    “Aahhhh”, a scream came from the upstairs. I quickly ran up the stairs. I heard two more on my way up. I swung the attic door wide open to see Dana stabbing Mas Ruf. In amazement, not knowing what to do or what was going on, watching her stab Rufus two more times I said, “Dana! What are you doing?” She started to scream, and then she vanished, everything but one of her arms which Mas Ruf was laying on. When she vanished, I went over to check the bloody body of Mas Ruf. He was still breathing I got his attention and asked him, “Mas Ruf what just happened?”. He looked up at me wincing blood dripping from his mouth; he was bleeding out. He managed to mutter, “They were so much alike, I was just…..”, and he was gone. “Mas Ruf! Mas Ruf!” I cried…

    Death can not even clean up the mess it makes after it gets down with its killing, (8-12). It leaves the job to the people left behind because Death does not hold the power to do it. An all powerful being would be able to make a casket and plan a funeral. Death “isn’t strong enough to swat a fly from the air,” (20-21).

    My dad checked out the door leading to the garage. He touched it and hissed in pain at the heat up against his bare hand. Then he opened it, to my horror the smoke barreled inside to our home. Nothing I could tell myself could waver my belief. The house was on fire and we needed to get out now. I sprinted up the stairs in a panic, telling my other brothers “the house is on fire we need to leave now!” Thoughts ran through my head rapidly. I could not decide what to do first. Just run out or grab…

    Twice this year I near froze to death. Both times Alice Mayweather kept me warm. The first time I locked myself out of my house, frost creeping on the windows, I called Alice over, she was always good with these things.

Comfortable silence floated around me as the sun set with pink sky as it’s backdrop. A few…

Both my hands were tied together with rope very securely behind an old wooden chair, my blood in both my hands felt as though it was trapped which caused me to feel the sensation of fireworks in them.

She looked long and hard around the entire room but there were no signs of moved or stolen objects that she could detect other than the crooked painting that she had hung on the door to the bathroom.
