imagination was wrong and the ending seems to be an annual sacrifice to the gods of whoever the village, the religion, the political regime, worships. Someone must die. Base on my point of view, I would prefer to start with an introduction what is the story talking about and give the audience suspend on the plot of the story. Then before entering the main body of the story, I would like the idea of making the audience change their perspective view on how the story would go, then entering the main body of the story of how it could change their thinking and how come it turns out to be this way. Basically, it is easier to say that I prefer the story that has some plot that does the twisting in the middle of the story and the protagonist and the antagonist does something that reader will never expect. Just like the literature that I've studied during my high school back in Malaysia. Because that way, I feel it is much more interesting and the story won't is so boring for the audience.
