  • Climax
  • Please, don't leave me, brother!
  • In a small country home, a new baby is born. William Armstrong, they called him, but he was incapable of living up to the name. Doodle was more fit, and so it was changed. Doodle was special, and would change his brother's life.
  • Falling Action
  • The narrator was ashamed of Doodle's disabilities, so he decided to teach him to walk. Although it seemed impossible, after weeks of continuous pressure, Doodle took his first steps.
  • Resolution
  • Doodle is not strong enough to run in the storm, which angers his brother, and he runs, causing Doodle to chase after him, pushing himself too hard as he calls out, "Brother, don't leave me!"
  • With a pang of guilt, the narrator turns back to go to Doodle, only to find that he had been bleeding and was no longer conscious.
  • As the narrator holds his cold brother, he weeps tears of sorrow for his Scarlet Ibis, knowing his pride was the cause of his death.
