Foreshadowing. Foreshadowing is a hint, clue that is displayed within a story, about something that’ll alter happen within the story. Foreshadowing helps us, the readers, understand the flow of a story, by how it’ll will end. For example, let’s say you’re in a dark alley. You meet a suspicious man dressed in black. He speaks upon you, “One by one they will fall.” You’re not sure what he meant at the moment. But, after a few weeks passed you discover your brother has died. Then a few more weeks your sister. Then your father, mother, aunt and more. You find this very suspicious. You then recall the guy u met in the alley. “One by one they will fall”, you repeat to yourself. There’s no other way. He is responsible for this. The story “The Landlady” gives a good example of foreshadowing.

The forest behind Aiden's house were thick, and stretched on for miles. Tall pines, maples, and oaks reached up from the ground, their green and scarlet tipped fingers scraping the sky. Green-gold morning light filtered through the dense canopy above his head, and a few early fallen leaves crunched beneath his feet. A lazy stream trickled its way through the tangle of roots and heavy underbrush, gurgling softly as it went; the scales of small fish flashing below its crystal surface.
