Tell It / Tweet It – The Disease is here to stay (Revised)

For this week, I  decided to tweak this assignment from Week 3. I believe that I could have used better language to and more description to add content to the story I was telling. Here is my new submission.

 

The financial crisis is the least of our worries at this point. The stock market is purely reacting the signs of a major disease outbreak. The one thing that has feared people for years is finally happening.

I still can’t believe that from the start that this wasn’t taken seriously. When the cruise ship arrived at the dock, there is no reason why those people should have been off loaded onto land. For days we heard on the news that an extreme illness was reported on the shipment. Why weren’t the authorities proactive in their handling of this situation. Given the death and brutal outcome of the cruise ship, how did they just let people take to the streets immediately when they returned?

For weeks now, every citizen in the United States has kept their eyes glued to the TV. Each person waiting to see if a report comes out about a new discovery of an infection in their area. Schools are closed and businesses are shut down. Nobody knows where this mysterious disease came from. The CDC is searching for answers but their silence has given fear in everyone’s soul. The powers of the world including Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk are even struggling to face the public. These cowards are running to their fancy bunkers while us “regular” citizens sit here and wait to die!

Up-Goer Five Your Writing

Hello Everyone.

This past week was crazy! My dad was walking to the train and got hit by a car. The guy in the car did not stop and kept driving away. My dad called me and I picked him up and went to the hospital. He was checked over and everything was good. We called the police and they found the guy who hit my dad. I am sad that the guy would do this to my dad. I am happy that he is well.

Alternative Ending: A Boy and His Dog

I truly enjoyed reading A Boy and His Dog. This short story created very strong imagery in my head. I have missed this part that fictional stories can create in the imagination. Here below I will list the original ending of the story, followed by the alternative ending that I create. Please Let me know what you guys think!

Original ending

“She got a pouty look on her face, “if you love me, you’ll come on!” I couldn’t make it alone out there without him. I knew it. If i loved her, She asked me, in the boiler, do you know what love is……”

My alternative ending

“She got a pouty look on her face, “if you love me, you’ll come on!” I couldn’t make it alone out there without him. I knew it. If i loved her, She asked me, in the boiler, do you know what love is.?

As I turned to face her, she put a knife right against my neck. I was in complete shock. “I will murder us both” she said to me with a craze look in her eye. “We either move on together or we both leave this planet” As I felt the knife digging deeper into my neck, I saw out of the corner of my eye that blood has stood up and leaned down in attack position. I moved my body so her back faced blood and within a second, blood pounced on back and dug his teeth into her neck. As she released me, I turned to see her legs kicking in the air as Blood used every ounce of his strength to end her life. Her leg movement came to a sudden stop as blood worked his way to heart.

Never in my life have I seen such an event of loyalty. I was never going to leave Blood behind. Nothing could get between my relationship with my dog.
