FC: Arthur the Mockingbird
1: My name is Boo Radley. My official name is Arthur. When I was a boy, I was just like everyone else. I had friends, I had fun, I had a life, but most importantly I had freedom.
2: Brothers | My family is what keeps me sane in this incredibly boring life of mine. Most importantly, my father;Many believe that he is a bad person. I know for a fact, that he is one of the most responsible people in Maycomb. Although he did lock me in the courthouse basement, he did it to help me be a better person in the end. Second, I feel I must write of my mother. I loved her so much. Many believe that she was just here to sweep the porch, she did much more than that. She kept this family together. Lastly, I must write about my brother, he is my only family member left. He is what keeps us here, he goes to work, he gets a paycheck, and he provides the food.
3: Scout, a beautiful young girl who is very adventurous, is one of the most important people in my life. Even though she has no idea I keep watch on her and her brother, I learn a lot from them. Kids like them have a different way of seeing things and they are not corrupted yet. I enjoy thinking of what the world looks like through her eyes.
4: Jem, Scout's brother, is a very level headed boy; just like his father Atticus. He is just beginning to understand the world and its ways. He reminds me of myself, actually, and I wish the best of luck to him in his fight against the world.
5: My ‘friends’ came up to my house and told me they had to show me something. Naturally, I went along. Big mistake. I followed them to one of our bases, that we had set up. When I arrived, they told me that they were going to rob a store with a knife one of them got from their father. At the time, they made it sound like a good deal. We would get some money, and we could get any candy we wanted. We went to the store and the leader of our group takes out the knife and tells the store clerk to stand back and to not bother us. The clerk pulls a shotgun and calls the sheriff. Long story short, we ended up in jail, or in the courthouse basement in my case.
6: One Halloween night Jem and Scout were attacked by Mr.Ewell. I pulled him off of them and he fell on his knife. The kids made it home and I went to check on them. This was the most terrifying moment of my life; yet a great one because I met those two wonderful children.
7: While I am stuck in this house, I do many things to pass the time. Such as whittling. I make many kinds of sculptures. I can make birds, planes, cars, anything. Those little sculptures are very important to me.
8: I use to have a very nice watch that my grandfather gave to me before he passed away. It is broken now, but it was the nicest watch one could get at the time. I loved him and that watch is just another thing to remember him with; I hope Jem and and Scout can fix it, for I gave it to them as a gift.
9: "Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up people's gardens, don't nest in corncribs,they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."
