For example, in “The Ransom of Red Chief,” Bill and Sam want to receive a large ransom from Mr. Dorset for the return of his son, but ends up having to pay him money instead. “Just at the moment when I should have been abstracting the fifteen hundred dollars from the box under the tree, according to the original position, Bill was counting out two hundred and fifty dollars into Dorset’s hands” (Henry 25). Similarly, in “The Story of an Hour,” Mrs. Mallard dies of heart disease soon after being told her husband died in a train wreck, only for her husband to walk in the house a few minutes later without a scratch. “Someone was opening the front door with a latch key. It was Brently Mallard who entered, a little travel stained… He had been far from the scene of the accident” (Chopin 3).

They do not develop a strong relationship with him before he ultimately dies, though, because they saved his life, a small relationship does develop. In Sparks’ novel, when he knows he will die soon, Ira calls his lawyer and sets up an art auction, inviting not only art critics and collectors from around the world, but also Luke and Sophia. This surprised me, as a reader, because Sparks does not show much of a relationship between the pair and Ira after they rescue him; although it may be assumed he invited them because they saved his life and learned his story through the letter they found in the destroyed car. In the movie, Luke and Sophia find Ira as they return from their first date, at the beginning of the movie.
