Can you find any useful words that the author uses to make the text scary?
”Scared stiff”, it’s more of an expression but it describes the person how she feels, and I think when you are scared stiff you’re very, very scared. "Trembling", also describes how the person feels, but it’s not that ”extreme” as scared stiff.
