In the very last few scenes of the novel, Kaname even mistook a puppet that his father in law had bought in Awaji for her. In the western world blackened teeth, ghostly white skin, and the many unshapely layers of dress were never looked upon as the standard of beauty, in fact they were the opposite. But O-hisa exemplifies what makes a traditional Japanese female beautiful. Hearing about Japanese beauty standards in a history text is one thing but being shown it in a novel helps us to truly understand the
He just wanted talk to me anxiously so he could tell me good morning and goodnight on the phone for another whole month.So, he spent his last few dollars on the right phone card just for me. My boyfriend was the only who had to pay for everything whenever we went somewhere. I wanted to help pay so eagerly, but I did not have money nor a job to spare. On Valentine's Day of this year, I told him not to be concerned about getting me a gift, because I did not have the money to buy him anything.

This interaction adds on to my thesis, showing that they had to sacrifice what was the utmost precious belongings they held, in order to buy each other gifts. Although they could mourn over a loss of their favored items, their love still propels them, acknowledging that they did it for each
They live in short stories. Two short stories that are interesting are "The Gift of the Magi" by O. Henry and "The Necklace" by Guy de Maupassant. Della in "The Gift of the Magi" wants to find Mr. James Dillingham Young, her husband, the best gift for Christmas, but she has just one dollar and eighty-seven cents. Mathilde Loisel in "The Necklace" borrows her friend 's necklace for good-looking for going to the ball at the Ministry. While there are some obvious similarities, both authors approach these stories, specifically with the characters, tone, and point of view, in different ways.
