"That was a real pretty dance, that dance they just did."
"That dance-it was nice."
"If you see this boy, do not- I repeat, do not- try to reason with him!"
" I am the Emperor! Do you hear? I am the Emperor!"
In the exposition, the story introduces two characters named Hazel and George. They have a son named Harrison, who was taken to jail at 14 years old. This scene is when the ballerinas are on the television, and George and Hazel are talking. It introduces us to the life of Hazel and George in 2081.
In the rising action, Hazel and George find out that their son Harrison has escaped from jail. This is a big problem for them because it means that Harrison might be in trouble and could be punished.
The conflict is when Harrison barges into the room and tries to take over the government. He tries to become the Emperor and is trying to get people on his side. This is not good because Harrison is making an attempt to over rule the government and might get into some serious trouble.
The theme is Differences are not always a bad thing The author is trying to show us that it is okay to be different. In the society in the story, everyone was equal. No one had more or less things than anyone else, and everyone looked the same. She is trying to tell us that difference can be a good thing. It is an important thing in society to learn this now so that we can know what can happen if people don't embrace their difference.
The falling action is when Harrison tries to get people on his side and gets killed because of it. The government does not want this to happen because it would ruin the society that they have created and people would start to fight against them. In the text, it states that "She fired twice, and the Emperor and Empress were dead before they hit the floor." That proves that the government did not want them to fight.
The solution is when the HG makes evryone forget about the situation. The government is safe now and no one can fight against them anymore. Harrison's family forgets and everything goes back to normal.
