Through the rain he could make out the words Kansas City pound engraved in the side of the appalling van. While, the dog knew he must get away he also knew that it was much too late. Rufus was too weak to run and by the time the worrisome dog could stand up the man had already stepped out and was marching toward the dumpster that he laid upon. The monstrous, awful man stood over him with the aggressive leash and the small frightened dog knew from there that he would be condemned into the dark and evil pound. “Come on!” the man barked.
I was crying because my adrenaline was rushing, I have never been so scared in my life. As we got in the truck my body was stinging like crazy, I was stung everywhere. My feet hurt the worst. When I took my boot off bees started flying out of them, that when Christopher slammed on the brakes and we all jumped out of the truck. I threw my boots at the bees and eventually they all died down.
The reader can clearly see this on page 48 when Gordy sees Elizabeth walking to school and stops her in her tracks, and breaks all of Elizabeth’s supplies (a box of crayons, a notebook, a ruler, her pencils, her fountain pen, an unused gum eraser, and a bottle of blue ink), showing he is cruel because he breaks all of her supplies, when she did nothing. Another piece of evidence that shows Gordy is cruel is when Gordy grabs Elizabeth’s hair. According to the text, “Gordy started cursing. Grabbing a fistful of her hair, he pulled so hard Elizabeth’s hair jerked sideways (page 65).” Finally the last piece of evidence is when Gordy takes Elizabeth’s and Margaret’s comics and starts ripping them apart, only keeping the ones he wants. Some readers may take this as a sign of Gordy being greedy.
The house realized something was off so a voice was let off. “The house tried to save itself Doors sprang tightly shut, but the windows were broken by the heat and the wind blew and sucked upon the fire……. The house gave ground as the fire in ten billion angry sparks moved with flaming ease from room to room and then up the stairs. While scurrying water rats squeaked from the walls, pistoled their water, and ran for more. And the wall sprays let down showers of mechanical rain.
The main theme in the text is death. When the police cars pull up and the boys find out what is all about. They start to fear for their own lives. Willies decides to hide in the café, the main character is scared and prays to god. When the policeman slips and his gun starts bursting.
The winding road looked wet from the previous rain storm, but instead was covered with a thin layer of black ice. The old ford lurched off the road and climbed a hill adjacent to the road, only to roll back down and land roof first into the icy terrain. As I was hanging upside down, dangling by my seatbelt, I could feel blood dripping onto my face. I remember the buzzing in my head, my mom screaming my name, but I couldn’t reply. Everything was in slow motion.
One morning at about 8:00 a.m. when I woke up I went outside and looked down the street and saw some of my neighbors houses destroyed. For example the windows had been bashed in, their would be holes in the front door like someone had kicked their foot in it, and it looked like someone ran their mailbox over with a car. I went back inside to tell my family what I saw so that they would know. After I had finished telling them they ran outside to see it for themselfs. My mother and father looked as if they were about to cry in sadness and anger at the same time.
I acted extremely fast without even thinking. That all happened at a blink which surprised me a little. I heard screams as I grabbed my notebook and rushed up the hill. The day was May 18, 1964, and I was walking towards the burning church still pondering about Kennedy’s assassination six months ago. The tragic event made me so lightheaded and disoriented it’s hard for me to even tell what’s fact or fairytale.
His eyes water, his fist clenches, he bits his lip then gulps, and goes to run; he doesn’t make it past the old mattress on the floor he likes to call his bed before he gets hit in the gut by his mom’s boyfriend. Like a light that's blown by the wind; he is out.
