_________________________

_________________________


Solution

a dark moonless night

There were only a few pricks of fire (stars) in the night sky.

The night was still, windless and clear, as a result of which, every sound was distinct and intensified.

The bark of a dog all the way at Delmonden could be clearly heard in the woods.

As Peter walked on the road, he could hear the echo of his own footsteps sounding like a death knell.

The roadside, being a mass of thorns, crackled and rustled as loud as the thud of the man‟s feet.



Discuss with your partner and describe the atmosphere in the woods when Peter Crouch didn’t knock before entering Mrs. Adis’s house.

The reason was - 

_________________________

_________________________



Solution

Peter Crouch didn't knock before entering Mrs. Adis' house because:

He was in trouble and did not want anyone to hear or know that he was there.

He was in a state of panic as his hands were shaking a little.

He had committed the crime of shooting a man.



Go through the text again and find the reasons that forced Peter to shoot down a person.

The keepers spotted him.

Solution

The keepers spotted him.

He was outnumbered four to one.

It was too dark and seeing all those people had scared Peter.

_________________

_________________

_________________


Solution

Mrs. Adis didn't hand over Peter Crouch to the keepers because –

She had forgiven him for unknowingly killing her son.

She knew that Peter would have never harmed her son otherwise.

She knew that punishing Peter would not bring her son back; but at least by not handing him over to the keepers, she would be giving him a chance to lead life the right way.

Mrs. Adis must have thought that her son would have wanted Peter to have a second chance; so in a way, she fulfilled her son's wish.

Concluding part


Solution


Omkar:

Hey, Raj! Are you in a hurry? I need to talk. It's important and urgent.

Myself:

Omu! I'm actually getting late for class. But tell me what happened.

Omkar:

Nothing happened as such. I just did something terrible. I don't understand what to do now. I'm in a pickle!

Myself:

Tell me what you did. We can figure out a way to solve the problem. That's what brothers are for!

Omkar:

I stole money from our mother's purse. The delivery man was waiting by the door and she asked me to get some money to pay for the parcel. I opened her purse and assumed she wouldn't know if a few extra notes went missing.

Myself:

You stole money! Why would you, Omu? You're only 12. What did you need the money for? Is it for that board game you wanted?

Omkar: 

I know! I know what I've done isn't right. I feel ashamed. Mother has been looking for the missing cash for over 3 days now and it turns out it was kept aside for an important payment. I'm drowning in guilt! Please tell me what to do.

Myself:

You need to own up to your mistake. You have to take responsibility for what you did. You should not let others suffer for your mistake. Here's what you need to do. Go to mom and tell her what you did. Also, tell her the exact amount that you stole, so she can account for the same. Do you have the money with you?

Omkar:

Well, I spent a large portion of it already, but I have some left. Do you think she'll be okay if I returned what I have left?

Myself:

No, I don't think she will be okay with this. But at least she will be relieved to know where the money went. She will be mad at you for stealing, but after some time, she will forgive you, knowing that you were honest enough to come clean for what you did. Return the money that is left. Ask her if you could help her with some chores that you don't already do. Don't offer it because you're trying to pay back, offer help because you feel bad for what you did, and want to do something good. Okay?

Omkar:

Yes. But I'm so scared! I guess that is the only option. Can I confess to her after you're back? I think I'll be less scared if you are around. Please?

Myself:

Okay. I'll be back in 4 hours. You better not try to get out of confessing. I'll see you later.

Omkar:

Yes. Bye for now.

Solution

Forgiveness provides an opportunity to change behaviour.

Forgiveness leads to repentance.

A person may commit a mistake/crime impulsively or under the force of strong emotions.

Forgiveness is the beginning of the healing of the wounds inflicted by someone.

Forgiveness is a sign of compassion, as it helps a person move past the feelings of anger as well as hatred and understand the reasons behind the other person‟s actions.
