One of the trials was killing the second name on her list, Vernita, while her daughter witnesses it. The second trial was when she was buried alive by Budd, and had to claw and dig herself out of her own grave. The third trial was when Beatrix comes across Elle fighting for her vengeance retrieving her sword. She is successful after plucking out Elle's other eye which leaves her blind. In this story, I believe the stage, meeting with the god or goddess, was early on when she received the one of a kind sword that Hanzo crafted for her.

Both couples of these stories share a deep connection and love for each other, but are forbidden to be together because of their parents. Shakespeare very quickly introduces the problem in the prologue of Romeo and Juliet, narrating, “A pair of star-cross 'd lovers take their life; Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Do with their death bury their parents ' strife”(Shakespeare 1.0.6-8). Romeo and Juliet’s parents’ long held adversity is directly explained to be what leads to the series of tragic events and death of the two lovers since they hold no power to be together.

Throughout the entire movie though, Anna and Kate show love and support for each other despite the fact that Anna is the only one keeping Kate alive, and she will be responsible for her death.

The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins tells a story about a girl whose bravery changed the way people thought about their world. The three grueling challenges that the main character, Katniss Everdeen, had faced show what I believe to be challenging.
