An Aquaintance With Darkness
The story begins when Emily hears a knocking at her door. She goes and answer it since she and her mother are the only one?s left in the house. Emily mother is very sick so Emily takes care of her. While Emily walked to the door she hoped a border would be at it, but she knew it would probably Johnny surrat. She had guessed correctly. Emily was filled with so much joy to see Johnny. She hadn?t seen him since a week before the end of March. During that week Johnny had taken Emily and her friend honora to Ford?s Theater.
Before letting Johnny in to the house she and him had a small argument. Johnny asked Emily what she was going to do. She replied by saying she was going to take care of her mama until she died. After that she would go to Richmond to live her aunt. Johnny told Emily not to go to Richmond. He told her this because Richmond had been destroyed. Johnny also told Emily he was leaving Washington and might not come back. He told her the war was ending. Emily really didn?t care about the war, because her father died fighting
