The dying minister follows with a sudden surge of energy. He then tells the people encircling his bed that this black veil, which has caused terror in men, women, and children, is not present on his face alone. In horror, Clark questions what unconfessed crime Hooper is taking with him into eternity to face judgment. He sees every face wearing a black veil. With the death rattle in his throat and the black veil on his face, Reverend Hooper smiles that same faint, sad smile.
Praying and sobbing over her, Giovanni remained in the room vacant of mercy for his heart. Throughout the night, Giovanni cried out. As the clock stuck the morning hour of three, Giovanni was struck with a feeling of uneasiness. Giovanni looked around the room, feeling as if he was being watched.

Yes, but it is uplifting considering, referring to this scene in correlation to the scene of us sinking. True I say.We were watching the trailer of a movie?

Good Bye? “There we laid her to rest in a dark oak coffin in her final spot.” My Dad told me as I snuggled up in my fluffy pillows, trying to sleep, until I remembered… The dark oak coffin just like the wood of my bed frame. Being 13 years old never helped either, watching the coffin being lowered down into the grave and being covered with dirt was like being shot in the stomach. I will never forget that. Dad said, “We laid purple lilies, her favorite flowers, by her grave as we said our last goodbyes.” “Goodbye Mama, you kept yelling as we walked away.

I. Imagine this: You come home from a long day of work, you go to lay down in your dark and serene room. You begin to fall asleep and you start to hear a faint knocking. The knocking then becomes more potent and suddenly violent. You try to jump up and check what it is, but you realize you can’t move a muscle and you can’t even lift a finger.
I laid motionless on the bed, on the pile of mess that is my room and a representation of my life. I closed my eyes and reopened them, hoping to see something different appear on the clock. Another realization came to me as I remained in the bed. It's a lonely and sad place to exist because all I do is exist, I do not live, I do not know how to or what it's like to be just normal. I get angry at myself for feeling the way I do because I know it’s not a normal behavior.Every day I would find a new lie to tell
She continues to describe her dad as, “marble-heavy, a bag full of God”. In this line, the speaker might be associating her dad’s corps with the heaviness of the marble. Taking into consideration that her dad passed away when she was at the age where he was a God to her and her idol, “a bag full of God” could be a reference to his body in the coffin. She continues by saying that her father looked like a scary statue with one swollen grey toe, which has full power over her full life and calls for her entire dedication.

According to Mr. Karazai 's journal, it states, his most recent entry showed that he had signs of depression and that his son was the only heir of his that remains.

While investigating, there were no signs of sharp objects (i.e. scissors, knives, etc) to cut the piano strings.
Green Acres seems to pride itself on being a sort-of “one-stop” funeral choice, with having a mortuary, chapel, and cemetery all within their land. Green Acres Cemetery really surprised me with all of the different types of memorials they had there. While most of the grave markers were traditional-looking headstones, there were also several giant and elaborate memorials. There was one memorial in particular towards the back of the cemetery that had a concrete divider around the whole plot and it contained a whole family. There was a very large memorial in a tombstone shape at the head of the plot that had a picture of the husband, wife, and daughter-who was holding her puppy, and one single date of death for all three of them engraved into it.
“Wake up,you 're late” a voice rang.As I lifted my head of the pillow I noticed that my alarm clock showed that it was 10:53. “Oh shoot!How did you guys let me sleep in three extra hours?”I asked in a tired voice “We don’t have time for whining so get to work”The soldier demanded before slapping me across the back of the head. “Okay,you don’t have to get violent”I replied rubbing the back of my head. As I strolled passed jealous faces looking for my crew I noticed something unusual.A new face is unusual here in the Yellow Zone.Although this area is mostly cleared of those undead freaks,they still don’t let recruits so young in. “Hey Cap 'n,who 's the new kid”I asked “Funny you ask,he is the new addition to your crew”The captain answered Then a thought shot to the top of my head.They 're sending us to the Dark Zone.We are getting sent to the most dangerous zone.My crew is going to be the third crew to venture the Dark Zone.
Short Story Groaning, I tentatively open my eyes. I haven’t slept in 48 hours. My head felt like a torrent of glass shards jabbing into my brain. “Remind me to never ever stay awake for this long.” I whisper to myself. My mind reeling, I try to stand up, but then quickly collapse to the ground.
