"Something Like Fate" is written in a first-person and subjective point of view. The story is told from Lani's perspective. Because it's written in this perspective, the reader is privy to her thoughts and torn emotions. The reader also understands how she thinks others relate to her. This is important because the story revolves around secrets, and Lani has the best of intentions, but they backfire on her. Since the reader can see her thought processes, the reader can relate to her and sympathize with her even when she makes the wrong choices.
