I stared at him as i stop myself from sitting on the chair. i stood right back up never letting my eyes avert his. the only thing that you can hear in this very living room is the vehicles passing through the street outside of this building. We both are having a war through our eyes as my heart beats a new beat. Kill Nino? Can he even do that, kill someone he been around with for years? but then again Nino said the same thing about Eli. What type of relationship do these niggas have with each other?

Can Eli take the risk and kill Nino as we escape to a new life together? What if he fails? Nino not only will he kill Eli he will definitely come after me killing me with his bare hands. I can't escape these two since Nino wants me to cut all ties with Eli or else and Eli wants me to runaway with him into a dangerous life having to watch my back 24/7. This is not what I planned when I decided to come here. The plan was to come and break it to Eli that I wasn't going to be with him anymore, and he should move on.

I wait for a smile or a laugh to come out of him to show he's joking about everything, and he wasn't serious, but of course Eli is full blown serious with no hint of a smile paste on him. I sigh a deep sigh knowing I have to do something or somehow think of a way to escape this two men that has me standing in the middle of this. I mean I have feeling for Eli, but it's not deep way I can just trust him to just come running with me, you

Run as if the devil were after you! Don't look at the SS, run straight in front of you.” That quote was when Elie was trying to show the guards he was strong and could work. ( PAGE 78) Elie tried his hardest to not get chosen, and ran as fast as he could to impress the guards, because he had motivation to stay alive, and hopefully get out of the camp with his…

    Eliezer had many reasons to become hopeless. He was how other Jews killed each other very selfishly over a piece of bread. "Here, every man has to fight for himself and not think of anyone else.... Here, there are no fathers, no brothers, no friends. Everyone lives and dies for himself alone." If mankind is this disgusting then God must be this way or may not exist. When Eliezer first got to the concentration camp he didn't have any hope. " Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust." He saw how many people killed each other so this made him think there was no hope for him. Throughout the story other than the conflict Eliezer has with the Nazis, he also has a conflict with himself: He started questioning his own faith. He started wondering how could God permit such cruelty to take place." Where is God now?" God didn't keep up with his promise to take care of people. When all the Jews called for him and prayed for him there was no response, only silence. The only one to keep his promises was Hitler.…

    From the very beginning, Elie, to have a bit of a purpose in the midst of what was happening, decides to be with his father, who is the only remaining member of his family left. “As for me, I was not thinking about death, but I did not want to be separated from my father. We had already suffered so much, borne so much together, this would not be the time to separated” (Wiesel 78). This shows how much Elie cares about his father and wants him to keep on living and make sure they do not get separated from each other, even going as far as to not think about dying, but to just think about his father, also that he was starting to lose interest in anything else but his father. Elie clearly loves his father very much, thinking about everything they have been through, Elie does not want to just give that all up, he thinks that they will make it together to the end and Elie will try to make sure that happens, so that they do not get…

    A Separate Peace Vs Elie

    • 1142 Words
    • 5 Pages

    He faces the decision of either putting himself at risk of death by showing compassion for others, especially his father, or just surviving and having a part of his soul die. He is in the midst of a catch-22, a situation that will end badly no matter what, that he does not realize he cannot win. All of the protagonists face this problem and all of them are looking for the answer but no one is answering them. Elie needs someone to blame for the things that are happening. When his question, “What are You, my God?...How do You compare to this stricken mass gathered to affirm to You their faith, their anger, their defiance? What does Your grandeur mean, Master of the Universe, in the face of all the cowardice, this decay, and this misery?” (Wiesel 66) goes unanswered, he throws the blame at God for leaving him in the dark. Elie cannot comprehend why God is letting all of these people suffer, and he loses faith in Him because of it. He becomes angry at God's silence during the horrible things he is dealing with in his life. Elie needs some kind of guidance to help him to make the right decision but he isn't receiving…
