What we know on Venus: "It has been raining for seven years; upon thousands of days compounded and filled from one end to the other with rain"
"I think the sun is a flower/that blooms for just one hour"
You didn't write that!
Scientific questions of the day: -Will it happen today? -Do the scientists really know?
”You’ve only got two hours, you know. You wouldn't want to get caught out!”
From my interpretations of this story, the teacher is informing the students about the past years on Venus. It has not stopped raining in seven years and they live in a very wet, overgrown community that only may see the sun once in their life time.
Margot reads her poem out loud in front of the class and this boy William doubts everything she says. William also makes fun of her looks and her passion for the sun. Margot hates everything, but once she hears the word ‘sun’ she is then motivated to socialize and play games involving the sun. The other classmates thinks she is lying about the sun that is supposed to come out today according to scientists. The classmates continue to make fun of Margot and lock her in the closet.
Margot was caught out! All the classmates have the best time of their lives while Margot is in a closet in silence. Margot is forgotten about after being bullied and the result is she misses out on the experience. The kids later realize when it starts to rain again that Margot is locked in the closet.
Never let anybody control or doubt you, stand up for what you think is right.
The classmates finally open the door slowly showing their ‘solemn and pale faces’. They are very sorry. All they can hear behind that door when opening it was dead silence. Margot was pale and depressed and sorry for herself. Margot doesn’t get to experience the beautiful son.
It had started to rain again and the girl looked at her palm and realized that Margot was locked in the closet. The girl starts to cry and the rest of the classmates start to feel extremely sad. They then walk slowly to the closet in which they had locked her in.
I decided to make the teacher teach the moral lesson of the story. Margot should have stood up for what she felt was right, she shouldn’t have let any other classmate control her and bully her into the situation she fell into. If you know your opinion is right, secure that and support yourself. Never stay silent.
