In Chapter fourteen of “Blood Meridian” by Cormac McCarthy, it ends up being ridiculously crazy how they’ve changed their acts, it’s nothing new or different to them though, as they’ve just made it their regular way. The Judge and Bathcat buy two little puppies from a little boy, they didn’t plan to keep them though. They of course had to take the puppies lives for fun. The Judge threw them into the river for Bathcat to shoot dead as they were afloat. This part of the book really got to me.
If you could live forever would you?In the book “Tuck Everlasting” the Tucks are a family of four trying to find a place to settle down and build a house.When trying to find land they a drink of water from a spring, what they did not know was that the spring was magic or something because they were not ageing at all.The day that they realized something was not right was when Jesse, the son, fell out a tree and it did not feel anything. Then Mae, the mom, cut herself, Pa got a snake bite, and Jesse ate poison toadstools but nothing happened to them. Finally after about six or seven years they were not looking any older.

. 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).
Also, a mixture of milk and honey rubbed on the exposed part of his body to attract the flies. Then he was left afloat on a lake. Later, the person’s fecal, which was caused by diarrhea, accumulated the container and the condemned caught gangrene. The execution could last over two weeks as the result of starvation, dehydration and septic shock. While the method was so cruel and brutal, but take it into account that the ancient Persians could not burn, drown or buried anyone – even their deceased relatives - due to their religion.
My other neighbors lived because they put boards over there windows and evacuated as soon as they could. There house was perfect when they got home because they put boards on the windows. Not very many people survived hurricane Tera it was a tragic event in the history of the United States. This was the worst event to ever take place on American soil. If you hear about a hurricane you should evacuate as quick as you can because you never know how bad the hurricane will be or if it will kill you.
As he slipped on his garden gloves and delicately cut the fence to free the writhing snake, I watched closely. Although young children are taught to be afraid of snakes and other perilous creatures, fear was overshadowed by curiosity. As soon as the sun rose on the following day, I snatched a pair of garden gloves and a few five-gallon ice cream pails. I informed my parents that I was going outside; they did not have even the slightest inkling of what I was about to do. It was impossible to keep myself from knowing more
The two men Billy remember from the missing person’s reports, when he saw the names in her guest book. But before this, Billy says no names have been in the log book since these two other men. It only becomes tremendously suspicious and uncanny when Dahl implements her dialogue to be, “I stuff all my little pets myself when they pass away”… Although this makes the Landlady seem very insane and crazy, if we were to refer back to the idea of gender stereotypes and the possible inference of sexual connotations; Dahl maybe want to prove that stereotypically you should not judge someone by their title, nor their role. They can be insane, strong, happy, sad etc regardless of gender. As a short story I liked it and could have analyzed it through a number of different theories.
Marlin was afraid to go after Nemo because he's afraid of the dark, open Sea. As in the beginning of the story all of the fish eggs, except one, were eaten by a swordfish so was Nemo's mother. Marlin has a lot of fear built up inside of him, he didn't want anything to happen to Nemo so he was a very strict parent. While Marlin was on the adventure he ran into a fish named Dory. Dory was not the smartest of fish but had a lot of confidence in herself.
In the beginnning of the story Skyes pretends to have a snake fall near her by placing a whip a moving it in a slithering motion, and Delia says ¨Skyes, what you throw dat whip on me like dat? You know it would skeer me—looks just like a snake,an´ you knows how skeered Ah is of snakes.¨ He did this because he enjoys seeing her in fear because that’s his goal, but her evolution has no longer let him do that. Until one day after many days of being together in silence, Skyes appears once again at the house. This time with a soap box that he left but Delia didn’t pay much attention to it. It wasn’t until Skyes suspiciously said ¨Look in de box dere Delia, Ah done brung yuh somethin´!¨.
First, Rikki shows a whole lot of courage when “she plunged into the rat hole where she and Nag used to live, his little white teeth were clenched on her tail and he went down with her” (and every mongoose knows not to follow a snake into their hole, otherwise there’s a huge chance that you won’t be alive for much longer) he knew that a mongoose should never go down into a snake’s hole. Second, Rikki also shows a good deal
