The Story From a Characters Point of View

While reading a story, sometimes you often wonder, what if one of the characters of the story wrote it and how different would it be. In "The Story Of An Hour", if Richards wrote it the story would be a lot more interesting. First off, he would have written it based on an insider's point of view. Also, if Richards wrote the story you would not get all the information of Louise's inner thoughts. Lastly, the reason people would want to read Richards point of view is to know how he felt went Brently walked through the door.

Richard knew everything about Brently, they have known each other since childhood and grew up together. They have been through everything you can think of together. Richard and Brently graduated high school together and decided to go to the same college because they were inseparable.

When he heard the news of Brentlys death in the accident he felt like he had lost apart of him and did not know how to express his feelings. Know after the sudden shock of seeing Brently it triggered his brain and than started to remember Louise heart condition. He turned immediately to try and block the Louise view from seeing Brently knowing the news would shock her. The next few moments happened so fast for Richards, he went from losing his only best friend to getting him back and then losing another good friend.

To sum it all up I would be interested to hear the story from Richards point of view. Hearing all about how Richards and Brently grew up together. How Richards introduced Brently to his future wife, Louise. The only downfall is that we would not get to hear Louise inner thoughts. The most intriguing part would be to hear how Richards felt when he saw his best friend whom he thought had just died, walked
