An Example (from the text) and explanation of brother's REGRET

In "The Scarlet Ibis," brother regrets losing Doodle when he dies. "For a long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen Scarlet Ibis from the heresy if rain" (Hurst 6). Brother feels bad about losing Doodle. He cried when he died which is something I never thought he would do because earlier in the story he planned to kill him.
