    The next day, Rainsford woke up to the smell of honeysuckle essence, he felt like a new man in “his bed”. He remembered what happened last night to General Zaroff, how he tried to compromise with him “oh but general a deal is a deal” Rainsford had told General Zaroff, “your right my good sir but you see I am a man who says what might be important and useful…. and this deal I made with you does not settle with me….now I would like to give you a much better deal my good ma-“.

    As Donnie Vincent once said, "The truth is... I'm always saddened when I kill an animal. It's not remorse I feel. I know why I'm a hunter. It's out of respect." But not always do the roles stay the same, sometimes, the tides turn and the hunted become the hunters.This story is so thought provoking, because of its classic theme that anyone can become the hunted. When one looks at “Hungry Like The Wolf” by duran duran, one can see that this theme is still pertinent to today’s world because even in music they show that anyone can become the hunted. One example is when in the duran duran song, they say “Straddle the line, in discord and rhyme, I’m on the hunt I’m after you.” The use of mood, suspense and setting are expertly crafted to support the theme of The Most Dangerous Game”.…

    I believe in taking action in a bad situation. It all started when i asked to go over my brother, so the first thing we did when i got over his was go outside we played basketball for most of the day, then we went to the store. We got all types of things like hot chips and candy, but while we were walking all of sudden we saw a brown and black dog with slob dripping from it’s mouth. And the dog started chasing me and my brother down the street, but luckily me and my brother got away safe and sound but we were terrified.

    Throughout all the articles and stories I’ve read, I believe that all lives matter. In any situation, emergency, or life problems, all lives matter. It doesn’t matter what you did, whether it be good, or bad. By God, we were all created equal. So suppose you were a firefighter that was on call during the 9/11 attack in New York. And you were faced with a situation where you had to either save the 57 year old receptionist or would you save the 19 year old mail boy? Or would you risk calling in backup to save both, but have the risk of not saving either or. These are the types of questions we have to ask ourselves daily.…

    It was a hot summer night, and the wind was blowing in my face. The adrenaline was rushing through my veins, and I was ready to play. My opponent, equally as skilled as me, was dribbling down the soccer field with the same amount of intensity. She approached. As she was getting ready to make the pass to her teammate, our feet collided. Pain started shooting up from the bottom of my foot, to the top of my knee. I fell on the ground, and the coach comes to check on me. I am out of the game. All that preparing for that one moment, gone. Gone, because I had hurt my ankle. Gone, because I wouldn’t be able to play soccer again that season. Gone, because even though I didn’t know it, I would never be the same.…

    Rainsford awoke after the best night sleep of his life. It wasn’t just the fact that the bed was one of the comfiest he had ever slept in, or the fact he was exhausted after being hunted for three days, but the enormous relief he felt by beating the general at his own game. He spent most of his morning planning in his mind a payback for the general. It wasn't revenge, but Rainsford felt that the general needed reminding that the game he was playing was wrong. However, Rainsford felt certain uneasiness at the fact he had won the hunt, what extent would the general go to now to satisfy his hunting pleasures? Would he now try even more extremes in hunting? Rainsford shuddered as he thought of the things the general may do, but tried to shrug them off as he thought of a plan to payback the general, and it needed to be good.…
