"So, Lorrie, did Roger mention to you that I'm quitting my job?"
[He] hadn't said a thing about it! How could he have gone on and on about highschool when this was happening?
Progress report #3 Theme By Sofia Mazziotti
Theme Development #2
The most prominent theme within One Shot is the acceptance of change. This theme begins development as Lorrie's dad had remarried and the two had moved in with Elaine, her new stepmother. The them continues to develop as Lorrie is introduced to new people and situations unfamiliar to her.
Theme Development #3
"I'm glad to meet you, Ms. Price."
The theme is introduced to the reader when Lorrie is woken up by her stepmother, Elaine, when she was sunbathing by their pool. Elaine had told Lorrie she was quitting her job after bringing her snacks and sitting with her.
The theme of acceptance of change continues to develop a few days later, Lorrie's cousin, Sarah, returns from her vacation. Lorrie wanted to surprise Sarah at the riding stables, but ran into the stable manager, Thomas. After a Sarah comes back from her trail ride, Thomas and her try to convince Lorrie to try riding again. Lorrie is stuck in the past as she was thrown and dragged by a horse when she was young and never got back in the saddle. Later, Elaine also attpemts to convince Lorrie to try lessons again
"It's just one lesson" ... "Thomas is concerned - very concerned - that you never got back up on that horse after you were thrown."
The theme develops farther as Lorrie gets a job with a famous photographer named Molly Price. Lorrie took a while to warm up to the concept of the job, but accepted it with some convincing from Elaine.
"Molly. It's Molly. No one calls me Ms. anything."
My predicition for the resoultion to the theme within the story is because every part that developed the theme involved Elaine interacting with Lorrie, I belive something will happen to cause a rift to be created between the two but will be resolved with the help of Lorries friends and her father.
