The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street by Athena Johnson
In the story, The Monsters are Due on Maple Street, series of events similar to the theme. The theme that I chose is to never assume. You can guess wrong while trying to solve something, but instead mess everything up. In the first scene/box, it shows Les Goodman being accused of being the monster that everyone believes there is. They assumed it was him because his car had started up by itself. Compared to everyone else's, theirs wouldn't start up at all. In the second box, it shows Charlie shooting Pete Van Horn. Everyone there had seen a figure feet away, they didn't get a closer look at it. It could have had a human silhouette. If they would have let Pete get closer, they would have seen that it was him instead of a figure of a monster. In the third box, they had accused Steve of being the monster. They were turning on everyone else one by one. Steve was trying to help until they grew suspicion towards him. His wife had said that he was making some kind of radio in his basement. That she had never seen. They immediately thought it was a dangerous radio, they were curious as to who he was trying to contact. But in the end of the story, everyone had turned on each other. People ended up running back into their houses or just away from the street. It had turned out that there were monsters, but they weren't among them. They were watching all of them turn on each other.
They had accused Les Goodman of being the monster because of his car turning on.
