The return with the elixir

The hero returns home or continues the journey, bearing some element of the treasure that has the power to transform the world as the hero has been transformed. 

The story I'm  writing about is the movie we watched in class called Romeo and Juliet.  The return with the elixir happens when  Romeo gets to marry Juliet even after Julia was told she can't they proceeded with their marriage because they loved each other and they did not care what their parents  about one another and they thought that it shouldn't matter that Romeo is a Montague and Juliet was a Capulet. And that nothing can separate love even when they died they died together.

The reward.

The reward is when the hero takes possession of the treasure won by facing death. There may be celebration, but there is also danger of losing the treasure again.

I did the reward on through the tunnel Some qualities needed to successfully make it through this stage of the journey would be, fearlessness, confidence in yourself, and bravery. Jerry successfully meets the requirements to get through this stage of journey when he held his breath for well over three minutes and Swam through the tunnel. Jerry trained every day for hours on end going underwater and holding his breath until he could do it for two minutes easy witch is what he needed to be able to do if he wanted to make it through the tunnel alive. As Jerry was swimming through the dark scary long tunnel he got distracted by a ray of light shining through a crack in the tunnel. Jerry panicked he thought it was air and stopped swimming, his lungs felt like exploding his head was spinning and he couldn't focus. Jerry finally got it together but lost count of how long he was down there for so but he kept swimming knowing his life depended on it. Jerry finally made it though and swam to the top of the water, his nose was bleeding and his goggles were filed with blood but he did it, he made it through alive like the other big boys did. Jerry learned that it probably wasn't very smart for him to do something so foolish over the ability to swim through a tunnel and risk his life for it like he said in the text “i'll do it if it kills me”. But in the end he was proud of himself and his mother was very impressed that he held his breath for over three minutes. In conclusion to Jerry's foolish actions he had a very bad nose bleed a terrible headache and he almost lost his life.
