This theme is subtly shown throughout the story, but becomes more apparent after the main event, the slaughter. After Date Bed is presumed missing, Mud, despite the fact that she is not of She-S blood, shows concern for her friend and adopted family member throughout the story – “It is just as well that Mud’s thoughts can’t be heard because what she is thinking is, “I’m the one who loves her. None of you loves her as I do,” and the uselessness of her love arouses her to such a pitch of anguish that she thinks of returning to the plain and searching for Date Bed on her own” (Gowdy, 105). The other She-S’s feel the same way as well – She-Snorts states, “I would not go to The Safe Place…knowing that Date Bed might still be alive and lost” (Gowdy, 249). If the She-S’s didn’t care for their family as much, they would have abandoned all thought of Date Bed and wouldn’t bother searching for her.

In this story, we could analyse that Yasunari messages us that a girl is very fragile, that every girl is very weak to show her emotions and afraid to fight what she wants. During the times when Sayoko was abused by her husband, she did not fight to him, rather she let him to abuse her. She had let her husband kick and beat her because she cannot fight back to him well maybe she loved him that much. But as we continue to read the letter of Sayoko, we could see in the end part of the story, Sayoko had regret the day that she let her husband abuse her, and in that part we could analyse that every person gets blind and numb when they are in love and they are so very weak and soft-hearted.
In act four Hamlet ‘pretended’ that he didnt love Ophelia because her dad and claudius were watching him.

The characterization and the interaction of the characters is very dynamic, and is all seen through the main character Nick Carraway.
