The Body Essay, Research Paper
In Castel Rock Maine, There were four boys Vern Tesio, Gordie La Chance, Chris , and Teddy Duchamp.
They have a tree house in a abandon parking lot where they play cards and hang out.
Vern comes and tells the gang that when he was under his portch looking for his penneys that he had burried when he was eight he over heard his brother talking to his friend charlie hogan about the child that was missing but they said that they did it and they said where the body was.
Gordie’s brrother died in car crash.
Gordies parents never paid any attention to Gordie.
There was a story that started in the book,and I didn’t get it. It was a nudity scene, like a story but just started in the middle of the book.
So they each told there mom’s and dad’s that they were camping out in the field when they where realy going to find the dead child.
Chris brought a gun that he stole off of his dads bureau. He let Gordie see it and he told Gordie that it wasn’t loaded. So Gordie pulled the trigger. And KA-BLAM. The gun was loaded and he shot the trashcans behind the diner. The waitress cam out but she thought it was fircrackers.
They started out on there mission walking along the train tracks.
Teddy Duchamp played chicken with the train pretending he was a paratrooper, but Chris pushed him out off the way in the nick of time. They get into a fight but settle it.
They go into the town dump to get a drink of water. It is restrickted to go in there when the dump isn’t open. They fliped to see who goes to the store to get the food. when they fliped they got a goocher which vern says is bad luck, so they flip again ang Gordie looses.
Gordie goes to the store to get the food and he gets in a fight with the clerk about being gipped on the money because when Gordie add it up it came out to be less then what the clerk said.
When Gordie came back to the dump he couldn’t find the guys and he noticed that the owner of the junkyard was here because his car was here. So he tried to make a run to the opposite side of the junk yard. But the man noticed him a sicked his dog Chopper after him. He made it to the other side to find his friends standing there telling him to come on.
The owner of the junk yard was really mad at th kids for trespasing. But the kids just kept calling the owner names.
The owner got realy mad and called Teddy’s dad a looney. Teddy got really mad and said that his dad stormed the beachs of Normady.
They had to cross this train bridge the only problem was that they didn’t know when the next train was due. They started to cross the bridge when they noticed a train was comming so they started running. Vern and Gordie were in the back when chris and Teddy were up front. Chris and Teddy made it easely but Vern and Gordie made it by the skin of the teeth.
Gordie told a story when they camped out. It was about this pie eating contest. This looser in the school was called Lardass. Everyone hated him so he wanted revenge. He ate a egg and some alchole to make him throw-up before the contest. He ate 6 pies and then through-up on the person who was the returning campion. Then everyone started trowing-up.
They took a short cut through a field to make better time.
In there short cut they had to pass a swampy area. when they crossed the water they noticed leaches all over their bodies. Gordie passed out when he found a leach in his underwear.
When they arrived at the dead childs body along came Verns brother billy with his gang wanting to take away the body and get credit it for finding it but Gordie shot the gun into the air and made everyone leave so no one could take credit for finding the body.
The figured the best way to help the police was by a anonymous call to tell them where the body was.
Vern was killed in a house fire in a appartment building in 1966. Teddy went in a car crash. Chris was stabbed in a chicken store. And Gordie is a writer with a family.
