"You've done well Rainsford"
Rainsford was on his ship when he heard a pistol shot at night and decided to go toward the island, where he heard the shots. He then continued toward the island to see what he can find.I chose the scene because it opens the whole story as well as the scene being the beginning that started it all.
"Nerve, nerve, nerve!"
Rainsford finds a large house where he then meets Ivan, who is a servant and General Zaroff, the owner of the island took Rainsford inside. This scene is important because it's when the main characters are introduced. This creates the whole basis of the story.
"How in God's name did you get here?"
Rainsford finds out that he is not able to leave this deathly island unless he competes in a three day game where he is hunted by General Zaroff. Rainsford outruns Zaroff, Ivan, and their hounds. This scene is the rising action that builds up all of the suspense of what's going to happen.
"He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided."
Rainsford is trapped and has to jump off a cliff into the ocean. He does survive the fall and manages to get back to General Zaroffs bedroom. This scene is important because it is the most major event in the story and this scene plays a role in moving forward because you don't know what Rainsford will do next.
Rainsford manages to ambush Zaroff and they both end up fighting. In the end, whoever wins the final fight sleeps in Zaroffs bed. This scene is important because it is how the game will end and I chose this scene because it is almost finalizing everything that has happened.
The story ended with Rainsford defeating Zaroff and him sleeping in Zaroffs bed enjoying himself. This scene is important because it is the end of everything and I chose it because it is one of the most major events in the story. This scene doesn't play a role in moving forward because it is the end.
