It was the week before Halloween and Jacob brought up the haunted and some that went in never came back out. I thought well it’s the week before Halloween so why not. I had told my mom that i would spend the with Jacob and she said “that’s fine and don’t be rude.” Before we went we asked some people around town about it and they said “Some say they died, and others say they came out but after everybody left and then left the state.” I live in London. The house is on 23rd Avenue. It’s big and most of the windows are broken, but the ones that aren’t are covered by this weird goo.
After Algernon died, Charlie realized that he would start losing intelligence soon. Charlie decided to pick up a book that he used to enjoy, called Paradise Lost, “but when I picked up Paradise Lost I couldn’t understand it at all. I got so angry I threw the book across the room” (Keyes 23). When Charlie throws the book, it demonstrates how frustrated Charlie was because he couldn’t read it. The author also illustrated the level of stressed Charlie had by making Charlie throw the book instead of just being mad at himself.
“Of course not. It was just a stupid ghost story they made up to try and get us to chicken out of the dare.” Roman replied, boldly continuing to walk into the house. William followed behind quickly, mainly just because of the fear of being left alone in the otherwise empty house. The wooden floorboards groaned in protest at the weight of the two boys, and with every creak of the floor William jumped up some, anxiously glancing around, regretting accepting this dare in the
Significantly. So much so, that the ensuing reactions from audiences to Tía’s abusive treatment of Teresita would be starkly different in their intensities, albeit both negative. After having snuck into the main house and spent time with Don Tomás, Teresita returns home to Tía and tells her what happened. Her “parental figure” goes berzerk; “‘You stupid little shit,’ she
A very influential poet of the 1900s, Charles Baudelaire, once said,"The devil's finest trick is to persuade you that he does not exist." We can often see this in people's lives. The wickedness of a man often hides behind a mask of innocence and lies. In the short story “Lamb to the Slaughter” by Roald Dahl our main character Mrs. Maloney, a young married women with a passionate marriage is told some heart breaking news from Mr. Maloney, her husband and a local police officer. The unsettling information is not told to the reader, but it shakes Mrs. Maloney to the core.
Another character who is used to show the dangers of acting without integrity is Reverend Parris. Throughout the whole play, Parris exclusively looks out for himself while letting others take the fall. He shows his lack of honour by allowing others to be harmed by the hysteria in Salem while attention is diverted from him and his wrong-doing. By the end, he does come to understand that the hangings of John Proctor and Rebecca Nurse would be detrimental because they are still respected in the town, but he comes to this conclusion for the wrong and dishonourable reasons, as he is still only trying to protect his
I cannot believe how Walt is the one who supports me the most after I tried stealing his Gran Torino. It was a quite night sitting outside with my sister when my cousin’s gang arrived that night. I knew they were going to cause trouble and in less than a minute I got tackled and being forcefully dragged to the car, Luckily Walt was there with a gun or I would have been murdered by my own cousin. He protected us but he still didn’t like us then, we got told to get off his lawn. The following day my family had a party at our house and I sat in the basement in the corner not socializing, I was a quiet kid then an introvert.
The dreaded wall it petrifies others makes them not want to go outside for recess or show up to school that day or the next day. I was once one of those kids who were scared to go outside for recess or show up to school the next day numerous times. I was nervous the first day I got sent to the wall I ran away from all the teachers so they couldn't find me at all, but they ended up finding me in the middle of the tubes which sucked. They almost considered detention or sending me down to my mom’s room to tell her what I did which was bad for because that meant a place where I didn't want to go to. First grade was the year I got sent to the wall and ran away.
Of course, when my parents found me I started to cry because I knew I was going to get in trouble. The last memory I want to discuss happened at our apartment as well, but this time it was outside on the little playground just outside our sliding doors. The playground was most make up of wooden stairs and platforms with a single silver slide. My mom was chasing me around as I was scrambling up and down the stairs trying to keep out of her grasped. She later was
Transformation obviously creates fear. This can be seen in the following three stories as well. Oate’s “Where is here”,Arthur Tress’ “Dream Collector” and Julio Cortazar’s “House Taken Over” uses transformation of an ordinary person and an ordinary setting to show us how easily circumstances can change . Joyce Carol Oate’s “Where is Here” transformation scares readers because the story goes from being cheery to frightening . This

The first reason is about when they trapped Margot in the closet as the sun came out. They did that because they knew they would be there there whole life and Margot was supposed to go home next year. Also Margot was hated because she had actually seen the sun before and was isolated from the kids because of that. So they always made fun of here and kept her by herself.

After what seemed like days, it was mid-night and she had arrived at the first stop to a “safe house” where everyone would rest and grab some food and water for the night. “I remember the horrible smell, like a zoo”.
