    even more frizzy. She looked over shoulder, to see a group of people gathering around a large bonfire. She skipped over, her fingers wrapped around her opposing wrist as she watched people let out hollers as some girl winced, her wrist band falling into the flames making them roar even higher into the dark sky. Summer watched as they popped wristband after wristband off. She picked at her lips with her fingers, anxiety crawling up her throat, hoping they didn't force her to remove hers. "I'd notice that lip-picking anywhere," a simple and smooth voice boomed in her ear. She turned to look, her eyes falling upon glowing emerald ones. Her lips perked up as he hummed at her, "Summer Connors, the lover of frogs." Summer giggled, her laugh vibrating his ears, "Ethan Cooper, the second lover of frogs." She raised her hand in a fist, as did he and she both did their special secret handshake. Fist bump, fist bump up, fist bump down, fist bump center, and lastly firework. Her smile spread even wider as they made the small explosion sounds, "So, you're really Ethan Cooper." "I really am Ethan Cooper," he confirmed and nudged the girl with his hip. His arms were crossed across his chest as he smiled brightly down to his sidekick. She pushed him slightly back with both her hands, "It's good to see you again, Ethan." Summer beamed up at him, the fire warming and lighting up both of their freckled cheeks. He nodded, his eyes bouncing across the fire as he muttered a soft you too.…

    “And one man in his time plays many parts, / His acts being seven ages. At first the infant, / Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms. / And then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel / And shining morning face, creeping like snail / Unwillingly to school.

The other elephants joined in the mayhem and soon the car was a flattered piece of junk” (146). Thus, Ruskin’s childhood world was full of such hair-raising…
