They are flaunting the great sensation they feel regarding killing, whereas the boys felt differently about this prior to the plane crash. Continuing, the unintentional murder of Simon demonstrates the boys’ chaotic and careless behaviours.

Guilty Guilt is inevitable when one does something wrong. This feeling of guilt is present in Acceleration by Graham McNamee when Duncan tries to save a drowning girl but fails. Guilt also exists in The Penance by Osaki when a family’s gardener, Octavia, kills their cat and is disowned by the children. It is also present in Call Me Mr. Guilty by Loudon Wainwright III, when the speaker realizes he treats an individual poorly. Guilt affects these characters mentally overall in many ways.

Without considering further, I dropped the cake of soap into the tub of fish.” (Flack 6) Because of Andy’s trick, he ended up poisoning the Duvitches large supply of fish.

According to Genesis 2:16-17 “And Jehovah God also laid this command upon the man: from every tree of the garden you may eat to satisfaction, but as for the tree of knowledge of good and bad you must not eat from it, for the day you eat from it you will positively die”.
