When he does not let go when she asks, she begins to yell for help. At the possibility of not being able to tend the rabbits, Lennie becomes upset.

In John Steinbeck’s dynamic novel Of Mice and Men, the challenged Lennie’s harmless intentions results in heinous acts due to his decline in mentality and inability to control his own immense strength.
