Regret is a common thing driven by sheer pride and most people find relatable. The story "The Scarlet Ibis," written by James Hurst, is based around the death of little brother Doodle. A gloomy setting starts the story off with names of their dead and songs seeming to die in the trees. Brother is serenaded in guilt and regret, for he is the reason brother is no longer. If Brother had not been so embarrassed by Doodle, than Brother wouldn 't have left him. Perhaps a shadow of regret now haunts Brother.
