Terry also reaches to eject the CD, which Jane, in the back seat has asked for, so she can take it with her. Shaun yells “ Watch out!” Terry looks up and sees that a student walking their bike is emerging from in front of the car with the turn signal heading toward campus. Terry slams on the brakes and swerves right to avoid the student. After the Suzuki hits and runs up the curb, the vehicle rolls over. The car misses the student but slides and crashes into the pole for the traffic signal.
As Perry walks thinking to himself about what just happened a lady jumps out of her car and yells Michael’s name. It was Perry’s girlfriend from high school; she jumps on him and gives him a big hug. In one moment Perry recalls a random night that he would never have thought about if it wasn’t for him remembering the smell of her “spearmint kisses.” No words were needed to be said, all it took was his nostrils inhaling the sweet smell of her fresh breath and the memories flashed through his head. Being a paramedic, nurse, and firefighter, Perry tells some stories that are very sad and seems to put him into a lower mood. Some of the

The narrator describes how he drives Jeff, Digby, and himself all throughout the town and to Greasy Lake in his mother’s station wagon. When they arrive at Greasy Lake, they discover a “mint, metallic blue” ’57 Chevy whom they believe belongs to another boy named Tony Lovett (126). However, instead of Tony Lovett, a “very bad character in greasy jeans and engineer boots” owns the car, and is inside of it with his girlfriend (127). Next to the Chevy stands a motorcycle, like a “gaunt chrome insect,” that seems to be abandoned (126). The descriptions of the motorcycle and the “greasy character,” both produce the tough image that the narrator, Jeff, and Digby yearn for, whereas the narrator’s mother’s “whining” station wagon does not (125, 127).
They were already acquainted with the boy and he went happily with them on that May afternoon. They drove him to within a few blocks of the Franks residence in Hyde Park then suddenly grabbed him, stuffed a gag in his mouth and smashed his skull four times with a chisel. He fell to the floor and bled to death in the car. When the brief bit of excitement was over, Leopold and Loeb casually drove away, stopped for lunch and then ended up near a culvert along the Pennsylvania Railroad tracks. After dunking the boy’s head underwater to make sure that he was dead, they poured acid on his face (so that he would be hard to identify) then stuffed his body into a drainpipe.
He is driving his mom’s car and his friends are rolling joints and doing things they consider bad like yelling out the window. On their drive, they run into a 1957 Chevy they recognize as their friends’, Tony Lovett. They think that Tony is with a girl getting intimate and Digby decides to flash the headlights and honk the horn to make a joke at Tony. This is also an example of arrogance and misunderstanding of being bad. As they see a figure emerging from the car, the narrator realizes that this is not Tony and quickly his mindset changes to fear and
The struggle they face at Devon in the summer of 1942 force them to grow up and lose the innocence of their youth. Gene states “I couldn’t help envying him that a little, which was perfectly normal.” (Knowles 25) Each turn of the page takes you deeper into Gene’s world from when he bent the branch while Finny was jumping off the tree into the river, to the fall of Finny down the marble steps. Each of these tragic events limits the athletic ability of Finny. The story draws you in like a kid to a candy bar and you feel Gene’s agony as he realizes his jealousy of Finny is unfounded. The author shows Gene’s growth throughout the novel as he tells Finny that he is the one who shook the branch and pushed him out of the tree and caused his leg to break.
Luckily, the other driver was paying attention to the speeding motorist running the red light, and was able to avoid hitting the car. The worst driving skill by far is drivers being preoccupied with talking on cell phones, or texting while driving. One motorist was talking on his cell
University Ave is a large street, so I tried to make a direct U-turn. I thought it just took one step instead of three. I didn’t want to turn, then turn back, and finally go forward. I didn’t pay attention to the speed of my car, and the result was one of the tires of my car went on the pavement and couldn’t move forward anymore. I tried to turn back, but it was impossible.
