The contribution of this paper is to provide a new and related interaction of “mind story” and writing thoughts between literature and English teaching reflecting the principle theme of the decoding reading from two related standpoints in Ernest Miller Hemingway’s “Hills Like White Elephants”. The first from writing thoughts concerns with the detailed literary analysis of “Hills Like White Elephants” and then from the decoding deconstructs textual schema of text solitaire games in “Hills Like White Elephants”. The second, based on the latest approach of mind story, gives an eminent “technological” experiment to reconstruct “concept plan learning” of picturebook and reform the blueprint of animation. The purposes of picturebook and the fruits of animations are to get significant meanings of ‘teaching and delight.’
