In chapter six a dead parachutist who died during an airplane explosion fell out of the plain and landed on the island. The irony in this chapter was that the only adult that came the closest to helping the boys, died himself. Sam and Eric saw the dead parachutist on the mountain as they were keeping the fire burning. They thought the parachutist was the beast and informed Ralph right away. Ralph instantly got his spears ready, and along with some other boys went looking for the beast. However, the boys did not find the "beast" anywhere. The beast seems to be all in their minds.We all seem to fear something. Whether they are spiders, snakes, heights, ghosts, etc. We may even know that some of these fears are not real, and rather are just in our heads. Yet, we still fear them because there may be some chance that they are real. My worst fear are ghosts. The thought of them makes shivers go up and down my spine. Even though ghosts do not exist I find them absolutely horrifying.Even though I have not encountered ghosts personally, I've had scary experiences relating to ghosts.

In the middle of the rows were piles of dried leaves which had fallen from the plants. They were brown and black in colour, and added to the dark atmosphere inside the rows. When you walked the leaves rustled beneath your feet, so that the presence of being inside these rows was always noticeable. Huge, dark and hairy spiders crawled over the rows as slugs sheltered themselves at the bases of the plants. During the whole time that we owned that farm, I did not dare to step into these rows by myself.One day my sister and I were picking berries in these rows. Since we had each other we did not fear a thing. Instead we remembered funny jokes and laughed at just about anything. As we were picking the berries my sister claimed that she had to go to the bathroom. Instantly I offered to come with her because the thought of staying alone in these dark rows was unimaginable. However, my sister insisted that I stay and get some work done. I protested again, however I was forced to stay by myself until she came back. As she left, I...
