  • Really? I feel like I'm trapped in tartarus and being guarded by cerberus, with no hope of escape.
  • Hello young one. I understand that right now it feels like you have a hardknock life, but it will get better.
  • That is a good idea.
  • Try changing your outfit to match your personality better. You aren't trapped by your mother anymore.
  • But what if mother finds me. I'll be done for. What do I do?
  • Oh No! This poor mouse is hurt, I was going to finally change my outfit but I have to help this mouse before that.
  • All of a sudden, a nature spirit appeared.This is an allusion to mythology, he says he feels as though he is is trapped in tartarus and being guarded by cerberus, cerberus is a three headed dog who in greek mythology guards the entrace to tartarus, the ultimate prison for demons and other nasty creatures.This also alludes to the musical and movie ANNIE, referencing the famous number "A Hardknock Life" a song about the wretched conditions in which a number of orphans live.

  • This is indirect characterization through thought, the ninja worries to himself what might happen if his mother found him and learned that he changed his clothes.
  • Now I need to build up the courage and confidence to change my clothes and completely cut my ties with my mother. I need to be like Rosa Parks. Courageous and Brave.
  • This is indirect characterization through actions, (this is finished in the next slide where we see him after the mouse has been healed) we see his caring side revealed by his caring for the health of a single mouse, he is worried and helps it even though he has never seen this mouse before.
