Saliva on my face from no other than Bob Ewell himself. He swore he would “seek revenge on me”. His anger towards me does not shock me, neither does his irrational response. He has a drunken soul and the first time I ever saw him walk straight was in that court room. Scout, Jem, and Alexandra are all frightened now watching their every move, overthinking the whole situation. I am not worried, and I told them not to be either. I would have much rather told Scout and Jem about this situation myself, but you can not prevent your kids from hearing the rumor mill that runs out of Miss Stephanie's mouth. The fact he has the audacity to come after me, after winning the case in the first places appalls me. He should be the one sitting in that jail cell right now, not innocent Tom Robinson. He got his anger and his need to always be right out by spitting on me. He does not have the manpower or confidence to come after me again, and I am sure of it.
I enjoyed this assignment of taking an important scene and writing it in a different characters point of view rather than just Scout. The whole book of To Kill A Mockingbird is told through the eyes and viewpoint of Scout. While reading the book, the reader can never be sure what the other characters are feeling, only what Scout sees in them. Doing this assignment allowed us the readers to express what we feel the other characters in the book were feeling through important events. I think this project was also important because as stated earlier the readers were never given the chance to see the story in a other characters point of view. I enjoyed the creative writing aspect of this assignment, because it is not something we are given the chance to do a lot. Overall I really enjoyed this project and I hope to do more like this project in the future.
