I began to weep, and the tear- blurred vision in red before me looked very familiar. ‘Doodle!’ I screamed above the pounding storm and threw my body to the earth above his. For a long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen scarlet ibis.” Because his pride got in the way and made him push his brother too hard, his brother
After Hassan had being raped by Assef and his friends, Amir had not seen him for weeks. He would do his chores and then go back to bed to sleep.Throughout time Amir couldn't look Hassan in the face without feeling guilty that he did not intervene. One day Hassan asked Amir if he would enjoy to take a hike up the hill, they did hike up the hill but Amir realized it had being a mistake and wanted to return home. Amir couldn't be around Hassan without getting headaches and feeling guilty. As Amir and Baba were in the garden Amir brought up a topic that Baba had never thought or wanted to, he asked “if he had ever thought about getting new servants?” Baba was in disgust when he heard those words come out of Amir’s mouth.
I never found out what it was, however I got stuck. Suddenly, someone opened the door. No matter who it was it was scary. So scary that I flew right out of the sticky substance and the out the window. As I sat down on my kitchen counter panting and out of breathe, I started to come up with a plan to get into the house, and make it so that Bert couldn 't get in at all.
Dubose. Scout, Jem’s younger sister, calls Mrs. Dubose“plain hell.” (Lee 7). Mrs. Dubose is not a likable woman, a point made further clear when Scout describes her as “Horrible. Her face was the color of a dirty pillowcase, and the corners of her mouth glistened with wet,” (Lee 142). After the sharp-tongued crone insults Jem’s father, Atticus, Jem flies into a rage, rampaging across Mrs. Dubose’s garden and refusing to stop until “he had cut the tops off every camellia bush Mrs. Dubose owned” (Lee 137).
Whenever they would walk past her house, she would shout hateful and insulting comments at them. Atticus told them to not let her comments affect them. One day, Mrs. Dubose made a comment about Atticus defending Tom Robinson. The comment was hateful and racist toward Atticus and Tom. Jem was angered by her comment and fueled by rage, cut down all of Mrs. Dubose 's camellia bushes.
I fucking hate her, but she still finds the need to stalk me and treat me as if I’m 5 years old. I pushed her off of me, making sure I was forceful. “Get the FUCK off of me and please, for the love of god, leave me alone.” Juliet’s pout descended further as she proceeded to shove her ungodly breasts in my face in an honest attempt at a hug. “God, Kleenex! You’re too sad!
Watched with envy and anger towards me, people staring because I had what they didn’t. No one would talk to me after winning, maybe it was because they was intimidated, maybe they just hated the fact I could leave this place any time I wanted. Walking down the street before winning everyone said Hi, I knew the whole town. No one wanted anything or hated me for no reason and now, now the only time people acknowledge my existence is when they are at my door step begging me to help them. But why should I help them?
The branches are tearing at my exposed skin and my bag, but I don’t care. If I stop running, he’ll catch me and kill me too. I’m only seven, I deserve none of this. I don’t deserve to have watched my father kill my mother, and I certainly don’t deserve to die because of my father’s stupid mistakes. “Shit!” I scream as I fall.
She talks about how she was treated by Dr. Flint "But Dr. Flint swore he would kill me, if I was not as silent as the grave." Although in Jacobs narrative she was treated, in Douglass' his grandmother was whipped "The louder she screamed, the harder he whipped, and where the blood ran fastest, there he whipped the longest." He also talks about how bad women had it "He would whip her to make her scream, and whip her to make her hush; and not until overcome, would he cease to swing the blood-clooted cowskin." Then he talks about how slavery was like hell "It was the blood-stained gate, the entrance to the hell of slavery, through which I was about to pass." The counterclaim will talk about how Fredrick Douglass and Harriet Jacobs narrative talk about how how women had it worse than men did.
