Afterwards, the played dress up. The pretended to go shopping, being Mom and Daughter. However, there was a small argument about who would be Mom. It was not the only tiff they had. There were several, but they always managed to compromise and continue play. They played for about 45 minutes until Isabel’s friend’s mom came to pick her up. They were both very disappointed that it was time for the friend to leave. They asked for sleep over’s but this day was not good. The friend began to cry because she did not want to leave. They pleaded for more time. Both Moms explained they could play another day and that next time Isabel could go over to friend’s house and do manicures. They were very happy with that arrangement.
“Well, you know, mom, there are other ways to enjoy yourself... without dad.” The utopian ambience of the town of Pleasantville is thrown into disorder when it is visited by two siblings from the real world. David is your typical high school geek - a teen obsessed with a TV show (Pleasantville) and a social ‘loser’. His sister, on the other hand, is only concerned with getting intimate with the attractive boys at her school. The actions from both of these teens go against the norm in Pleasantville and causes the perfectly ordered black and white town to become illuminated with colour. Colour has a profound effect on the lives of people in Pleasantville - the prosaic town ends up having to face issues such as racism, separating itself from conformity,
“Oh I see where we took a wrong turn,” Kelley sighed with relief, “We have to take a right and then go straight all the way to that bridge.” They began walking, all relieved that they found a way out of the sticky situation that they were in. “I see our mom,” Will announced as they walked up towards their mom. Finally they reached Kelley and Will’s mom, “Why do you all look so nervous and sweaty?” Their mom questioned. All four of them laughed, “Just a bit nervous from the rides,” Makayla stuttered with an uneasy look on her face. Kelley and Will’s mom just looked at them and replied with, “Alright well it’s about 3 o’clock now, we have about four to five hours left before we need to leave so when it is 6:30 come and meet me back here and then we can leave.” Kelley nodded in agreement and laughed, “Yes ma'am.” Several hours passed by and it was now time for these four crazy teens to get going, “I’m so glad we found that map,” Kristin stated as her and Will walked out the exit gate. “Me too, I don’t know what we would of done without that map,” he whispered

They had called me downstairs - an unexpected request for that early Saturday afternoon. I entered the family room to see them sitting side by side as he motioned for me to sit across from them. I looked into my parent's eyes with a dead stare, anxious to find out what this was all about. "We have to relocate to Chile before the end of the year,” my father explained with no hesitation. “Nick, you're going to have to finish high school there."
It was a warm friday in the middle of June and Nora phillips just graduated. Nora is an 18 year old girl with long, silky, brown hair and bright blue eyes, a blue eyed beauty, her mother always called her when she was younger. She was tall and slim.

Her birthday was today, and she was about to move out from living with her parents. She loved her parents Karen and Bryce Phillips, but it was time for her to leave. She was going to college soon, and Nora was accepted into New York University. She was about to become an adult soon, and she was very excited. She had dreamed of college all her life,
The first sentences: “The week before I left my family and Florida and the rest of my minor life to go to boarding school in Alabama, my mother insisted on throwing me a going-away party. To say that I had low expectations would be to underestimate the matter dramatically. Although I was more or less forced to invite all my “school friends”, i.e the ragtag bunch of drama people and English geeks I sat with by social necessity in the cavernous cafeteria of my public school. I know they wouldn’t come.”
My First Experience with Racism I recall a summer day in 1989 when I played the game of hid and go seek with my new friends Tabitha and Jordan. Horten Gardens was a community that existed in a middle and upper class neighborhood in Millington, TN that my mom chose
It’s finally time. The kids are out for an entire week for spring break. Lucy had been waiting for this moment for months. She could finally take a break from being a cosmetologist and have fun. Lucy had already planned the trip months in preparation, but she couldn’t believe the day had finally come. She was going to Disney World again, except this time as an adult. While Lucy was very excited, she knew her kids were even happier to be going. They decided to go to sleep really early the night before because Orlando, Florida, where Disney World is, is very far from Brooklyn, New York. They left at 4:00 A.M. for the long and horrendous car ride that they would be experiencing.
After the Homecoming game, the star quarterback, Weston, wants to celebrate after the big win. His best friend told him that he was having a party, so he showered and grabbed some grub from the kitchen. “Wes, where are you going?” his mom asks. “Brandon’s.” Weston responds. “Who’s all going? Will his parents be there? There won’t be alcohol, will there?” asks his mom with a nervous look. “Mother,” Weston yells “You’re so annoying just shut up. I’m leaving.” His mother looks at him, with tears in her eyes. Little did Weston know that those were the last words he will ever tell her. He hops into his gray truck and heads over to Brandon’s. Once he arrives, he sees his girlfriend, Lindsey and walks over to her. Weston explains how annoying his
It was a crisp October morning. One quite like the morning I am compiling this story. I was a young girl, only nine years of age, in the fourth grade. My grade was taking a field trip to Adobe in Downtown San José. It was all smiles and laughter in the car on the way there. My classmates Jillian, Stella, Connor, and Ryan rode with me on the way to Adobe in Ryan’s mom’s car. Keep Jillian in the back of your mind during this story because she is rather important. After a fun-filled ride in the car with jokes and fun games galore, we arrived at Adobe. It was a rather tedious trip filled with artifacts and history that I didn't have much interest in. My fourth grade attention span could only hold out for so long. The time during this field trip
Carla looked in the mirror at herself admiring her model slim body, voluminous bouncy blonde curls, and stunning green eyes. She had always gotten what she wanted, but she knew that was not going to happen this time no matter what she tried. She vowed to make her aunt’s life a living nightmare the entire time she was there. The maids loaded all of her stuff into the car, so it would be ready for Carla when she arrived tomorrow. The next morning Carla was awakened by the sun’s bright rays shining through her bedroom window. She knew today was the day she left her lavish
Tam Le Instructor: Jennifer Vacca ENGL 2307 2 December 2014 WC: 4090 Portfolio II: Fiction Road Trip The scorching sun was up, and everyone could not help but complain about the hot summer. Since the previous day, the weather has been only favorable for outdoors. We live in this small town, Rockville, in the Southwest with minimal population. The town’s development and interest in national matters is minimal and there is little regard for politics. Only a notable number of citizens have interests in technology and most of the town’s population consists of old men and women. The fabric that holds the town together is a specific type of culture whereby most parents adhere to conservative parenting.
“Well. I guess we 're all gonna die.” says one of the girls standing by the TV. I don 't know her name. I didn 't want to learn these people 's names. I didn 't want to hear their story. It would depress me further and remind me of my family. I lost them in a car accident a year and a half ago, and I haven 't really felt happiness since then. And on my birthday in a week, I 'm turning 18 and getting the heck out of this place. I don 't know where I 'll go, but it 's not here.
“Vanessa dinner is ready,” her mom yells from the kitchen. “One second mother, I’m busy talking to Emily,” She yells. Vanessa scrambles down the stairs 20 minutes later. Her two younger twin brothers expressions tell her something is not right. “Vanessa sit down sweetheart,” her father motions her into her seat, her meal cold in front of her. “We will be moving in three weeks,” Her jaw dropped to the ground. “Where to?” “Why?”
