    The “Turn Up” “Where have you been??” My mentor sighed in disappointment on the other line. I had just got my license in June and by July I had saved up enough to buy my first car. It was a great deal (keeping in mind I work at a car dealership). Someone was going to trade it in and I simply bought it for more. By August, I finally managed to do everything I promised I wouldn’t, and in the end I paid the ultimate price. Totaled my car and learned a great lesson. The festivities were starting early because I managed to earn a whole weekend off from both of my jobs. I decided to spend it by “turning up” with a childhood friend at a couple clubs. We definitely partied. I was literally up all night. Dropped my friend off at six the next morning.…

    In Henry James’ short horror story, The Turn of the Screw, James challenges the reader’s conception of reality and reliability. Moreover, the ambiguity of truth permeating the Governess’ psyche acts as a central motif throughout the story.
