It’s the kind of dream that wakes you try and stay awake after, because you know it’s waiting there for you behind your closed eyelids. (McNamee 11) This quote illustrates that Duncan is uncomfortable with what happened. The nightmares of the drowning girl keeps coming back to him because he did not save her. Just like Duncan, in The Penance, Octavia feels uncomfortable because of what he has done. He killed the three children’s cat because Octavia thought the cat was eating the chickens.
As he first dies while spying on a new man he suspects his wife is cheating upon him with, he fails to learn his lesson and continues to be jealous of every new man he sees her with. He thinks of biting each of them and at one-point calls one of them a cracker several times. At the same time he is also slowly turning more and more into a parrot. He can’t simply focus on his jealousy and becomes more distant in his thoughts of his wife. He eventually pities her featherless body rather than finding a pure beauty within it; wishing he could give her some of his feathers instead.
Footprints that matches the local witch but a snake was hiding in the shadows. It snapped and slithers away. The kids believed they catched away the evil creature but in actuality it did permanent damage to the family. The snake bite Ruth May and in a few moments, she was gone. Leah was the first one of the Price sister to notice their sister being bitten by seeing “Ruth May’s bare left shoulder, where two rd puncture wounds stood out.” (Kingsolver 364) Rachel’s reaction to the death of her sister says a lot about the character she developed into here in the Congos.
The fact that you cannot see any land behind her helps to show how she is isolated. The without warning you see Chrissy get pulled under water by the shark. She gets pulled around and dragged about by the shark. The music in this shot is very high paced. The scene the turns back to the boyfriend who can not hear her screams, because he has passed out.
They would pull the pin off a smoke grenade and toss it back and forth until one person chickened out (the yellow mother) or it exploded in mid air. They knew this was a dangerous game, as did the rest of the soldiers, who were not big fans of yellow mother. During one of the brutal games, the grenade accidentally blows up at Curt Lemon, and Rat Kiley is stunned. Lemon steps out into the light, where the rest of his platoon members could see him, with a brown face. The sunlight gleamed off of him, in a somewhat peaceful way, although he had just passed away because of a silly game.
They run out of water while the weather gets really hot. Everyone blames him for killing the albatross that they replace the cross with dead albatross around his neck to remind him of his error. Next, he indirectly get everyone on the ship dead because of the sin he commits. Feeling guilty, the Mariner wants to pray because he is still be cursed. But the Mariner escapes his curse by unconsciously blessing the water snakes, and the albatross drops off his neck into the ocean.
Wasps lead pointless lives; they buzz around your head stalking you for what seems like a lifetime, swooping around till eventually they sting you. The yellow and black insect just lives to annoy us with its constant humming in your ear. The noise it makes is faint but seems like a million stereos blasting in your ears when they get close, this faint sound is that of their tiny wings flapping. The wasp drives its sting into your skin for no reason, you feel a sharp stinging in you skin as if you have been stabbed with a knife, you look down to find a wasp near your arm. It flies off as if nothing has happened.
He is resentful of the success of others, and has attitude problems. He is the first to kill the chickens too, just like Jack killing the pigs. After Jack and a couple other people got done beating up Roger, acting like he was a pig, he then said “That was a good game.” (115). Jack did not care about others, he only cared about himself. Greg from Kid Nation was just like that, after he found out that they gave a gold star to someone who the council thought did the finest, that’s all he wanted.
Still in the same movie, Minerva starts to frequent a school and she socialize with a girl with bad intentions. During a play where Trujillo is invited, Minerva’s friend attempts to kill Trujillo with an arrow but is stopped by Minerva. The girl who tried to avenge her family, without surprises, disappears without giving any warnings. The last example, from the book Animal Farm written by George Orwell, is the rebellion of the hens. After being ordered to surrender their eggs, the hens decide to lay their eggs from the rafters to make them blow up.
