Are you okay? Is there anything I can do to help?
On the farm Jess was milking Bessie the cow. Leslie had moved into the next house over. This was the first time Jess had met Leslie and Jess thought she was a bit akward.
This rope is our bridge to our own world. A place we can express ourselves .
At school, Jess and the boys have a race on the field during recess. Today, Leslie demanded them to let her race, even though girls normally play hopscotch. Everybody was shocked when she ended up winning!
Leslie was being bullied by a group of girls for not owning a TV. Jess sees this and can relate. In the end, they both become friends.
When Leslie and Jess become friends, they create their own world. It is a place to be free and express themselves where they are the rulers. The rulers of Terabithia.
When Jess was not there, Leslie visited Terabithia alone. When she was swinging on the rope, the knot got loose and it slipped off the tree. Leslie fell into the river and died. When Jess heard and saw the news, he was heartbroken.
After Leslie's death, Jess comes back and visits Terabithia and sees sees his younger sister May belle. She is hanging on a tree branch, about to fall! Jess climbs onto another tree and grabs her, saving her life. She promises to be safe and they go home.
