Today the short story, The Possibility of Evil was presented to my comp/speech class. The group that picked this story was Joey and Mikayla, but just Joey presented it. This story was probably one of the better ones that we have done so far.
I think that this story had a lot of irony in it considering the main character Adela seemed to be a nice old lady who lived on Pleasant Street, but she turned out to not quite so pleasant. After she would go to town and visit with people, she would write letters about them and then send the letters to them anonymously. The only problem with this procedure was that she dropped one of them, and a young boy found it and turned her in. Some of the citizen's of the town then destroyed her beloved roses.
