The Elevator, by William Sleator.
Let me go with you. I want to visit her, too.
Afraid to be on the elevator alone. Grow up Martin.
What are you doing? You’re not getting off, are you?
“I promised Terry Ullman I’d drop in on her
Martin hobbled to the buttons and pressed nine, but it didn't do any good. The elevator stopped at ten, where the fat lady was waiting for him. She moved in quickly; he was to slow to unsteady on his crutches to work his way past her in time. The door sealed them in; the elevator started up.
Then she pushed the Stop button.
Hello Martin. Hahahahaha!
Martins and his dad are having a argument. Martins dad is also scolding him.
The Elevator. A Fiction Story, By William Sleator.
The main charecter is Martin. The secondary charecters are the fat lady and his dad.
The story is all framed around that Martin is afraid of elevators.
The text box is describing what Martin is doing in the elevator.
The problem was that Martin is afraid of elevators. The problem was not solved.
Martin does not know the fat lady and he thinks the fat lady is evil. But the fat lady is bad and pushing the stop button in bettween floors.
Most of it happened in a very old and creaky elevator. The rest of it was at Martin's appartment.
A theme in The Elevator by William Sleator was ton be brave to try to get over your fears.
