Extracts from this document...


Of Mice and Men Chapter 7 The sun was low. The sky seemed dull and the trees swayed in the brisk wind, and the leaves rustled. The sound of whistles seemed to echo through the hills and the Gabilan Mountains now looked cold and frightening. The rabbits were burrowing and hiding underground for the night to come. George trundled along the road, accompanied by Slim, rather slowly with past memories going through his mind. Slim finally broke the silence, "You were right to do it George, don't worry." George slowly mumbled a reply, "Mm... Yea..." "Come on lad, we'll go back to the ranch and settle down and we can have a drink of whisky or sumin' before work in the morning." "Yea..."

From the exit of the ranch, you could smell the sorrow of the moment, and dust was drifting off of the orange-coated path. They had a few hours of light left to travel in, so they agreed in beginning their journey. Suddenly, some hooded riders came galloping into view, like a pack of angry bulls, and as they got closer every second, they pulled out their guns and fired. It narrowly missed, and about 10 more riders pulled out their weaponry.
