The shifter looked and sounded menacing, but anyone who knew him understood he was probably ranting about the latest celebrity breakup or the fact they were out of the "boyfriend stealer" shade of lipstick on his favorite website, or even, how he couldn 't find the exact shoes he needed for an outfit. Resident Cal Hampton 's real problems were few and far between, but no one was willing to say to his face that his lack of boyfriend stealer wasn 't a "real" problem. So, he seethed, sprinting through the woods and practically foaming at the mouth. Granted, it was worse as of late. Every little thing chased him off into the trees to burn the excess steam that seemed to be constantly building inside him.
Do you stay inside the cabin, do you jump into the foxhole, and do you fire a warning shot. It all looked good on paper. The moves you would make were laid out in black ink, simple moves. When the alarms go off, you do this and this, and yet the alarms have gone off, and you are standing there doing nothing.

They were too afraid to explore what it was because they were alone in the dark, watching the fires. They didn’t even bother looking for the beast since they anxious since they believe that the beast is real.
He did not mind of course for he wanted it to succeed and he could see it in the eyes of the officials and guards that they were terrified of the rebellion and they know that the government is losing the game of cat and mouse which they played with the rebilion. Michael lost track of time completely and soon did not even remember what the outside looked, for now, he only cared about surviving the beating and the questionings that were set up by the officials. He swore that he would never crack and so far he never did and just nodded his head. He knew how much he angered the officials and sometimes he believed that they called down the sergeant to terrify him but yet he is never
Frank Rudd and his wife Lisa usually never paid much attention to the commercials as they watched Law and Order reruns every night of the week. They were so used to the rotation of the same seven commercials that it caught them both off guard whenever a new one was thrown into the mix. One this night, one particular commercial caught both of their attentions almost instantly. The commercial starts with a well-groomed man sitting in some sort of laboratory and soft island music playing in the background—an unlikely combination. The man’s name is Roger Palmer, and he looks exactly like any other Joe Schmo you’d see on TV commercial—slicked back hair, shaven face, and a million dollar smile.
Nick tags along because he “had nothing better to do” (24) and seems to have little qualms about the fact that Tom is cheating on Daisy openly. As Daisy’s cousin, it is expected that he stands against Tom’s infidelity. However, Nick doesn’t question the situation and even goes on to get as debauched as everyone else at the party. Nick’s “bystander complex” is further cemented when he sneaks out of the party amongst the chaos and spends the rest of it with McKee. Socially, Nick wasn’t in any position that would hinder him from offering to help Myrtle or even to stop Tom from abusing her.
Lying uncomfortably on his side, on top of his stiff, springy mattress, Matt Watson stared with locked eyes up at a small dot on the ceiling. Nothing was interesting about it, nothing about was special, it was just there and that was all Matt cared about at the moment. Friends had come and gone in his past like a rich, chocolate cake, waiting to be devoured at a birthday party. One of these friends had actually brought him to the horrible hole in life where he was now, but through the year and a half he had spent in the Tripton, Tennesee, Correctional Facility, that puny dot was his companion through it all. Every night, including this peculiar one, Matt gazed at this small, circular, imperfection that rested on the smooth, gray ceiling,
“He was born completely and utterly without luck, January 1, 1990” (Harold 1). Eddie’s bad luck has left him accepting his bad luck, although he was a little frustrated with it at first. For example, “His luckless state kept away the pretty girls. Before they could sit beside him, someone else always grabbed the seat” (Harold 1).

These three men were famous because of their ingenious escape plan. No one knows if they died, or lived on that night, but due to the great amount of evidence, it is likely that they survived. It was around midnight on June 12, 1962, and all of the inmates were asleep at Alcatraz besides three. Frank Morris and the Anglin brothers were wide awake, ready to escape through an air vent in the back of the cell. According to Scholastic Scope Magazines, Frank Morris and the Anglin Brothers had used sharpened utensils, and a handmade drill to make a hole around the ventilation shaft large enough to fit through.

He was nothing like Nick 's expectations.
The boys felt it and stirred restlessly.”(36) Even though there is no evidence to support the idea of a beast, simply the fear of a beast or something unknown to them on the island causes them to become scared. Fear of the unknown in the boys continues to build up which causes them to think differently after a period of time on the island.
