These two short narratives deal with a young person's life being influenced, for the better, by an adult. Basically, in different ways, both Marguerite and Roger got a needed kick in the butt when they needed it to help them start going in the right direction.

For this assignment you need to think of a time you were influenced, for the better, by an adult--a time an adult gave you the needed kick in the butt. Write a narrative about one time that adult had an influence on you. Don't write a tribute to the person, write a story about the time that person influenced you. Make sure to include all the elements of a narrative.
