The Lost Boy
"Before you act, think what could happen."
"No! It's not! Ryder choked on his words. He could barely breathe. 'My mom is going to die!"
Have you ever had a evil thought in your brain you were dying to do or say? Was there anyone that got you so mad? Well before you act think about it. This means that when you are about to do something bad like for instance, post something bad about your friend or go in a fight with him/her. Think about what could happen. For example, if you were going to do something bad like post something on the internet. There could be side effects like starting a rumor. Also if you were going to start a fight, what if you got yourself in big trouble? What if you got the other person seriously injured? These are all the things you should keep in mind when you are planning to do something bad. In the book it said "No! It's not! Ryder choked on his words. He could barley breathe. 'My mom's going to die." In that statement made by Ryder you can see that the he was filled with regret because of what he had done. His mom was in the hospital now because of what he had done. He now felt sad and angry because of what he had done for a bad reason. So when you are going to do some thing bad always thing about what could happen because it could really help you from doing something horrible and could save you from trouble. So remember, before you act, think about what could happen.
