By: Sebastian Corona
This morning, Reverend Parris’s daughter has not awoken due to mysterious activity resembling witch actions. There has been talk that Abigail Williams and the rest of the girls in town went out to the forest. Reverend Parris is questioned by the community in having to do with witchcraft. Betty Paris remains asleep while the town is in confusion. As this goes on they bring in a priest to see if she can awake the daughter. Abigail is being questioned because of the suspicion she has put out already. Since all girls discuss what they did in the forest, they all try to explain what they did in a whole different view. As abigail hears all the girls explain what they did she says “ Oh, you’re a great one for looking’, aren’t you, Mary Warren? What a grand peeping courage you have.”
This happened around the year of 1962 and went on for about a year in Salem, Massachusetts. The confronting of all the girls caused them to believe that they were all guilty but the did not want to be punished for it. This is assumed to had happened in the forest away from the town. The reason why it has happened has not been fully discovered but there are many opinions regarding what people “think” happened. Many were throwing out their opinion but when asked to give further information they stayed quiet to avoid constant assumptions. This all ended when Reverend Hale came to get the girls to speak out about who caused the witchcraft activity.
