What I didn’t really like about it, was the lack of development for their relationship. To me, it seemed that she hated his guts, then boom! He says he is able to break her mother’s curse which makes her already attracted to him. I believe the author could’ve had the two slowly open up to each other, and maybe include a few awkward moments that shows the development of their love for each other. Despite the minor setback, I could not contain my excitement and muffled my squeals with a pillow.

In Eudora Welty’s short story, “Why I Live at the P.O.,” the first person narrator is called “Sister.” The most evident narrator’s characteristic is stubbornness. The narrator wants everyone to accept her opinions and inputs as the absolute truth and seems inconsiderate toward others’ perspective. She starts the story by criticizing her sister’s actions, Stella-Rondo. For instance, in the first sentence the narrator places herself as a victim, when she says: “I was getting along fine with Mama, Papa-Daddy, and Uncle Rondo until my sister Stella-Rondo just separated from her husband and came back home again” (1). From my perspective, the first few words “I was getting along fine,” raise questions: Was she always getting along fine?
This seven-year-old girl took a big chance that she would be returned to her mother, finding an unwelcome beating like in the past, but it was worth it. When her mother came to retrieve the young girl from the school house, the local police followed the orders of the Dictator and jailed her mother, enabling the young girl to receive her education.

All of the characters at some point claim that they are “one of the most unfortunate creatures in the world.” (92) However, until the end Paquette is the only one who truly laments her position and feels that she is being wronged. She is completely powerless in this profession and when she is no longer pretty she has only poverty to look forward to.
