When she tells me that my father isn't coming home I’ll believe it. As long as she says Father is coming home, the I’ll believe that”(15). Meg is clearly offended when the principal told her to face the facts. The narrator stated, “one of the boys had said something about her dumb baby brother. At this she’d thrown the books on the side of the road and tackled him with every ounce of strength she had”(1).
This scared her so much that it made her feet jump up, as one can imagine this shocked everyone; especially Pitty Sing. Pitty Sing jumps out of the basket and makes Bailey wreck. Thankfully everyone survived the wreck only with minor injuries. However, the grandmother brought Pitty Sing, and she knew she was not supposed too. So, the wreck is all her fault.
“Will I have to go to the doctor?” I asked my mom. “No,” said my dad as my mom nodded. I took off the ice, my arm was numb! I looked closely and saw through the black and blue bruise, the stitches from the softball. My dad popped in and said, ”that was a pretty hard hit of your arms like that.” I started to laugh.
It had been a horrible car ride I was thrown into the back and tied up hands and feet in the rope that was scratching me painfully. I had duct tape around my mouth and heavily painting, my mind was screaming and the tears were still there on my facing but now heavy. I didn 't understand why someone would kidnap me, my family had no criminal background and we were good people. There was this man-like figure that was dressed in all black head to toe and he sat across the van keeping watch. Now it is all too hard to describe everything that happened was just in a period of 3 mins, but it felt like an eternity.
“Dad jerked the steering wheel to one side and drove off the road into the desert after her. Lori, Brian, and I braced one another with our arms, like we always did when Dad went on some wild chase that we knew would get bumpy… We shot forward toward Mom, who screamed and jumped out of the way. Dad turned around and went for her again” (Walls 43). This is when Rex is chasing Rose Mary, who is on foot, in a car. She is pregnant with her fifth child, and was mad at Rex when he disagreed with her about how long she carried Lori for.
I remember when I was young I would always think that when you start bleeding from your head that always meant that you were going to die. Well at least that is what I thought. On television, it would sort of be the same I would see people pass out because they were bleeding from the head. One day in Mexico, I was on the swings and I had seen one of my uncles he was my age, he jumped of the swing at midair and my father was taking care of us so he goes to my uncle to check on him and see if he was okay. Well as I see my father walking away, I panicked.
I walk into the room and I go to stand next to her. As she's working and me being six year old me I began to bug her. Poking her in the arm, whispering in her ear "What yeah doing, can I help, can we play now?" Just being flat out annoying. My grandmother had enough and started yelling at me, which made me cry.
“You have the right to have one foot in the box and take practice swings, it’s going to be ok,” he said, but I wasn’t really paying attention to him. I looked around at my team and the crowd they were all shocked like me. I could hear the girl’s muffled sobs from where I was standing. “Do I really hit that hard?” I thought to myself. The other team’s coaches walked the catcher back to the dugout and a new girl came in.
It felt like the small rocks were inside of me, gliding through my veins, destroying my nerves; but, I could still feel the ghosts of the fall. I knew I had to clean my hand up before things took a turn for the worse. Knowing that waiting would lead to worse consequences, I stumbled a quarter mile to our family friend’s house. Just by looking at their faces, I could tell that they knew they needed to act fast. Mrs. Craig, the friend’s mother, took me inside and gently dabbed a wet paper towel on my wound.
I hear Willy outside, I question his early arrival with agitation. Could it be the that he has crashed the car once again? I call out to Willy and ask why he has arrived early. As Willy enters the house he responds with the usual exhausted voice, he must be tired. Willy tells me that his arrival was due to troubles with the car.
