Good Essays
Monday, the start of yet another school day. Another day where he 's absent. Another day not learning anything. Another day where he won 't see and talk to his friends again.

"Really?" The nurse asks.

The boy didn 't feel like answering, feeling as if she knows what he 's going to say. The nurse ends up giggling and pets the other 's head. The boy then realized that the nurse just borrowed these so that he could wash away the boredom, silence, and dread haunting him 24/7.

    His fear had something to do with the movie, Attack of the Homicidal Creepy-Crawlers, and a seventy-two-hour spook-a-thon. “Then we heard this.” I set my voice recorder on the desk and fast-forwarded to the creepy shrieks. “The rest is just us talking to the men we met at the house.” Twist’s shocked expression was replaced by intrigue.

    Even though his parents were not loving in the matter he needed and desired, he still found comfort and even surrogacy in Carine. She states that they learned to count on one another (Krakauer 107) and he states in a letter to her that she is was the only person that could possibly understand him (Krakauer 129).

    In reality, it is very weird and unreasonable to see that people usually treat their friends better than their family. When there is a problem, people used to talk to their friends patiently and calmly, but when they discuss the problem with their parents, they lose their patient and calm, turning to be emotional and even yell at their parents if disagreement occurs. This is very real and I think it is quite sad to realize this. Maybe we think our family will never abandon us, so we lost our courtesy. Maybe we know our parents will always forgive us, so we lost our patient.…
