Okay, in these situations(plural). You see, I have this problem...to where I'm extremely detached. I'm a little aloof when it comes to emotions and how to react accordingly. A gun could be held to my head and I'd look around the room for hints. "Should I cry or scream? Help me out guys." So, in the name of REALISM, I would appreciate some help. Here is the character bio: Name: Sandy Age: 17 Details: She's tough, a tomboy, lives in the country, knows how to handle a gun, helps around the ranch, is a daydreamer, likes to think about things on deep levels, very mature for her age, can't relate to the people her age because of her maturity, is having a sort of religious crisis(starting to lose faith). Here are the situations: 1) Sandy spots two grown men on her property tussling. When she sees one pull a knife and continue to stab the other, she reluctantly shoots. The man dies immediately. Note: I picture her knees buckling, falling to a sit, wide eyed, mouth agape, and silent. I mean, she just KILLED someone. What do you think goes best here? 2) The man who was stabbed spontaneously heals(*wink, wink*). He grabs Sandy by the arm and urges her saying, "We have to leave! Get up! Hurry!" (I personally see her trying to get away from him. After all, he's a stranger.) He says this: "Either stay here and die, or come with me and possibly live." Note: I see Sandy at first trying to escape from his grasp, screaming, "Let go of me! Don't touch me!" When he says the last part, I think she should still struggle to get away from him. What do you think? BTW, the gun was dropped. If she falls down in shock, the gun is dropped at her side, and when the man takes her by the arm, she's pulled father away from it. So it's not within reach. 3) Sandy is dragged by the man into the swamplands(it's the country) where, I think, she should continue to struggle. She's taken to a campground where there are other people. When she recognizes one as a good friend, I think the man should let go of her and let her run to the friend. Note: I don't think she can really be calm until the friend sort of "introduces" her to the man. It would be more like, "Sandy, it's okay. I know him." Etc. What do you think? This is a paranormal YA series and "the man" is very large, so it's only plausible that she'd be unsuccessful in overpowering him(as she herself is very small). However, I'd like her reactions to be as realistic as possible. Suggestions and criticism are welcome! Thank you.
