The Secluded Lot

Exposition: “I would like to inquire about a lot” the old man said. Pg. 115

Rising action: I’d like a good view, but more important, privacy. Pg. 116

Rising action: “then it’s settled” Mr. Jerome hastened to close the deal. “The contract can be worded to accord with your wishes”. “My last wished” the old man said. Pg.118

Rising action: on the other side of the thicket he was surprised to find Mr. Blake snooping over a high, square, white box intent on fixing something. A bee circled slowly overhead, and then dove for its target. Ouch! Yelled Mr. Jerome. That cursed bee stung me! Pg. 119

Climax: “How dare you operate a beehive in this cemetery?” ”it’s on my property. I purchased it did I not?”  Pg. 119

Falling action: you sell the honey? Jerome was shocked. Maybe it was just beginner’s luck, old man Blake replied modestly. Pg. 20

Falling action: Oh, no! Jerome’s well-modulated voice rose to a shout: look here, I won’t have it. You must stop this at once! Pg. 120

Resolution: Mr. Jerome, I have reached an important decision: I should like to buy another lot. Pg. 121
