“There on the cabin porch, on three legs, stood the living skeleton of what had been a mighty coonhound.” The hound could use only one side of his face. The arm of and shoulder of Sounder faced immobilization. “Half the voice of the man was gone too, so in slow, measured, stuttering he told how he had been caught in a dynamite blast in the prison quarry, how the dead side had been crushed under an avalanche of limestone, and how he had been missed for a whole night in a search for dead and wounded.” Both Sounder and the father crippled from tragic events. Their injuries occurred in similar locations. The father’s voice quieted after losing half of his body to the avalanche.

“The Boarded Window” was first published in the San Francisco Examiner on April 12th, 1891; Bierce made some revisions before including it in Tales of Soldiers and Civilians (1892). To briefly summarize this story, a man named Murlock lives alone in the wilderness in a house with a boarded window. The narrator explains that the window was boarded up sometime after Murlock’s unnamed wife died. The narrator goes on to describe the strange events that happened the night after Murlock prepared his wife’s body for the grave. While Murlock watches over the dead body, a panther enters the cabin.
Scout explains, “People said he went out at night when the moon was down, and peeped in windows. When people’s azaleas froze in a cold snap, it was because he had breathed on them” (Lee 10). The people of Maycomb think of the Radley’s as an urban legend. Since Boo Radley hardly ever came out of his home, these accusations were made based on what people wanted to think of Boo. Without even knowing
The case of Lawrance Nealson The car breaks down somewhere outside Sacramento by a small lake and a motel on it 's death bed. Marlene doesn 't sleep, so while Lawrence crashes in a worn out bed she sits on a sun bleached dock stretching into the dark lake. She sits out there for what could be five minutes or an hour (she was never good with time) before Lawrence comes out. He drops down next to her and lights a cigarette, smoke clouding around his face and feet moving around in the water.

On the ride back home, all was well until Bob suddenly stumbled upon a rock while riding his bike. Claire got off her bike to help Bob get up. It was a really quiet evening until they heard a crying baby from the mansion in front of them.

The house was distressed and it looked like it was made of black glass.
Donald Justice- "Sonnet: The Poet at Seven" And on the porch, across the upturned chair, The boy would spread a dingy counterpane Against the length and majesty of the rain, And on all fours crawl under it like a bear To lick his wounds in secret, in his lair; And afterwards, in the windy yard again, One hand cocked back, release his paper plane Frail as a mayfly to the faithless air. And summer evenings he would whirl around Faster and faster till the drunken ground Rose up to meet him; sometimes he would squat Among the bent weeds of the vacant lot, Waiting for dusk and someone dear to come And whip him down the street, but gently home. This sonnet is an example of a Petrarchan sonnet. It is divided into two parts; the octave and sestet.
He lived on the farm with the fellow, but Old Ben (the snake) disappeared, unknown at the end of the story. The second story is "A Glow in the Dark". It was quite an unnerving narrative; however, it had an amusing end. The story was set in harsh, cold lands, and the narrator was dog-sledding when he came across a particular beam of light. This light reminded him of ghosts.

It 's engulfing every last ounce of hope I was holding when another friend accepted me to sleep on their couch for a few weeks. Until they were sick of my endless broken promises about finding a job and using their money for anything other than alchol to cope with the enclosing darkness. Now I have spent my last ten dollars on a greasy pork bun.
Their plan failed. After getting dropped off, they noticed a big dark something was at the corner of the barn. It was a 1956 Chevrolet with the key in the ignition.
