The Elevator~ William Sleator
exposition: Martin moves into his new apartment with his dad. But the only problem is that martin has a fear of elevators and he lives on the 17th floor and there was only two ways up stair or elevator and lets just say martin wasn't really into athletic things.
1. Martin meets a fat lady in the elevator and has a creepy feeling about her
2. Martin tell his others but nobody believes him and he doesn't wan to look weak
3. Martin runs up the stairs in desperation and brakes his leg, letting down his dad
Climax: Martin meets the scary fat red headed lady that gives him the creeps for the last time when she meets Martin in the elevator for the last time and greets him with a spine-chilling tone saying "hello Martin" and presses the emergence stop button.
this character is Martin and he influenced the ending of this story because he kept coming back to the elevator when he knew the lady was up to no good.
antagonist: This character is the old lady and she helps influenced to the ending of this story because I believe she purposely attended the elevator at times when she knew Martin would be there as well.
