    Luke is a former pupil of mine at Central GS for Boys in Birmingham and remains a good friend and, now, academic/writing/TE2L colleague. He is a natural actor (and, therefore a great teacher – most quality teachers are a bit wacky and thespian); his knowledge of the labyrinths of the English (and Greek) languages is encyclopaedic; he is very funny.
    Luke is a member of ‘The Chums’, a group of 5 former staff and students from CGS in the 1960s (John, Rob, Trev, Luke and myself) who related to each other through English lessons and school plays and who continue to do creative and also very silly things together.

      this film Bella just do&#;es8217nt want to be alone because of the memories of Edward.Vicky wanted to kill him, but a wolve attacked her, so Harry died because of a heart attack.Maybe you’re right, maybe Charlie is deaf *g* But I think he didn’t care about the wolves coming ’cause his best friend got hurt. And yes, the wolves have a weakness for water, because they can’t breathe under it. So vampires could easily kill them.
