Tio Luis's face hardened like a rock and the muscles twitched in his narrow neck. What it means by that is he is upset or mad. When muscles twitch it means your muscles are filled with anger. When his face hardened it meant that he was stoned or shocked with a bit of anger.
Mama my finger. An angry thom stabbed She got cut by a rose. The rose had thorns that were sharp and pointy. She said it was angry she ment they stabbed her in anger and they stabbed her hard.
Her face was so white that it seemed to fade into the sheets, as if she would sink into the bed and disappear forever. It means that the sheets on the bed were white so her face blended in with the white sheets. It also means she was sad and wanted to lay down forever. Mama finally woke up and gave Esperanza The smallest smile.
