In the book A Child Called “it”, by Dave Pelzer, Catherine, Dave’s mother starves Dave as punishment. After the incident with burning David on top of a stove, Catherine resorted to other forms of abusive punishments like hitting him and starving him. I predict that Catherine will continue to abuse Dave until someone in his school recognizes his injuries. Throughout the book, Catherine has done so many abusive things to Dave with the proof of scars,marks,bruises and etcetera. For example, The time when Catherine burned Dave 's skin on top of a hot stove, he was covered with burns and his“skin seemed to explode from the heat” (p.28).

It is not revealed if Westley and Buttercup lived “happily ever after”. The abrupt ending to the tale has the group fleeing from Humperdinck and his men and “the night behind them was filled with the crescendoing sound of pursuit.” Goldman labeled this as “a ‘Lady or the Tiger?’ type effect”, referencing the short story by Frank R Stockton.

Confused and hurt, Montag thought, “suddenly she was so strange he couldn’t believe he knew her at all”(Bradbury 39). Montag also changes a lot after that fateful night. He encounters a woman, who has books in her possession, that is willing to die for knowledge. She couldn’t bear to live a second without her books.

In particular, the story “Ashputtle”, uses the archetype of a spiritual entity who helps the individual when no one else would. Additionally, the story shows the archetype of evil being punished and the kind souls live happily ever after. So, when Ashputtle’s Stepfamily is cruel to her, she remains benevolent, which grants her a beautiful life while her stepsisters are blinded and bloody.
