I decided to peep from the window and accidentally found out that Pip was actually good at fighting. At the end of the day, when I took Pip to the gate, I let him kiss my cheek before he left. I didn’t love him, but I suddenly realized that he was not the man that I would like to torment. In the next few months, Pip did still come to the Satis.

Polly sometimes envys the Shaw’s for having money, being able to buy what they want when they want it, while she on the other hand has to earn her own money to buy practical things rather than new dresses. The conflict intensifies when Tom was talking to Fanny one night at the opera, and said to his sister “It’s just Polly.” This deeply upsets Polly to hear one of her dearest friends say such a thing, and to refer to her as just Polly rather than a friend. Even Fanny continues to call Polly “Old fashioned” she might not mean it to be rude, but it still hurts Polly to be called names by her friends. Polly soon begins to wonder if she is to old fashioned and independent and that her friends feels the same way as the other people who look down on her, she beings to think about this after the day she passed Tom and Trix and Tom did not say hello to her. Even the ladies in Fanny’s sewing circle tease poor Polly, she knows she is an outcast to ladies and does not like going because the ladies talk and gossip about things she does not understand and she finds it unpleasant when they deliberately call her old

Children mature when they see their parents’ love for them, even if their parents don’t show it. The short story “Penny in the Dust” shows this idea through the characters Pete and his father. Though Pete’s father doesn’t show any signs of affection towards Pete, Pete soon realizes the unconditional love that his father has for him. Ernest Buckler uses the physical setting of Pete’s hometown, and Pete’s psychological setting effectively to show Pete’s rite of passage where his love and relation with his father changed when Pete realized his father’s unconditional love for him. Initially, Pete’s character is that of a 7-year-old boy who can not express his love for his father.
Later in chapter 4, Timothy stated, “‘A crack on d’ead takes a few days to go ‘way.’” (p.45) This quote shows that Timothy had always protected Phillip.
