    There Will Come Soft Rains by Ray Bradbury At eight-thirty the eggs were shriveled and the toast was like stone.  An aluminum wedge scraped them into the sink,  where hot water whirled them down a metal throat which digested and flushed them away to the distant sea.  The dirty dishes were dropped into a hot washer and emerged twinkling dry.

    The given passage from "There Will Come Soft Rains" by Ray Bradbury is written in the third person objective point of view. This can be inferred from the use of pronouns such as "the eggs," "the toast," "an aluminum wedge," and "hot water," which indicate a detached and unbiased perspective. The narrator does not provide any insight into the thoughts or feelings of the characters, but rather describes their actions and the events objectively.

    War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells We were driving along the road from Treguier to Kervanda. We passed at a smart trot between the hedges topping an earth wall on each side of the road; then at the foot of the steep ascent before Ploumar the horse dropped into a walk, and the driver jumped down heavily from the box. He flicked his whip and climbed the incline, stepping clumsily uphill by the side of the carriage, one hand on the footboard, his eyes on the ground. After a while he lifted his head, pointed up the road with the end of the whip, and said: "The idiot!"  I was startled by his outburst.

    Seventh Grade by Gary Soto On the first day of school, Victor stood in line half an hour before he came to a wobbly card table.  He was handed a packet of papers and a computer card on which he listed his one elective, French.  He already spoke Spanish and English, but he thought some day he might travel to France, where it was cool; not like Fresno, where summer days reached 110 degrees in the shade.

    Rikki-tikki-tavi by Rudyard Kipling Rikki-tikki heard them going up the path from the stables, and he raced for the end of the melon patch near the wall.  "I was not a day too son," he said; for he could see the baby cobras curled up inside the skin, and he knew that the minute they were hatched they could kill a man or mongoose.  He bit off the tops of the eggs as fast as he could, taking care to crush the young cobras.  Nagaina spun clear round, forgetting everything for the sake of her eggs.  She saw she had lost her chance of killing Teddy, and the last egg lay between Rikki-tikki's paws.

    Cool Breeze on a Hot Day by Amy Scott "Ice cream! Ice cream!" I heard the street vendor shouting as he pushed his cart down the block. Ice cream sounded really tasty on a day like this. I plunged my hands into my pockets and examined the contents: one pair of house keys, a pack of gum that was almost empty, and a few coins. I pulled the coins from my pockets and counted them. It didn't take long. 46 cents. I saw a line of children from the neighborhood in front of the street vendor. Each walked away happier than the former. My mouth tasted like hot ashes.

    Growing Tomatoes by Luke Pitts Your tomato plants may be resilient, but there are a couple things that you can do to help them grow rich and lush. First, you should water the tomato plant in the morning. Tomatoes grow best when they can aspirate, or drink water, all day in the sun. If you water them at night, they will have a harder time releasing excess water. Second, you should give them the correct amount of water. Follow the chart on page 67 to determine how much water you should give your tomato plants.
