Explain what this text shows about their
relationship.
A model response from “The Ransom of Red
Chief” by O’ Henry:
A model explanation for what this text shows about
Bill and the narrator’s relationship:
“It looked like a good thing: but wait till I tell you.
We were down South, in Alabama—Bill Driscoll
and myself—when this kidnapping idea struck us”
(p.81).
This text shows that in the beginning of the story, Bill
and the narrator work together to create ideas, ideas
that might not always have good results! It shows me
that together they might be impulsive troublemakers
who live for fun.
