To Kill a Mockingbird Alternate Ending
To Eliminate a Mockingbird (by. Harper Lee) By: Jacob Coleman Alternate Ending Jem and I strolled through the hollow night of the schoolyard, Jem not caring for my clumsiness in my childish match. “Was I really that bad at the pageant?” I asked. “I discovered it entertaining.” Giggled Jem. Jem’s smirk remark did not make me feel better, so I quickly changed the topic. “Jem it’s too dark outside, I can’t see anything.” I anxiously said. Jem didn’t react, “Jem it’s too dark outside, I can’t see anything.” I duplicated, hoping this time to capture his attention. “Hush.” He whispered. “Can you hear that?” Jem asked. Hear what? I didn’t hear anything.” I responded. “Most likely just the trees movin’ in the wind.” Jem pleaded. We started to walk towards home once again, then I asked “Do you believe Atticus is house?” Jem stopped moving and motioned me to be quiet. “I just heard something.” He said. “What was it?” I asked “It seemed like steps. Someone is following us!” Jem explained. We began shrieking and holding each other, when out of the dark ran Cecil Jacobs. “Haha! Got you men again! You 2 are too simple to terrify!” He exclaimed while chuckling. “Cecil Jacobs, you are absolutely nothing more than an old pig! I screamed. We all had an excellent laugh about it then moved on. We began strolling towards house once again, all of us holding hands so we would not get lost in the night. We were all talking for a while, then I asked “Jem, do you think Atticus will let Cecil remain for the night?” Jem responded with “I don’t see much else Atticus could do, it’s too dark to send him …” When suddenly I feel somebody grab me and throw me to the ground. I felt an acute pain in my leg and I shouted as loud as I could. Someone was on top of me and there was absolutely nothing I might do about it. I heard a requiring voice say “stopped talking girl! The voice was recognizable, it was Bob Ewell. He wouldn’t let me go. Then someone got Mr. Ewell and stated “Let go of scout!” it was Jem! Jem got Mr. Ewell off me and I heard them combating each other. Then I heard Bob Ewell strike Jem and the sound of Jem hitting the ground. I attempted to get up to assist, however the acute pain in my leg was avoiding me from getting up. I started to yell for aid. Bob Ewell got on top of me again and started to touch me and he yelled “stay still lady!” I screamed for Jem, but there was no action. Then all of a sudden, Bob Ewell got taken on off of me.
I could not’ see what was happening but I heard two men battling on the ground. Then I heard among the men yell “Shoot Atticus!” I heard Atticus say “I can’t see much, what if I miss out on?” Then the guy said again “Just Shoot!” Then the exact same man screamed in misery and hit the flooring. On the man’s dying breaths he stated “Atticus shoot the God damn Gun!” That’s when I heard the bang and another body hit the ground. I felt hands choose me up and bring me to their chest, then he stated something, I acknowledged that the voice was Atticus “Don’t fret Scout, whatever is going to be alright. I could inform by his uneasy voice that everything would not be okay, that this awful situation we got in would be all over town quickly. When Atticus brought me home, and shortly right after Mr. Heck Tate was dragin’ in Jem. Jem didn’t look too good, he was just gaining back consciousness and he appears like he has suffered some contusions to his face and a broken arm. Jem’s injuries shortly made me forget that I have lost feeling in my leg, but I decline to look at my leg trigger it would just make me sob. The medical professional came in and ran straight previous Jem, who looked dreadful, and right to me.
He was holding my leg, however speaking with me to keep my attention off my leg. He asked “How are you doing Jean Louise?” “Quite alright sir.” I said “You don’t look alright.” He reacted He offered me a needle and I began to drift off. The last things I saw before I headed out was Atticus pacing around your house while he was talking with Mr. Heck Tate. I heard Mr. Heck say “If it wasn’t for Arthur Radley offering his life to Ward off Bob Ewell, Your kids would be dead today.” Then the physician sidetracked me by informing me “Jean Louise?
You have been stabbed in the leg, we require to take you away for a little while and deal with it to make it better fine?” “Alrigh …” Prior to I might finish my sentence, I was out. When I got up I remained in my bed at home. I attempted to get out of bed, but my leg was still numb. I began to yell, and punching myself; hoping this would be a dream. Aunt Alexandra walked in a stated “Oh hush up!” I asked what had happened. Auntie Alexandra informed me that everything was going to be fine and that I might stroll with a couple days off. I informed her to get me Atticus because she wasn’t going to inform me what really took place.
Atticus was available in and sat beside me on my bed. He slowly put his hand tossed my hair then asked me “How are you feeling Scout?” I told him “great.” Then again asked “Atticus what took place to Boo, Jem and Bob Ewell?” Atticus informed me that Boo lost his life saving mine and Jems, which told me Jem was alright, however for Boo to conserve us without anything in return. He constantly left us things in the tree and we never gave anything back. For everybody to believe he was a beast, however he was actually one of the nicest guys in all of Maycob. Atticus informed me I learned an old stating “Don’t evaluate a book by its cover. “
