Looking through the glass, a car zoomed past the fifteen miles per hour speed limit blasting obnoxiously loud music and laughter. The rusty blue mailbox with the dent in front was still there next to the barren oak tree. Repetitive banging started nearby and I almost fell back. Bright yellow lights were on at the attic window at the house next door. This would usually start about two to three in the morning, but by then, I would usually fall asleep. This was strange considering that the neighborhood considered that house to be vacant. It was assumed that the person who bought the house was using the house as a vacation rental house since every week, a family group or couple would move in with their suitcases and leave at the end of the week. A strange banana yellow car was parked at the front of the house next door. Maybe the owner had come to make repairs? But the question remained as to why they would make repairs in the middle of the

The locusts visiting the village is one of the lighter and happier moments in the story. The author included this rare joyful event to depict the culture of the Ibo people.

In Alabama, in the country, next to a dirt road and a muddy lake that was full of green water, where you couldn’t go to sleep because the frogs croaked too loud, there was a large house. The large house was made of splintery wood, and was inhabited by only one person. Now, the lake that his house was built on had been where a boy named Ronald Pratt had been ran over after removing the bricks from in front of the wheels of a flaming portable, saving the lives of many kids after the portable rolled into the lake and the fire was extinguished. One day, the man who owned the house was in his bed at 8:30 pm and he heard a whisper. He couldn’t make out any words, but he heard it all right. He pulled out a flashlight and grabbed his rifle to go and
Today was a normal day. I woke up bright and early, ate a few of my favorite butternut cookies for breakfast, made a few sales, shined some old rich man's loafers, and just about to as I was about to lockup the old shoe shop at eleven o'clock, I heard a faint yelling sound coming from the road over. I stood by the door with my key still in the lock to feel secure in case something awful was to occur in this situation. Then, just as the yelling had stopped for about five minutes, I heard it again, but this time closer, a lot closer! I bent down in the shop's window so whoever was outside at this late hour wouldn't be able to know that I too was up at this late hour! It got to the point to where I could hear footsteps right outside of the window

Adrenalin filled my veins. I dropped the gas and ran I got in my car and sped off. While Driving down the damp,deserted,and dark street I was wondering why did he want me out of all people why me. I decided to go to a hotel in RealersVille where no one can find me. I paid my fee for my hotel room and speed to room. I dead bolted and locked the door. My heart pounding I sit on my bed and wondered “What is happening?” I woke up but I don't remember anything from yesterday.I walked downstairs and asked for a newspaper the day before the bell hop said “We don't like pranksters here so go back up in your room or leave.” As the mayor of the town before I was disgusted. Now that I think about that I don't even know what this town is called.I go on my phone and I look up FakersVille on the map...It Wasnt there.I hear a knock on my door.I look through the door with the eyes on my pale face.It was the
I had tried everything to avoid being in the house I had laid on the trampoline, I had laid in my room, and I had laid in the bathtub. When at random my aunt came running into the house yelling for my mother. “CPS is looking for Anna. Heather someone reported sexual assault.” and with that my life was flipped upside down. It was a long process of talking to a caseworker and long glares from my mother and eventually our car pulled into the driveway and as they speak of the devil and he shall appear. I was in a full on panic and everything was turned against me I told the cops one thing and mike and my mother would fire back with another. It was still my fault even when the social worker told me it wasn’t, it somehow still became my fault. My aunt stuck by my side most of that day even when my mom told her to get away from me. My own mother didn’t believe me when I needed her most she believed a man who had deceived her and manipulated her to many times. That night mike was told to stay away from the house until further notice and I felt as though I could finally breathe and before I knew it, it was gone again. My mom that night would not speak to me she would glare and shove me out of the way anytime she had something to tell me she would tell my brother to tell me. Before I knew it she
