As he ran through the door of his room all of his worries ran through his head, “What if he doesn’t like me? Does he like Star Wars?” as he tiptoed to the stairs he peeked over the ramp with his short, light brown hair, pale, light deep blue eyes. He slowly, went down the stairs so he wouldn’t see he was nervous, all his worries had went away, as he said “Hi, I’m Rainsford” he stuttered.
“ I’m Whitney” Whitney Responded “Wanna go outside and play with me?” said whiney. “That would be awesome!” Rainsford said with joy, “do you like Star Wars?” stuttered Whitney “no, I LOVE Star Wars!” Rainsford yelled joyfully.

“I remember it like it was yesterday, my dad had gave me some ear muffs and said that it might be a bit loud, but don’t worry. Then he took out my little miniature ‘kid’ gun, I sat down on the picnic table, then my dad helped me hold the gun in place, he told me what I needed to do rules of the gun and how to use it. And then I finally got to shoot the target, yes, it wasn’t an animal but it still was fun shooting a pop can” Rainsford had told Whitney the night after his birthday.The day when Rainsford, Whitney and Rainsfords father went on a hunting trip all together, Whitney's father couldn't make it because of a business trip.

    “Ugh!”, he grunts from how large the suitcase is. “Will you be able to carry that, Scottie?” she says, her face, worn from time, twists with concern for her son. “Of course”, he laughs. “Okay, if you’re sure.” She says as she opens the metal gate to the front yard. They slowly walk through the cracked pathway until they reach the steps to the porch. Beatrice opens the sturdy door with her keys. “Honey, I’m home!” Scottie yells into the empty living room. “Must you do that every time you come inside the house?” She says fondly. “Of course, I must.” He says as if she should already have known the answer. While they were talking, Alice and Jake, Scottie’s younger siblings, heard his announcement and excitedly ran out of their room and down the beige stairs. “Stop making all that racket!” she admonishes her children. “SCOTTIE!” they yell out enthusiastically. “You’re home!” Alice states, full of wonder that her big older brother is finally back where he belongs. “Well, it’s obvious that I’m home unless I’m an imposer who’s secretly an alien”, He jokes, winking at Alice. “I definitely didn’t miss your humor,” Jake lightheartedly says. “Oh, come on, I tell the best jokes”, Scottie says smiling. “Yeah right, in your dreams”, Jake jokingly teases. “Leave your brother alone for right now. He had a long trip and he’s probably exhausted.” Beatrice gently tells to her…

    The Most Dangerous Game

    In the beginning of “The Most Dangerous Game” Rainsford stated “Who cares how a jaguar feels?....They’ve no understanding.” “The Most Dangerous Game” is a short story about how a character believes that animals do not have feelings, just when he, ironically, gets hunted himself, but by a human. The author, Richard Connell, has written various American short stories for all ages. Contrary to Rainsford’s statement, I believe that all animals can reason. If humans cannot understand the language of a bird or a gorilla, it does not mean that they are different from humans and cannot reason or think. Animals can learn languages native to themselves, display deep and meaningful feelings, and most important of all, understand their surroundings and reason, which are all displayed in the articles “Can Animals Think?,” “Are Dolphins Also Persons?,” and the video “A Conversation with Koko”.…

    General Zaroff: Antagonist; Zaroff considers himself a god who can snuff out life as he pleases. Zaroffs’s madness stems from a life of wealth, luxury, and militarism, which inflate his ego and sense of entitlement and impose few limits on his desires. Zaroff began hunting at an early age when he shot his father’s prized turkeys and continually sought out bigger game. His bloodlust and passion for hunting eventually prompted him to hunt men, the most cunning and challenging prey he could find. Accustomed to death, General Zaroff lost the ability to distinguish men from beasts, suggesting that he has slipped into barbarism and lost his humanity. Connell describes Zaroff’s sharp pointed teeth and smacking red lips to dehumanize him and highlight his predatory nature.…

The girls went back to the camp site and roasted marshmallows after a long day while laying back under the stars watching the sky. “I feel like I could do this camping trip all over again” Anna claimed. Just laying her looking up at the sky seeing all the stars covering everything. There’s no mosquitos and it’s so silent tonight. Apart from all the mud we stood in today this trip has been amazing, so many memories and photos that we now have together. The fight that we had brought us closer to each other than we already were. I’ll never forget this trip ever. It made me feel like I was free. Except for when I stood in mud walking back from the showers. I don’t know why they didn’t put a mat or wood over it so no one stood in it. Jess promised Anna that they would have a lot of fun and it’ll be the best camping trip and after all the fights it really was the best you could have ever asked…

    “Dong, Dong, Dong” that was the final bell of 7th grade. The hallways quickly filled with students dashing outside their classrooms. “Alex! Alex, wait for me” I heard a familiar voice cry out. “There you are Stacy, I was starting to wonder if you got run over by the crowd” I frolicked. “So, what did you think of doing this summer?” Shrugging Stacy replied with a simple yet disappointing “I don’t know.” I had come up with many ideas that I was eager to share but I was willing to wait until tonight, at our sleepover. As we made our way across the busy streets of Freemont we started chatting about movies to play tonight. It was the month of June and the sun was scorching hot, I felt as if we were walking close to a volcano that was about to erupt. A blast of cold air hit me as soon as I pushed open the front door. Getting indoors was a great way to escape the heat, and the smell…

    In attempt to entice and lure the reader into reading further, the author of “The Most Dangerous Game” creates a suspenseful mood through the uncertainty and danger in the story. First of all, the described setting played a huge role in developing the tense mood. The island that Rainsford and Whitney approached was supposedly named “Ship-Trap Island,” and as if the name wasn't suspicious enough, Whitney proclaimed that “sailors have a serious dread of the place,” and “The place has a reputation--a bad one.” In addition, the uncanny feeling in the air shot a sudden chill down Rainsfords back. He recited, “What I felt was a--a mental chill; a sort of sudden dread. The use of this eerie environment draws the reader in, in desire to uncover the…

    Is it possible to step into a character shoe and feel whatever they are feeling about a certain conflict? If you think you can’t, literacy and life is as close as you will get to it. I believe the most deep connection you can get with your book is in the morning. I personally enjoy reading on my couch, with the sun just rising. Especially if the book is a comedy. Life and literature are connected through characterization, conflict and narration by life being told through literacy and characterization, conflict and narration help by explaining life.…

    Rainsford’s antagonist, General Zaroff is actually a vampire. This can go either way. Do I think he is a vampire, or do I not? For me the answer is simple. He is not a vampire, since a vampire is a mythical creature that did not exist. Unless we are talking about Vlad the Impaler, who was said to have killed around 75,000 people, and also enjoyed watching people die slow painful deaths, and the smell of blood. So my question to you is, can I convince you that General Zaroff is not a vampire?…

    “Life is for the strong, to be lived by the strong, and, if need be, taken by the strong. The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure….” That was General Zaroff’s reason for hunting humans. The justification was used in both the short piece of fiction The Most Dangerous Game and its cinematic adaptation of the same name. However, there are ways that the versions differentiate. This shows that when a film adapts a short story, there will be both similarities and differences.…
