position in front of the screen, he gets overwhelmed by how real people who visit this site are, so full of life and so eager to learn more about new things. His spirit is lightened his mood rises and he lift his fingers to write his first message, but alas, he cannot figure out to write, he gets scared, depressed and angry with all this people who can express their thoughts, feelings and dreams so well, therefore his first message is "Hi I am a self-confessed troll and nothing else. I will destroy this boring site and Mr Plain is so dumb"...

I am just reading 'Himalaya' at the moment and got to the part where Michael was introduced as a special guest at the Gaiety Theatre in Shimla as Mr Michael Plain. I forgot about that from the TV series!

Chapter two

The boy is now very satisfied with himself. He has found out that he actually is good at something – provoking other people and he simply loves to get people to react on his posts. It really, really gives him a kick to see how angry or hurt people can be and it teases him to take the provocations even further.
Uplifted he goes to bed with an evil grin on his face dreaming that he one day will concur the entire internet and become the most evil vicious troll of them all, the master troll. When that happens he will – of course – be idolized as a mighty man and people will seek to please him, because they fear his fury. He will then start teaching other trolls how to be nasty, evil and cruel and he will, the boy dreams, make – a master race...

In fact he will become so famous that chat show hosts will start inviting him on their shows. He dreams of confronting Jonathan Ross and the 5 poofs and a piano on his show and abusing them all roundly, and hopes it will be the same show as Michael Palin to add particular insult to injury.
In his dream though to his horror Jonathan Ross turns into a Dalek being chased through the streets by Jack Bauer on 24, and the troll is being launched in a missile to destroy the Big Brother house!!
Sweating he wakes in terror and realises that he should get out more. Too much trolling on the net and too much late night TV is taking its toll.
