In this paragraph I aim to prove that king John was a bad king. I believe this because John was a poor war leader because in Matthew Paris’s he is shown sitting on a campaign stool (not a throne). He also lost Normandy and many of his other lands because of his own laziness according to a quote from Matthew Paris. Secondly he was greedy for money because a quote from Gervase a monk says ‘the whole of England was taxed heavily’. He also stole from his people which suggested he is greedy.
The Brennan’s were a well-respected family in the town but the action of Daniel left the feeling of hatred for the family.” The town of Mumbilli was bleeding.” The town was extremely affected by the accident. “Nicole with a beautiful voice and Luke- all round sporting hero were both killed and the only to blame was Daniel. The town believed that Daniel should get a long sentence for ruining the lives of others.

In "The Miller's Tale", a clever student named Nicholas decides to trick the carpenter John by sleeping with his young and attractive wife Alison. Nicholas concocts an idiotic plan perfect for the dimwitted carpenter; he tells him a furious flood much deadlier than Noah's Flood will occur next Monday, and the only way to survive it is by sleeping overnight in tubs placed on the roof. John immediately believes him, but keeps quiet about it at Nicholas' request. When Monday night comes, John is fast asleep in the tub, which allows Nicholas and Alison to sneak down to John's room and have passionate sex. The carpenter is oblivious of what the two are up to, and this instance of humor shows the ignorance of the carpenter.
According to Holden, Allie was the nicest person he knew and Holden compared his brother to innocence. On the day Allie died Holden was so broken up that he did not know how to express his feelings about the event. Holden could not deal with the immense pain of losing Allie, so he started to induce physical pain on himself.

One of those situations being the betrayal of Finny to Gene when he causes him to flunk his first test. Another being how betrayed Gene felt when Leper accused him of deliberately hurting Finny and causing him to fall out of the tree, shattering his leg.

He had always thought they were best friends and that they were always there for each other, when Finny never realized Gene only saw the competition between them, and that really shows how completely different types of people they are.

He poorly covers his mistake by saying “ I lost most of it in the big panic- the panic of the war” and doesn’t make much sense, because he doesn’t seem to have any idea what he’s actually talking about.

The man, unconvinced, drives the angel away and takes an alcohol-induced nap. Instead of a 25-minute nap, he wakes up two hours later, having missed an appointment to renew his fire insurance.
