In Ray Bradbury’s, Something Wicked this Way Comes, William Halloway frequently expressed anxious and fearful tones due to his inexperience in dangerous situations.

Will’s reaction at the Theatre demonstrates an anxious tone because he knew he wasn't supposed to be there and if he was caught peeking into a brothel he would be punished. Also, being found there would ruin his respectable reputation that he valued highly. When Will briefly explained his plan to his father over the phone his anxiety is also evident, like when he said, “‘I got to go.’”(164) He abruptly concludes the conversation, showing urgency like when he quickly says, “‘…got to go.’”(164) Will was anxious because he understood that hiding from the carnival would be difficult due to the freaks superhuman abilities.
