· Nora smiles at two men at the beginning of the story, and William is giving her the evil eye. Does he really not trust her that much?
· When Nora goes to walk on the beach, it reminds me of when we go to Corpus Christi. I love to go and walk on the beach.
· Nora talks about the child as if she is already born. I think that is wonderful.
· “Don’t bother with them, Nora. They’re not our kind” When William says this, it reminds me of my best friend, and her boyfriend.
· Nora seems like an outgoing lady, and likes to mingle. But when she gets caught playing games with James, William builds a wall between the two houses. Does William really not trust her that much?

Before her chemistry lab, I went and talked to her. She said she thought that it was I, but it left her mind after like a millisecond. But just the thought that she thought it was me, it got me upset. We talked for like 5 hours, and everything was cool. I thought that we would be cool forever.
