The jealous are troublesome to others
When I read chapter 18 in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, I could really relate to one thing. That one thing was jealousy. When Tom returned form the island he became famous with all of his classmates. He stared to pay little attention to Becky and focus on Amy. This made Becky furious. She tried many things to get Tom back but none of them seemed to work. Final Becky started to pay attention to another boy. But when that failed the plan hurt Tom more than is was supposed to. When Becky told the boy off he got mad; he grabbed Tom's spelling book and put ink all over it. This wasn't supposed to happen, but it did. When I was in third grade I had a similar experience to this. I was sitting at my desk waiting to get my math test back. I was sitting right next to my best friend, James. James wasn't a very good student. He never studied and always got a bad grade. I on the other hand studied a lot for tests; so when the teacher handed them back I was furious. James had gotten a better score than me. I knew he Hadn't studied and I knew that I should have gotten the better score. Later that day me and James were walking down the hall. We suddenly noticed something in a locker. It was the newest Pokemon card. James quickly stole it before I said anything. This made me even more jealous. I later told a teacher about how James had stolen the card. He was sent to the office and was grounded for a couple days. I never meant for this to happen I just felt bad. Becky felt the same way when Tom lost interest in her. Jealousy is something that is dishonest and bad. I you ever feel that way, never express it. Put it inside you and distract yourself with something else.
