Well that’s what happen with Mrs. Mallard, her husband was in the news has one of the person to be killed by a train. Mrs. Mallard sister, Josephine had broken the news to her along with Mr. Mallards friend Richard, who was double checking the list they had everyone that were killed by the trained, and that’s were Richard confirmed that his friend was on that list. “She wept at once, with sudden, wild abandonment, in her sister’s arms.”

A clear and exalted perception enabled her to dismiss the suggestion as trivial. She knew that she would weep again when she saw the kind, tender hands folded in death; the face that had never looked save with love upon her, fixed and gray and dead.” Though she seem like she was unhappy being married she felt free again to live life but still had a soft spot in her heart for her husband. “There would be no one to live or during those coming years; she would live for herself.” “Josephine was kneeling before the closed door with her lips to the keyhold, imploring for admission. “Louise, open the door!
