The Evil Cometh.
by Gordon Weare
(New Zealand (Ex of No 17 Pencraig, Llangefni, Anglesey))
Me in Alaska with my brother, Andrew, who took the pic.
There it stood. Anually, in the corner of the school yard. It struck terror into our hearts - the White Dentist Caravan!
Our class comrades' name would be announced as... Next!
On return, clutching a bloody, white cloth, saying nothing, would raise a finger or two, indicating - how many teeth had been taken? - followed by the dreaded finger pointing at YOU!
The menacing rumour was THE PIN
. "Did you get it? So & so did."
What was this pin? At playtime I could hear moaning coming from 'that'
caravan. I peeped in as the door was open - must have been a nice day - and I could see two women in white and the top of a head in that chair ...
Could this be the pin? Robert H was 'in the chair'. Even my girl friend Janice S, came back vandalised.
Then horror of horrors, the finger was pointed at me! I had a loose tooth, too. I was determined that they would not have it.
I stood on the school steps (where Sian used to ring the bell - and thats another story ) - and swinging my fist, I punched my tooth out, put it in my pocket.
"Have you just taken a tooth out?" asked the Wampire. "No, not me, don't know anything."
Eventually, my parents declared I would see a private dentist. So my dread of that mobile, white chamber, was off my list with great relief forever.
I remember that van in Llangefni Secondary School. Worse still, I recently found out that the dentist was a mate of my Dad's.
Never had a tooth taken out ... Thankfully. But spent the rest of the day spitting out the pink powder and being astonished at how smooth my teeth were.
Is the amulet significant?
