For example “ You are forbidden - forbidden - to talk about you voyage to your brother and sister.” This proves that Mr. Doyle didn’t want anyone to know about the voyage. About how she did those unnatural things. Mr. Doyle did not turn out to be the person she thought he would
I avoided boats and wouldn’t take a plane or go abroad. Despite all these precautions, I couldn’t get rid of the image of myself drowning”(366). This expresses just how deep his fear of water is.

The Fear of Decision Making In the short story, On The Rainy River by Tim O'Brien, he writes about what he did after he got his draft notice and his fear of going to the war and getting killed. He ran to the Canadian border to run away from this duty but in the end could not run away because of his cowardliness. Fear is the feeling of being afraid of something or to avoid or put off doing something because one is afraid. Everyone is afraid of different things such as spiders or the dark or monsters under the bed but everyone is afraid of making the wrong decisions. The outcome of this short story is different from Moses's view of war in the Bible.

There is no legitimate reason to make anyone touch their own coffin, other to be cruel, mean, and spiteful. That was exactly what the narrator did, and if his brother would not touch it he was going to leave him there. At that point in the story Doodle did not know how to walk so he would not have been able to get down at all. The narrator is also needlessly cruel to Doodle when Hurst writes “The knowledge that Doodle’s and my plans had come to naught was bitter, and that streak of cruelty within me awakened. I ran as fast as I could, leaving him far behind with a wall of rain dividing us” (360).

Frederic was mistaken for someone he was not, and was very critical of how young soldiers minds only focused on their own glory.The internal conflict within Frederic to escape the war drove him to dive into the river and strip the stars from his uniform. This external conflict quote was an example of human versus human. The ambulance drivers found themselves in a situation where their vehicle was stuck in the mud and men refused to follow orders to push it out. Soldiers began to flee the area for fear of approaching enemy.
And will destroy his perfection as a Puritan. Hale in a way just wanted everything to be ok and over with, but he was in the same boat as the others, scared. But he knew something happened, all of them might of known something else happened with the girls, but refused it, because it would have been a worse outcome at the end. So might as well leave as it is. Yeah it might have been messed up, but why put more dirt on our own hands over this.
This made him very closed minded, not wanting to open up to anyone. Talking to people was already an issue for him, he misunderstood things and took it as if they would want to take advantage. He no longer had a relation with nobody but his magical talking goldfish. That was his company, his friend, his family. This made Sergei make a big deal about losing his fish.
“Neither of the boys screamed but the grip of their arms tightened and their mouths grew peaked.” (98) Even though the twins didn’t scream, they were both still scared since they were alone at night. The twins had no idea what the noise was because they missed the battle. They both thought that it was the beast since one of the littluns had claimed that they had seen it before. They were too afraid to explore what it was because they were alone in the dark, watching the fires. They didn’t even bother looking for the beast since they anxious since they believe that the beast is real.
Passengers scrambled back to rooms for life jackets. Then, a second explosion shook the ship, believed to be a steam pressure drop. With the ship moving at 18 knots the water flooding in caused the bow to sink and the stern to lift, and a list towards the starboard, as a result of the empty coal bunker filling up. The men in the forward baggage holds, where the torpedo hit, were all killed or trapped, and they knew how to launch a life boat. The deck was in chaos, the starboard boats were too far for a person to get in them off the deck and the port ones were not over the water.
