## Plot Conflict and Resolution Practice Exercises

### Practice 1: No Exit

 (1) As the robot came closer, Zantur knew it would be almost impossible to escape. He slipped around a corner and held his breath as the metallic monitor clanked by. Zantur was determined to get out. . . . He didn't know why he'd let the others talk him into coming in the first place! They knew of his fear, yet they persisted, taunting him until he agreed to join them. But now . . . now he just couldn't go through with it! He carefully peered around the corner. The robot was nowhere in sight, so Zantur inched his way toward an EXIT sign flashing ahead of him. Just as he reached out to unlatch the pod covering, the robot grabbed his arm. "CAUGHT! CAUGHT!" it beeped loudly. (2) People came rushing down the hall. "Aha! It was you!" someone shouted. "Are you just getting here . . . trying to get in through a latched pod door?" (3) Zantur pulled his arm from the robot's clutch. "Ye-ye-yeah!" he stammered. "Sorry to be late. I'm really looking forward to this!" Then he forced a smile as he joined his graduating class in the dance room for the prom. He looked at Debu and she shyly smiled. He so wished he wasn't afraid to ask her to dance!
