Atonement - Ch. 14

--by Abby

More from the life of Briony. She rats out the innocent Robbie to the police and even searches Cecilia's room for his dirty letter, which is then used as evidence against him. Drunk with power, Briony does a reenactment of Robbie and Cecilia's library booty call. Nothing good.

Lola sees a docter, Mr. Tallis' car service breaks down and Cecilia locks herself in her room in anger. The creepy lawn guy is nowhere to be found. Robbie brings back the twins unharmed, but then gets arrested and his mom beats the police car with an umbrella.

Briony continues to misunderstand the workings of the world around her assuming that Cecilia is telling Robbie off just before he's taken away and then forgiving him. I doubt it.

Remember when Brittney Spears beat a photographer's car with an umbrella? Sorry, that was off-topic.

I feel that Britney and Robbie's mom have a lot in common. Like, for instance, their sons will both do hard time in joint.
