Innocence gained at birth, except lost in seconds. The story of the lovers whose innocence was stolen away is a robustious one in The Things They Carried. bloody shame Ann Bell and hybridizing Fossie, a female monarch tale sustain to life. bloody shame Ann started stealing the soldiers lives in Vietnam, Mark Fossie became uncomfortable, to that degree proud of her eagerness and fearless quest for knowledge. To buy at kiley, ...Mary Ann made you think of of all those girls back home, how clean and innocent they all are, how theyll never visualise any of this... (OBrien 113). To the men she was dreams, youth, an escape, the future all in one pick apart trimmed girl. Mainly, however, to her boyfriend, Mark Fossie, she was his future, his connection life after the warfare. Rat Kiley describes Mark Fossie as proud, yes, but also amazed. A different person, it seemed, and he wasnt sure what to make of it. (OBrien 98). When Mary Ann changed, and ultimately vanished, it is as if the war stole every piece of Mark Fossie. Using this sophisticated labyrinthine love story enhances the sense of lost innocence. In the beginning Mary Ann and Mark contemplated what they would look like in the future, yet as the long time went by her mindset changed. She became more interested on her new environment and less focused on her future as his wife. It was then that Mark Fossie began to mention her going home. He had been holding on to their future for his sanity, much to Rat Kileys dismay man, you must be deaf. Shes already done for(p) (OBrien 107). However, she refused to leave. She claimed to be happier than ever in her life. Soon, the detachment grew between them. Mary Ann was immersing herself in Vietnam. Then one night she vanished with the Greenies. She was gone for weeks, one night Rat Kiley sa... ...bol of their innocence, and just as she became dangerous and was ready for the kill(OBrien 111), the soldiers changed to perish mysterious and cynic al because of the war. A piece of the love story that vanished the dreams and futures of the soldiers. They became corrupt forever with terrifying images burning through their minds. What happened to her, Rat said, was what happened to all of them. You come over clean and you get dirty and then afterward its never the same (OBrien 109). The things they saw the things they lived, they couldnt retell, for no one would believe it. Mary Ann Bell and Mark Fossie represented the relationships lost due to the war, the loved ones that had bury or who would never understand the changes. They represented the dreams that had changed and been lost. They were the innocence and naivety moody to disparagement.
