Ishmael has a flashback of his life in the war. In his dream he encounters a body wrapped in white bed sheets, and as he unwraps it he realizes it is his own face he is looking at. He then awakens, sweating and on the ground. He says, “I was afraid to fall asleep, but staying awake also brought back painful memories” (Beah 19). Even being in a different country cannot take away the hell that Ishmael has been through.
Sounds terrible, but I bet your mom is sitting in your room now, holding your pillow, looking out at the world that you stole from her.” (Dashner , Themaze runner,P.194 ).

On other side, author Wes Moore, getting involved in military school, was and experience that shaped his attitude and behavior. “After my first sargent left the room, I lay back down and pulled the covers back over myself. As my head hit the pillow, I smirked to think that I could make them leave my room so easily”... “Moments later the door slammed opened again, hitting the wall so hard flakes of the crusty blue paint chipped off. My entire chain of command...picked my mattress up off the top bunk and turned it over, dropping me five feet to the cold, hard, green tiled floor.” Wes now has to realize how he no longer has control over his actions, and must follow strict
He saw his entire stomach was bandaged up and bleeding slightly. Suddenly he felt a pair of soft hands lay him down onto the bed, it was his friend, Jacque. “Easy, if you move around too much you’ll reopen your wounds.” Jean looked somewhat confused and so Jacque describe how when he and Jean charged out of the trench, they made it halfway across the field and were right beside a stone wall when suddenly a cannon shell landed right on the other side of the wall, destroying it but knocking the two unconscious.

“The instant Louise thumped him into a chair and told him to be still, he vanished. If she didn’t have her squirming boy clutched in her hands, she usually had no idea where he was.”(Hillenbrand 5).

After murdering the Clutter family, Capote’s use of juxtaposition shows the contrast between how Dick and Perry respond to the previous crime committed. Perry goes to his home and grives about what he and Dick did: “… in a hotel room where window shades darkened the midday sun, Perry lay sleeping, with a gray portable radio murmuring beside him… He had merely fallen face down across the bed, as though sleep were a weapon that had struck him from behind…” (Capote 73). On the other hand, Dick acts as if nothing had happened and goes about his daily routine: “Dick was consuming a Sunday dinner… He had arrived home at noon, kissed his mother, readily replied to questions that his father put concerning his supposed overnight trip to Fort Scott, and sat down to eat…” (Capote 73). Through the structure of the text, Capote reveals Dick’s true self, by first showing Perry being ashamed of what he did to the family, then transitioning into Dick being unaware of the effects of his actions. Dick is a psychopath, that he can go about his day, unphased by his actions.

The novel states,” Montag moved back… checker mildred, tucked the covers about her carefully, and then lay down with the moonlight…” (Bradberry 15).
Joanna Martinez Ms. Tobenkin AP Literature, Period 4 November 14, 2015 Metamorphosis Quotes: 1-3 Chapter 1: “When Gregor Samsa woke up one morning from unsettling dreams, he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous vermin.” (Kafka 3) This quote indicates George’s characteristics. It shows how Gregor sees himself and how he is accepting of himself. He accepts the fact the people view him as a vermin and that he himself is a monstrous vermin. No one really knows how this came to be but he continues to live his life and accept his fate. This shows that the story begins with a confident and idealistic character.
In The Tell-Tale Heart the narrator does a very similar thing to what happens in The Black Cat, kills someone with no feelings of remorse for a very arbitrary reason. “The old man 's hour had come … In an instant I dragged him to the floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him.

Some kids on the same truck as me told me that the purpose of this camp was to weaken and kill jews so we couldn 't start a rebellion. This gave me the chills and i knew i wouldn 't make it out.

When i asked one of the people i share a bed with she said that when they came they were told that they would be allowed a shower but instead of water deadly gasses came out of the
From the victim 's story, she claimed to have walked into Robert Berkowitz’s room and found him sleeping on the couch. They agreed to hang out, but for her, it took an awful turn. The appellant, Berkowitz, had started to straddle and kiss her as she sat on his bed. As he tried to move forward she told him “no.” This is where he could have been accused of rape because she had told him no. Along with that, she was under the influence of alcohol and one cannot properly consent when intoxicated.
Thanking the Sir, I grab my glass and sit down to relax but find myself in a slight state of paranoia. A muffled scream is heard and I see some silhouettes dragging a figure towards a room. Thinking nothing of it, I return to peace taking slow sips of my drink. That peace is broken as I feel two strong men grab me, and someone else covers my mouth with some sort of fabric. Before I can even struggle, I feel my heart ache in pain and my body gives up drifting into a state of sleep.
