The following afternoon, Elisa finally convinced Elizabeth to go play in the forest. Elisa had an idea to trick Elizabeth into uniting their magic powers. Elisa said to Elizabeth “come, let’s wear our magic’s costumes and let’s try to say our magic words and pull a rabbit out of our hats.” As they prepared their magic trick both girls held hands strong and began to turn in circles chanting their magic words “Alakazam shazam! Alakazam Shazam! Alakazam Shazam! The girls started spinning together, suddenly it became

The short story How I Met My Husband, by Alice Munro, is an excellent example of realistic writing. She uses ordinary and worldly events, actual locations, and a very ironic tone in the story. Alice Munro also uses everyday people for her protagonists, who encounter normal events and emotions. In the story How I Met My Husband, Edie shows the growth from someone who is very naïve to someone who is more realistic.
“The Perfect Match” by Ken Liu begins with Sai, the protagonist, waking up to “Il Sospetto.” The song was played at the exact right time to wake him up making him feel ready for the day. Tilly had chosen the song and when to play it. As the morning progresses and Sai goes into the shower, Tilly begins speaking about a perfect match that she has found for him. It is a girl that Tilly knows Sai will like. Sai trusts Tilly with everything, even picking the correct beverage to have for breakfast. As Sai is leaving his apartment to head to work, we are introduced to another main character, Jenny. She is dressed in a “thick winter coat, ski goggles, and a long, dark scarf that covered her hair and the rest of her face” (Liu). Sai describes Jenny
Scarlet and Missy were walking home from their local Fine Food Market when Missy pulled out a haladie. “Scream and I won’t hesitate to stab you” whispered Missy. Scarlet didn’t know what do. But finally Scarlet said “ I thought you were my best friend, best friends don’t do this”.
There are many different kinds of relationships, and all of them require a commitment and an understanding between people. There are ties of friendship, relationships with family, those that we have with co-workers, and there are relationships in which two people are romantically involved. Regardless of the type of relationship, the desires are the same, to have perfect harmony between all connected. However, since we are human, a perfect relationship usually does not exist. When relationships are broken, or venture upon rocky seas, there comes a time when a person must decide if the union is important enough to work on mending the relationship.
Cupid, being known for love, has greatly influenced today’s society even with his questionable background. In ancient Greece, he originated from Aphrodite. Cupid’s other name was Eros. In Roman times, his name is Cupid and his mother was Venus. His purpose was to to pierce the heart of his victims and causing them fall deeply in love. The most known stories that he was involved in was Apollo and Daphne and Cupid and Psyche. Apollo was shot by Cupid and fell in love with Daphne. Daphne couldn’t stand being bombarded by Apollo. The moral of the story is pride in victory sets one up for defeat; in fact the moral of Cupid and Psyche story is love cannot thrive where there isn’t trust. The resolution to his story is he marries Psyche. Venus supports their love. For Apollo and Daphne, Daphne is now the reason why we have the Laurel Tree.
“Can the past be forgiven? Can people who have been traumatized live with memory and each other again? What do they need to be healed?” (Marrus 27). In a world growing smaller each day, people cannot afford to hold onto the traumas and wrongs that have been committed unto them. At the same time, how can the world ask people who have been tortured, abused, systematically raped, and their lives forever changed to live with their aggressors once again? Can these people forgive their transgressors and come to a place of reconciliation? The steps taken by the Germany after the Second World War give one example of how to acknowledge atrocities. The Holocaust is an example of horrors on a global scale, but despite the scale or length of
Relationships begin and grow through those things that cannot be felt or seen, these intangibles have many names; comfort, support, kindness, trust, love and the list continues. My mother did her best to verbalize these concepts to me from the day I was, however, I was only really able to understand them through her demonstration of these feelings in the way she treated me and day after day and the way I felt all of these emotions for her. The only thing I have ever been able to understand through Sean Rowles is that there is yet another intangible, one that should never be a part of any relationship, one that leaves scares that cannot be seen on the psyche of a person years after the physical end of the relationship, one that is the sole presence remaining when the love, the trust and the kindness are gone, and that intangible is fear, and unfortunately it is the one that most comes to mind when
What does marriage mean? By definition, marriage is “the legal union of a man and a woman as husband and wife” (Webster’s Dictionary). Most people claim that they want their marriage to last a lifetime. Because over half of all marriages in the United States end in a divorce, most people lack the understanding of what it takes to stay married. I believe that couples should become more aware of the commitment that they are making when they enter into marriage.
We live our lives waiting for who we think is the perfect person, but in reality that never happens. When we hear the word relationship, we think of a man and a woman. Being in a relationship is more than just being intimate. There are different kinds of relationship such as husbands and wives, parent and child, or just friend to friend. Some people say it takes two people to make a relationship fail. When two people meet, they usually know from the begining if they want to be with that person or if they want to pursue a relationship.
The law forbidding interracial marriage was terminated in 1967, and in the midst of rapid racial change, one fact is unmistakable: A growing number of Americans are showing that we all can get along by forming relationships and families that cross all color lines. In the past couple decades, the number of interracial marriages has increased dramatically. Interracial dating and marrying is described as the dating or marrying of two people of different races, and it is becoming much more common to do so. Thirty years ago, only one in every 100 children born in the United States was of mixed race. Today, the number is one in 19. In some states, such as California and Washington, the number is closer to one in 10 (Melting Pot).
I met her two years ago and we did not have much to say at that time. Little did I know that she would later steal my heart and become an intimate part of my life. As the saying goes "there is someone for anyone at any time in this life" and I was about to find out that this saying was so true. I have had a wall built around me and my defense was as a stronghold to protect myself from all the relationships that have come and gone over the years. I thought that I was meant to be alone in this old life and happiness was forever gone from me. This wonderful woman I am speaking of is Mary Doe, and the joy she has given me has revived my hope and faith that I may have finally found love and peace within. She has made me feel like I am a child
The love from my family and friends are life’s greatest blessings as each relationship has molded me into the person that I am today. My relationships with my mother, father, Nanna, and my friends Addy and Kirsten are all ones that are meaningful to my life. By focusing on keeping these relationships strong, I, in turn, am rewarded with dependable relationships that I can rely on. To continue the longevity and stability with the following five people that have strongly impacted my life, I must continue to use specific relational maintenance strategies such as rituals and relational currencies.
