He completely ignores who the people are, but rather where is the jeep. Soon after the doctor comes, David simply acts normal, telling the doctor that he already knew that his father was dead, and had still acted like a broken puppy. In “Walking Out” David experiences an extreme challenge that completely changes him. He was once a quiet, jumpy, scared boy who never really wanted to go camping, had changed to a calm, broken person, who was emotionless about his father's death. With so many things happening through the events of his trip, he had endured it all and survived, but came out

He wants to make it seem like it didn’t bother him at all, when it probably did.
The short story ‘On the Sidewalk Bleeding’ by Erin Hunter is a tragic tale of a boy who realizes too late that he wants to be remembered as more than a title. In the last moments of life, it becomes clear that the pride found in a title means nothing compared to the value in who he is as an individual. This short story establishes a dark and depressing mood right from the start, as the main character Andy lays on the biting cold, hard ground of a dark alley. In the dark, unwelcoming alley where this short story takes place, Andy lays motionless with the March rain pouring down on him, drilling onto his jacket and the rest of his body as he bleeds. The biting rain drenched him and his surroundings, making the street glisten under the glow of the cars’ lights and causing their tires to swish as they drive by.
As I said before, we as human beings don’t measure risks when something that we love doing or we would love to do is done. This is what happened to Christopher McCandless, he always wanted to go away from society and take a journey into the wild places of the U.S. and Alaska. After two years of continuous backpacking through many different places and meeting new friends he got to a bleak place in Alaska and he died from starvation. We all have a grief feeling about his death, but he died “on his own law”, he was happy doing what he was doing. If you were one of Christopher McCandless parents, would you be regretting having let go your son?

David hears the sound of sobbing in the basement so he went down and sees his dad holding Uncle Frank, crying. David describes what he sees “Uncle Frank lay on the floor, his head cradled against my father’s chest. The gash across Uncle Frank’s wrist had already started its useless healing” (154). After witnessing this, David does not squeal or act like any child would when they see a dead body. Wesley tells David to go up and act like nothing happened.
It is with these thoughts that eventually allow the boy to sleep on the cold floor in the middle of the street. ……………………………… An unknown amount of time later and the boy wakes up only to find that his stomach is rumbling and the sky is dark. He is unable to move a finger due to exhaustion and lack of energy. it is at this point that the little boy has resigned himself to death and hopes to close his eyes again to be able to see the faces of his family one more time before he drifts of into the starts. “Are you afraid child?” says an aged voice.
He was done. “Satisfied, apparently with what he had learned during his two months of solitary life in the wild, Mccandless decided to return to civilization.” (168). Mccandless had finished his quest, but sadly for him he died for a simple, unforgiving mistake. The one mistake that truly killed Chris was so: “When Mccandless tried to walk out of the bush…the basket was in the same as it is now on his side of the canyon…crossing the Teklanika to safety would have been a trivial matter. Because he had no topographic map, however, he had no way of conceiving that salvation was so close.” (174).
The internal conflict was expressed more so in the midst of the story when the main character started his hike up to camp to find the boys and he realized it was a lot colder than he thought. During this time he remembered the old man from Sulphur Creek who told him about the weather previously before and that he shouldn’t go alone. The internal conflict came at an climax when the man realized he could freeze to death since he was not able to start a fire and his method of beating his hands to spark a feeling of sensation didn’t work. He was at anger with himself when he realized he was at fault with this predicament he was in, and coming to an end he accept his fate of death and died lying in the snow. This story relates to the societal message that people need people, if the main character would have just had someone with him he could of survived and would’ve made it back to camp, but he decided to go alone and being alone is what ended his
Steve Freeling had sat against the wall asleep when he heard Nathan. Steve looked around him and saw Eric with his fake smile and felt his flesh crawl, though it was easier to hide now. "You lying fuck. You might have this saint act down with everyone else, but you 're not fooling me." he muttered under his breath completely inaudibly while getting up to put his SIG-Sauer P226 into its holster and grab his (stolen) Ithaca 37.
. So may you all” (Gardner 12). Grendel whisper’s the quote and is overcome with joy because he never knew that the animals were so calm and that they wouldn’t attack him for unexplainable reasons and he is terrified because he remembers all the times that he was attacked or spooked off by the animals. Finally, Grendel is done with life he get’s to the cliff and sits there thinking about what’s going to happen in his life flashes before his eyes and he thinks of how Beowulf got him and claims it was an accident because she slipped on blood, so he runs out of the hall. “Grendel stumbles out of the hall and into the darkness of the night…...Grendel calls for his mother one last time” (Gardner 12).
