theme of two brothers
i'm looking for an answer here.. but it seems that i found none
Here is a summary of The Centipede by Rony V. Diaz: Eddie is a little kid who often gets picked on by his sister. Hedescribes a time when he went into her dollhouse and broke… one ofher dolls and she got so angry that she fell down, foaming at themouth, and had to go to the hospital. Ever since then, the familyhas to be calm around her and work at not angering her or inspiringany extreme emotion because she has a weak heart. So Eddie takesit. He takes it when she complains about his pigeons and they haveto let them go. He cries, but doesn't retaliate when she burns hisbutterflies. He says nothing when she asks that his monkey bekilled because it is mocking her. He tells of a hunting trip with his father when they first met adog that he adopts, and how it has helped him since, how he hangsout with it every day, why it is important to him. And one day hesees his sister beating it with a stick. He says nothing, becausehe shouldn't upset her, but his hatred is building from all thetimes that she has been cruel to him and destroyed the things thathe loves. She tells him that if he allows it in the house again shewill have the workman kill it, because it ruined her slippers. Heruns after the dog, calling it. He finally gets close enough to seeit, though it won't come to him or allow him to touch it, and hesees that his sister has punctured the dog's eye. When he comes home, the workman shows him a centipede that he foundwhile chopping wood. Eddie kills it so that it won't hurt him tocarry it, goes inside, and throws it in his sister's lap. Shescreams, accuses him of trying to kill her, and falls down,clutching her chest in pain, moaning. He feels bad, saying that thecentipede is dead (it can't hurt her), but she doesn't move. That is how the story ends. The reader is left to wonder whathappened to the sister, and what happens next. It seems to be astory about how not allowing our emotions to be vented in some waycan be dangerous, but also about injustice, and how we deal withit.
