For: Lord of the Flies (English 11)
I remember when i was absolutly terrified of the dark, and guess what? I still am to this day. I don't know what it is, i have gotten over all the other scary things in my life, and now i am just stuck with the fear of the dark. I mean seriously, I get called a scardy cat ALL THE TIME. It's flipping nuts, i wish i could just get over it and realize that nothing is going to get me and it's all in my head. But no, here i sit today; 17 years old and DEATHLY afraid of the dark. I'm not sure exactly what it is about the darkness that makes me so scared, i always think some scary being is going to jump out and get me, or i'm going to be killed suddenly. I remember when i was younger i was way worse than i am now, and my dad was soo mean about it. I lived next to my grandmas house (not even a mile between us) and when i would stay at my grammy's till dark I would never want to walk home. But my dad would make me, so I would RUN sooo fast home, and not stop and kept telling myself to just stare at the porch light. "You can make it..." I'd always tell myself. Then my dad would always jump out and scare me. I hated him so much for that! Uh, so yes I, Jessica, am comletly, utterly, and deathly afraid of the dark.
So, moral of this story is, never leave Jessica out in the dark. haha
