"The Born Worker''

Author: Gary Soto

Arnie the coward

The character I chose to write about is Arnie. He is spoiled, lazy, and a liar. His parents work in a good paying jobs, so Arnie gets everything he wants. Whenever Arnie is in danger, he's not one to face it, he runs away. He makes his hard working cousin, Jose, do all the work for him and then takes all the credit.


Arnie main conflict is that he only thinks about himself. When Jose is working hard, Arnie is just sitting and eating. Arnie Runs away when the old man falls into the pool meanwhile Jose stays and helps. When the firefighters arrived, Arnie comes back and takes credit for all of it.
