Death perspectives!

i read a couple of stories on arabtimes online and what struck me is how both dramatic endings left me with opposite emotional states.

the first story is about this guy who jumped from the fourth floor and crashed on the ground when he was busted fooling around with a maid - his only exit was the window, but i guess he forgot that he simply can't fly! though the story ended in death, it was kind of "light-hearted"

as for the second one, it was about this woman who went to her husband and broke the amazing news of her pregnancy, however her husband only married her for sex, so he attacked her and as a result she miscarried! that one left me with a deep feeling of anger and discomfort - imagine this lady going to her husband carrying his baby and probably the best news a man can get, only to be treated with such brutality, she lost the fruit of her loins!

funny how death can trigger so many opposite feelings..

      True, people have different perspectives and oposite emotions.
      After reading your post I felt deep sorrow for the guy in the first story. He just panic and ran away from consequence of his act. Now, His life is wasted with no chance to redeem himself and will face his God in a moment of sin.
      However, the lady in the second story have another chance to come out of her heartbreak, disappointment and depression and get pregnant hopefully from a better man. She is better off not bring a baby to this world with such a horrible man.

      When you first read the stories you think about death and it's upsetting…then you look at it in a different way and notice that both men in those stories did bad things… as 7essa said it's sad
