In fact, the older classmen would pants Holling whenever he was running at the front of the pack (Schmidt 91).

Frequently, she is verbally abused by her siblings by being called many rude names. “‘You don't know because you are stupid!’” (Mah 14).

They were so cruel to her, as they even mocked her, with her name originally being “Cinderwench.” She couldn’t tell her father about the cruelties that she dealt with, since if she did, her father “would have rattled her off; for his wife governed him entirely.” When the King’s son invited everyone to his ball, although Cinderella yearned to go, she was not allowed. Instead, she had to help her sisters prepare to attend the ball, When her sisters mentioned Cinderella attending the ball, they shook the topic off by stating “‘it would make the people laugh to see a Cinderwench at a ball.’” They ridiculed the person that helped them to prepare for the event and stayed ignorant to Cinderella’s feelings or wants towards the

In football it never says if you receive any players have disabilities that you cannot play because he is a good player. My sister’s friend Lizzie told me that her little brother relinquished football because he was too afraid to tackle people. When I had heard that story I thought that it was really eerie.

It didn’t come out from the tree. I didn’t get that money tree that was planted in my yard because it was already dead.” During high school, Michelle didn’t pay very good attention during school.
