AMULET Once upon a time there lived a family who was returning from a ceremony on a curvy mountain route. In the car, the family was chatting very loudly. “Emily get up. We are going t o reach our house”said Karen. Suddenly, the father was distracted and didn’t notice a sharp turn in the road. The car flipped and drove off the mountain, as the family screamed.
“Emily get out” said Emily's father David. “Now you go out Karen” said David. “David Come” said Emily’s mother Karen . “i can't come. My leg is stuck in the dashboard. I can’t move”. “David give me your hand”. David gave his hand to Karen but he is not moving. The car was dripping into the valley. “Karen, take care of Emily and Navin. Leave my hand, let go” said David. “David noah” said Karen. David pushed Karen and the car tripped in the valley and blasted.
After three years, the family moved to a house which was in the middle of the forest. When they opened the house. The house belongs to Emily’s grandfather. When they opened the door the house was very dusty. They started cleaning the house. While they were cleaning the house, Emily went to her grandfather’s study room. There she saw a book which was written ‘360 words’ on it. Beneath that it was written ‘Silas secrets’. Emily just touched the word ‘Silas’, a very big light came and an amulet appeared.

Nothing of interest was in the room, only dimly lit candles and trunks of old, moth eaten clothes. She felt as if someone, or something, was watching her, waiting to drag me into the shadows. Then there it was it was she was unsure but almost certain it was a ghost. The ghost was a white cloud like figure and its eyes and mouth were as black as the night sky's. It was more silent than the grave it arose from, staring with heavy lidded eyes and a slack mouth..As Emily turned to leave, “Don't go.” said a gentle voice, “we can be such good friends.” A blue-white glow filled the room making her skin appear paper thin. “Who are you” Emily asked in fear “We met the day I turned twelve. At the train station, you sat across from me with a small smile. Our toes could hardly touch the floor then. I remember being so very close with each other, but I don’t know how after what you did to me” Emily shook her head mutely. She'd been here an hour tops, or this was some nightmare. It wasn't real, how could it be. “Stay with me” the ghost repeated as Emily was trying to find a way out. She shook her head. “Why refuse
The story begins with a lighthearted game of hide and seek between emily, our main character, Caleb, Emily’s little brother, and Abby, her best friend. Hide and seek is emily’s favorite game and plays an important role in the story hence, “Hide and Seek”. After their game has ended and abby has headed home, Emily wakes up in the night to see sirens outside of her home and police shouting “come out of the house”. Frightened she hides under her bed hoping that caleb and her family have done the same. Later, in a police car, emile sees the police take two men and two body bags out of the house. Emily, while expecting her parents to walk out, soon realizes why her parents aren't walking out of the house, her parents had been murdered, and she had been sleeping through the entire ordeal. The two would now have to leave everything and live with the Harmons, a name emily faintly remembers.
“Our parents are never just going to let us go to a cemetery! I said.Wait my mom’s grave is there”.I said.You’re right we can tell your aunt that we’re going to see her.”Emily said. DEAL?......DEAL!After school, we ran into the city bus stop, it’s about an hour drive there so we took the bus.When we got out it was pouring down rain.We waited for the bus to leave,then we had to jump the fence because the cemetery was closed.Once we jumped the fence we ran to the mayor’s grave.OH NO!I thought. The coffin was barred.”What are we going to do now?”Emily said.”I have no clue?”I replied in defeat.”I’m so sorry jade!”She said, touching my shoulder.”NO”I said.”What?” She replied confused.”We can’t give up……………. GO GET ME A SHOVEL!”I said.”Whatever you’re thinking...stop!”Emily said worried.”Just go find me one!”I demanded. “ ……….... FINE!” she replied. When she got back, she handed me one shovel and we both
The next day Emily was to return back to school. Emily knew no one was going to talk to her for a very long time. Emily went shunned for days. She began to fear no one would ever talk to her again. When Emily went home her mom was a lot nicer, she heard of how heard of how hard Emily had it at school and needed some way to aid her. While at school Emily was still shunned and felt terrible kicking a stone down the sidewalk one Friday after school. As Emily walked around the bend she saw that something was different and happy at her house.
Emily’s mom continued to allow Emily to go to the nursery and be mistreated by the teachers there. Emily’s dislike and fear for going to the nursery led her to make excuses such as, “Momma, I feel sick”, “Momma, we can’t go, there was a fire there last night,” Momma, it’s a holiday today, no school, they told me (par. 15).” Her feeling and rational belief that the nursery is a petrifying place, resulted in a hated outlook on school. As a mother instead of looking for alternative care, she decides to give into Emily, and let her stay home affecting her ability to socialize with other children her age.
Emily is isolated from her mother’s touch; she does not get the reassurance she needs that her mother would return for her. Nurseries in this time were very stale and cold; her mother describes it as “…lacerations of group life.” (Olsen) The mental pain is like physical pain that she could feel throughout her little body. The separation of feelings between mother and daughter are so severe that Emily feels as though her heart is torn in two.
The news was never delivered to Emily, her mother would rather let her see her father and let him tell her of his story. Emily was only told what she needed to know, that her father would be returning tonight. Emily immediately began asking questions. Did anything bad happen? Why is he returning so early? She was answered with , you will ask him once he gets here. He arrived later that evening,
The town never saw much of Emily, and they had not been in her house in years. When she passed away, the townspeople got to go into her house, and they found a corpse of guy she had been
Emily Grew Up Too Fast Emily in "I Stand Here Ironing" is portrayed as a dynamic character. She is growing from beginning till the very end and continues after the story with her troubled life. She arguably grows up too fast as she goes from a beautiful baby to a somber neglected young woman. The lack of quality care in her life made her life harder and full of changes as she grew up.
The teacher at the daycare was “evil” and mistreated the children but Emily had to live through the rough treatment. As Emily grew up, her parents started thinking she was independent enough to be left alone, and this terrified her. “Can’t you go some other time Mommy, like tomorrow?” she would ask. “Will it be just a little while you’ll be gone?”
Caroline had her hands around Emily’s neck yelling that she will not abandon her. Emily had to do everything possible to get her mother off her. She tried talking to her but it was no use. Emily’s last resort was to try to push her off her. Once she got her mother off of her, she ran into her father’s office, which had been her safe haven since the years after his passing. Emily knew she had to call the police, she was scared of losing her mom, but it was the right decision for them both. She called and it felt like hours until they arrived when it was really just ten
It was a cold rainy night. Mrs. Fester was making supper for her three kids in their desolate kitchen. Victor, Elizabeth, and Matilda were gathered by the fireplace watching television.“ Supper's ready,” yelled Mrs. Fester. The kids came running into the kitchen. When they sat down their mother started to cry. She had just found out that Mr. Fester had died. She didn’t know how she was going to tell her kids. “What’s wrong mother,” said Victor. “Kids I know this is hard, but your father was coming home from work and he couldn’t see very well because of the rain. He thought he would pull over to the side of the road, so he could wait for the rain to stop. When he started to pull over he didn’t realize he was pulling over to where another

I was not completely surprised by the ending of, “A Rose for Emily”. Initially, as I was reading, there were definite clues that hinted what might happen. The surprise for me was the position in which the body was found and the hair on the pillow. I find it odd that Miss Emily would choose to poison her lover and embrace him while dying. “She was sick for a long time.”
