Stories are not created by the writer, but by the reader. The writer creates a text, which (if the writer does it well) triggers a story in the mind of the reader, but a thousand people reading the same text will experience a thousand different stories. Even the writer, in the process of writing a book, can experience a story with details that are contradicted by the text.
In my novel When It All Comes Down to Dust, it is stated at the beginning that the protagonist has black hair and that her skin is tanned dark… but, as I wrote the book, and saw the story happening, I did not see a woman with black hair and tanned skin. For some reason, the woman I saw had blonde hair and a light complexion. In writing the text I could not even control how I imagined the narrative, so what chance does a writer have of controlling how other people see a story, or the meaning they find in it?
