Early that morning, newly hired park ranger, Jennifer Flores, stuffed a banana into the blender and mixed up a high energy chocolate drink. Her dark brown hair was pulled back into a ponytail and her face was clean and free of makeup. She was dressed in a black jogging outfit that hugged her body tightly and showed off her shape. She poured her drink into a glass and guzzled it down like she was in a beer chugging contest with her sorority sisters.

Margot’s classmates display many acts of jealousy throughout the story. Being on Venus their whole lives, Margot’s classmates came to the planet when they were two years old, and don't have any relevant memories of the sun, but Margot has first hand memories of what the sun is like from when she was on Earth. Her classmates had their last encounter with the sun at two years old, and they have long forgotten their memories of the sun, creating this jealousy of Margot’s knowledge. “‘It’s like a penny,’ she said once, eyes closed. ‘No it’s not!’ the children cried. ‘It’s like like a fire,’ she said, ‘in the stove.’ ‘You’re lying, you don’t remember!’ cried the children”(2). As Margot shares memories of the sun with the class, the children deny she remembers, even though they know it's true. Even though Margot’s classmates are jealous of her knowledge, they still cared to listen. Margot has these memories of Earth, which unleashed envy inside the students because she
Once again, Tess is lying in bed being a spoilt brat! Acting like what she is going through is the worst thing in the world, it’s like I don’t even exist anymore, what happened to Fin was just ‘life’, and Daniel has no blame in it. Brendan, Mum and especially Joe think that because Tess and I are sisters, I should be the one to say something, to help her … but what am I supposed to say, that everything is ok, that nobody blames her or Daniel, what happened that night was just a terrible freak ‘accident’. It’s all rubbish, I hate Daniel! My own nephew, for what he did, and of course I blame him, he took my son away from me. As for Tess, she should have done something before his anger problems hurt innocent people. Maybe if she had Fin wouldn’t

“Let’s get in line class, before we head off.” The children arranged themselves in something that resembled a clump. “With your partner, please!”
No the classes in the distance the teacher sees Margot raise her hand. “Yes Margo”, the teacher says how may I help you”? “What What if you didn't get to see the sun”,Margot says. “You Can write why you didn't get to see the sun”,said the teacher.

Imagine this, it’s noon and you’re outside on a beautifully sunny day. Everything is going perfectly swell until suddenly you’re swallowed by an unexpected wave of blistering hot air. You black out and moments, maybe hours later, you regain your conscience and find yourself stranded somewhere in an unnaturally gorgeous island. That’s practically the story of everyone who finds themselves on an island called Nil, and everyone who finds themselves on the mysterious island has exactly a year to leave before they die. On this pretty little island was a girl named Natalie. She was a veteran on Nil and had priority. Having priority meant that you
Remember when your parents told you: it was time to grow up and sleep alone? You liked the thought of growing up to a big boy or big girl, but you were unsure about sleeping in your own bed at night And when you hand a nightmare, or you heard something creeping up the stairs at midnight you got frightened, and when to your parents room and briefly told them what occurred. This same thing happen in Lord of the Flies, except there were no grownups to flee to when there was a conflict and they got
