little girl swallowed by wolf

yesterday a little girl called red ridding hood and her grandmother was eaten by a wolf. the horrible scene took place in the forest nearby near the village.

Yesterday morning a little girl was walking to deliver some cake and vine to her sick grandmother. But on her way she was stopped by a wolf.
“ first I was frightened but he seemed friendly, he asked me where I was going. When I said that I was going to my sick grandmothers house, he gave me the idea to pick up some flowers on my way, so I did” the girl tells.

“The wolf attacked me by suprise” now when the little girl was distracted, the wolf went to the grandmothers house. The grandmother tells that she was lying in the bed when she heard the door being opened.
“ I would never have expected to see the beast who came walking into my bedroom, I just thought it was my grandchild, he attacked me by surprise.” the wolf swallowed the old woman, and took on her close, then he waited for the girl in the grandmothers bed.
Rescued by local lumperjack
Some minutes later the girl arrived to her grandmothers house. She went to the bedroom with the cake and wine from her mother. When she saw the wolf wearing her grandmothers close she thought it was the sweet old woman she knew.
“ she looked very strange, but I just thought it was because she was sick, when I later realized it was the wolf it was too late. I screamed.” luckily a local lumberjack was near the house and heard the little girl scream. He found the wolf sleeping. He and noticed the wolfs big belly and cuts it open with his ask. The girl and the grandmother came out safely.
The wolf however was found dead in the river nearby near the forest.

The most important person we here about otherwise is Tommy’s father Tom Grimes also called Pa. The title first let us believe that Tommy is going to die, literally.

The Death Og Tommy Grimes

...R.J. Meaddough, III, The Death of Tommy Grimes (1962) Tommy had become part of the ground. At least he felt that way as he watched the dew and the daylight make giant shiny cobwebs of the treetops. The sun had not yet risen and a mist lay over the ground, which made the forest seem rather spooky to him. His nose itched and he longed to scratch it, maybe just nudge[1] it a little, but Pa said don’t move, don’t twitch[2], don’t even breathe hard. Not one arm, one hand, even one finger, he said. “He knows the woods,” Pa told him; “you’ll never know he’s there; suddenly he’ll just be there looking at you, just looking.” It started so long ago, Tommy remembered, almost a year, when he was just eleven. That night, in the hen-yard, with the weasel’s[3] eyes glistening in the flashlight. He never even fired a shot, just stood there with his mouth open, foolish, while the weasel dashed[4] into the woods. And Pa knocking the rifle from his hands and asking, “Why didn’t you shoot? What you waiting on? What’s wrong with you, boy?” “Pa, I . . . I couldn’t, Pa. I just couldn’t.” Pa hunkered[5] down and pulled on a blade of grass. He didn’t say anything for a minute, just knelt there chewing on that grass. “You never did like to kill nothing did you, boy? Even when you was small.” Tommy looked at the ground with out saying anything and his father sighed, “Tommy, dammit, a man always dies a little when he kills something, but it just plain has to......

The Death of Tommy Grimes

...Tommy var blevet en del af jorden. I det mindste følte han det sådan, imens han kiggede på duggen og dagslyset som lavede store skinnende spindelvæv over trætoppene. Solen var endnu ikke stået op og en tåge lå over jorden, som fik skoven til at se endnu mere uhyggelig for ham. Hans næse kløede og han længtes efter at klø, bare en lille smule, men Pa sagde ikke flytte, ikke spjæt og ikke træk vejret hårdt. Ikke en arm, en hånd og ikke engang en finger, sagde han. ”Han kender skoven” Pa fortalte ham: ”Du vil aldrig vide at han er her, pludselig vil han kigge på dig, bare kigge.” Det startede for langtid siden huskede Tommy, næsten for et år siden, da han kun var 11år. Den nat i hønsegården med væselts øjne som glinsede i lommelygten. Han affyrede aldrig et skud, stod der bare med munden åben, tåbelig, mens væsel løb ind i skoven igen. Og Pa rev riflen ud af hånden på ham og spurgte ”hvorfor skød du ikke? Hvad venter du på? Hvad er der galt med dig dreng?” Tommy ”Pa, jeg…. Jeg kunne ikke.” Pa knælede ned på den ene balle, og tog et græsstrå. Han sagde ingenting for et minut, han knælede bare imens han tyggede på græsset. ”Du har aldrig kunne lide at slå ihjel, vel dreng? Heller ikke da du var lille.” Tommy kiggede på jorden uden at sige ingenting og hans far sukkede ”Tommy, forhelvede, en mand dør altid lidt når han dræber noget, men det skal bare gøres. Nogle dyr er bare ikke gode og derfor bliver de dræbt, forstået?” Han nikkede uden at svare, stadig kiggende......

The Death of Tommy Grimes Essay

...modern times. Tommy goes hunting in the woods, which is where the action starts. Later it moves on to the bar, where his father is telling his friends about, how brave his son was. In the beginning his father describes the forest particular, the beautiful colors, fresh stream etc. When Tommy is standing there, ready to kill, it is like everything is described in details, and I think it is because it is an important place in the text. The weather and environment reflects to the characters feelings. The sun is shining, when Tommy is waiting the woods, but when he is about to shoot the black man, the sun gets duller and there is a dead silence. I think it is probably because he is scared and nervous. In the end when they are all sitting in the bar, and Tommy is happy, because he is finally one of them, the Mississippi sunshine is mentioned Characters The first persons we are introduced to, is Tommy Grimes and his father Tom. Tommy is a white boy, and I think he is probably 12 years old “Soon they would be calling him Tim Grimes like his father (P.3, Line 6-7)”. It seems like Tommy has a beautiful point of view on life, but his father “brainwashes” him. He wants to grow up and become a real man, just like his father, so he can hang out with him and his friends at the bar. I do not think that he enjoys killing, but it is a duty. After he kills the black person, a part of him dies, like his father told him. He does not think it is that bad. Tommy’s father Tom Grimes is white......

The Death of Tommy Grimes

...The Death of Tommy Grimes The text “The Death of Tommy Grimes” is about the eleven-twelve year old boy Tommy and his father. The story starts of in medias res where we hear about Tommy later in the story, and we get no introduction here. We get the introduction few sentences later in a flashback, where we hear about Tommy’s father trying to instruct Tommy in his shooting skill, but at this moment Tommy just can not pull the trigger. Tommy starts practicing his increasing shooting ability while his father teaches him about hunting, and how the nature cycle, in a metaphorical way, works on earth. In the end of the story, Tommy and his father go hunting, and Tommy ends up shooting a black man – something which makes his father awfully proud, and in the very end he boasts about it in the local bar saying the words, “my boy became a man today” The character Tommy is the protagonist in the story, and he lives in a small village with his father and the other inhabitants. From the descriptions in the text, it sounds like the environment Tommy lives in is very stuffy without any significant contact to the outside world. This is also why Tommy’s father has an enormous influence on him, including the fact that he probably does not know anything else, than what his father tells him. This draw the conclusion, that Tommy is completely dependent on his father, because he is the only source to knowledge about the world. During the action of the story, Tommy goes through a dramatic......

...1 Ligninger Du skal redegøre for løsningsmetoder for ligninger. Herunder også andengradsligninger. Ligninger med én ubekendt: En ligning med én ubekendt er et udtryk med en variabel (oftest x) og et lighedstegn. En løsning til ligningen er en værdi for den variable (x), der giver samme resultat på begge sider af lighedstegnet. Der findes mange forskellige ligninger, båge enkle og vanskelige ligninger. En af de enkle ligninger er: x-4=5 Løsningen er det x der gør at venstresiden (3x+4) er lig højresiden (7). I praksis løser man ligninger ved at isolere x på den ene side af lighedstegnet. Regler for omformning af ligninger: Det er tilladt at: * Lægge samme tal eller ubekendt/variabel til på begge sider af lighedstegnet. * Trække samme tal eller ubekendt/variabel fra på begge sider af lighedstegnet. * Gange med samme tal eller ubekendt/variabel på begge sider af lighedstegnet, blot tallet ikke er nul eller den ubekendte/variablen ikke har værdien nul. * Dividere med samme tal eller ubekendt/variabel på begge sider af lighedstegnet, blot tallet ikke er nul eller den ubekendte/variablen ikke har værdien nul. Når vi jeg hjælp af reglerne for omformning af ligninger omformer en ligning til en anden, bruger jeg dobbeltpilen , som her: x-4=5 x=5+4 x=9 Se matematikbog side 20 og 21, for eksempler. To ligninger med to ubekendte: Hvis to variable (x og y) optræder i to ligninger der er sammenhørende kan de værdier af x og y der opfylder begge ligninger i...

The Death of Tommy Grimes

...Tommy Grimes: Tommy is a 12 year old boy, who lives somewhere in the U.S.A with both his parents (probably in Mississippi, line 8 page 45). The whole story is taking place in a time before the civil war (before 1861). Hunting plays a vital role in the community Tommy lives in. Despite his father, “the boys” and the rest of the society, Tommy doesn’t like killing. (I can tell from line 6-15 on page 39). Tommy’s father is aware of that (as seen on line 19-20 page 39) and obviously he gets a little embarrassed when the other men bragged about their boys being good hunters (seen on line 26-28 page 40). Tommy realizes that, and in order to fit in, and be a part of the community (consisting of his father, “the boys” and all the other hunters in the village) he needs to accept the fact “that some varmints do damage and just plain got to be killed”. Tommy wants to make his father proud, so he eagerly starts practicing shooting with the rifle. After a while, Tommy is ready to see if he is able to make his first kill. He goes out buck hunting with his father. He managed to kill a runaway-slave with a shot that pierced right through the heart of the slave. – This is even better than killing a predator, and the above-mentioned situation results, that Tommy finally gets accepted as a man. Even though Tommy wasn’t quite happy about killing the slave, he is overwhelmed with pride....
