Reflection on doing my Historical Fiction Writing Piece:
The time period in my story is during WW2. The pearl harbor attack is one of the main parts of the story. I wrote this imaginary story because I didn’t like how the part of the pearl harbor attack was in the story. I changed that part in the story so it would be more interesting. I wanted to create a story from Billy’s point of view so I made my story about how friendship can mean a lot. I hope you enjoy my story because I really enjoyed writing it!
Introduction to my story
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, 1941
I watched from the side of the pavement as Tomi was getting taken away. After all these years of being his friend, this would be the last time I would ever see him again. I wondered what they were gonna do to him. Beat him? Lock him up? Do things that I don’t even want to imagine? I couldn’t stand the feeling knowing that I would never be able to play baseball with him ever again. I was about to, and going to lose my best friend.
As the truck drove away I caught a glimpse of Tomi’s face. Even though I couldn’t exactly see him through the dark glass windows I could tell he was terrified. I felt so bad for him knowing about the terrible things they did at those internment camps. Tomi hadn’t even done anything.
The Japanese had bomb Pearl Harbour. All the Japanese – Americans in Hawaii were forced to leave their homes and were forced to go to internment camps. All the innocent Japanese people like Tomi had to go also. The soldiers didn’t want to take any risks so they had to take all the Japanese people in the country.
I watched the Truck until it was out of my sight and walked back to my house. Everything felt so lonely and different. Even though Tomi had just left a few minutes ago I already started to feel really lonely. Tomi really was a true friend to me. He was the only one that truly understood me and accepted me for the way I was. I was going to miss him a lot.
