    That's a tough question, not knowing what the titles or the stories are!
    But the right way of appropaching it is obviously to think about why the author would have called the story what s/he did. Often there's something symbolic about it, or it draws the reader's attention to a vital part of the story. If you understand the story, you should understand the title.
    Do you want to tell us what they are?
