Esperanza pesters her mother for three days, asking for a note to eat in the canteen. She tells her mother “You will see me less, and like me more.”
When Sal’s mom was still in Bybanks they always picked blackberries together. When her mom kissed the tree Sal kissed the same tree and could taste some blackberries so Sal started to kiss all kinds of trees, each with a different taste. On page 29 Sal says, “And then I started thinking about the blackberries, and I remembered a time my mother and I walked around the rims and the fields and pastures in Bybanks, picking blackberries.” This shows blackberries are very important to Sal because it was a good memory about her mom instead of the one where she yelled at her. Also when Sal kissed the tree she could taste blackberries so Sal started to love blackberries.

What do I want?” and she choose to be a midwife’s apprentice. She thought of “the joyful chatter of birds building their nests ... the triumph on the face of the midwife as she coaxed a reluctant baby into life, remembered the silky feel of Tansy's newborn calves and the sticky softness of the baby called Alyce Little.” Alyce decided to go to the village to become Jane sharp’s apprentice.

Primarily, the lady famously stuffer her pets when they passed away to preserve them, which was practice for her victims. Also, the lady made the guests sign the guest book spat is she forgets their name she can "come down.. and look it up"(Dahl 5). Neither Mr. Temple or Mr. , guests of the Brad and breakfast, have ever left and "they're on the third floor, both of them together"(Dahl 5).

Some believe that is the fruit that Eve ate off the forbidden tree. Persephone eating the seeds sealed her fate, she would have to stay with Hades six months out of the year.

Torvald perpetuates aids to Nora’s doll-like personality, by calling her pet-names: “Come, come, my little skylark must not droop her wings” (Ibsen 5). Nora follows Torvald around in a submissive manner. Calling her “little skylark” and “little squirrel,” Torvald degrades her as both a woman and a human. The word “little” is also frequently used before the pet names to illustrate how Torvald does not see Nora as equal; rather, Nora is his property or possession, similarly to how a child looks after his or hers doll. Not only does Torvald call her pet names, but he also controls what she eats.

Have you ever done something you should not have due to the fact that you were afraid? Similar to how when John Proctor was under pressure he screamed out that, “God is dead!” (Miller, 198). Or lie to keep yourself from getting in trouble? Like how Tituba did to save herself from being labeled as a witch by saying she saw Sarah Good with the Devil.
