Free, free, free!
He stood amazed at Josephine's piercing cry
Mrs. Mallard is sick and suffers from a weak heart. It was her sister Josephine who told her, in broken sentences; veiled hints that revealed in half concealing. Her husband's friend Richards was there, too, near her.
She had died of heart disease - of joy that kills.
Mrs. Mallard realizes that she is now free from a marriage in which she wasn't truly happy. When she abandoned herself a little whispered word escaped her slightly parted lips. She said it over and over under her breath: "free, free, free!"
Mrs. Mallard comes to the conclusion that she is now free to live a happy life. She and Josephine walk down and see Mr. Mallard. come through the door. He had been far from the scene of the accident, and did not even know there had been one.
Mrs. Mallard collapses and dies. The doctor said "she had died of heart disease - of joy that kills." As she realized her "freedom" was never to be and that killed her.
