“They’re not coming. I’ve been a fool.” The demon nodded in agreement and smiled a self-satisfied, red smile before it retreated back into the darkness, never to return. He had lost. The Visitor was still alive. He would have to move, to leave the corner, or even the town itself or die himself.
The mention of food is quickly turned away several times throughout their hospital stay with the affirmation that they do not need food. The confrontation with the baker does not go as imagined and the couple ends up sharing a meal with the baker. " 'You probably need to eat something, ' the baker said, I hope you 'll eat some of my hot rolls. You have to eat and keep going. Eating is a small, good thing in a time like this" (Carver, 1983, p. 13).
The tenants knew he kept a close eye on them for the sake of the boardinghouse. He did not like when the tenants cause trouble or to act suspicious. His wife would rather him not worry about their business and just leave them alone. “As long as you get your boarding money it ain’t your cause about what he do.” (2.1) Additionally, even if he has worked all night, he loves to sit in the kitchen during breakfast and talk about the gossip around the town. “My grandpap say he a great big old windbag.” (1.1) Seth Holly’s main focus was to have a stable life.
At the beginning of the passage, the man decides to take a walk in the desert after sunset. He notices the “thinning” sunlight, along with the much “cooler” air and “savory odors” from the scrub.

The juxtaposition between the location and the snake’s upcoming death causes the passing of the snake to feel even more jarring and harsh.
Since Givonné was so lonesome, making people out of clay was his way of having the friends and family he never had. To his surprise, the little boy that he had skillfully made, was no longer on the table. After searching around his house for the clay boy, he gave up and thought to himself, not even fake people like me. He then became hungry and went to the refrigerator, and to his amazement there it was a little clay boy with blonde hair sipping at a vile chemical. “It’s alive,” said Givonné joyfully.
They knew it was self defense but they didn't want to take that risk. So, they went to Dally and they got some money or food, a gun, and a jacket for Ponyboy. They went to Dally because they knew if they wanted to get out of town and away from prying cops, they knew Dally would be the person to make it happen.

Later that day, Dally showed up and took them to lunch for some real food.
She had hoped her manager would let her off early, but it was looking like she would be staying late. She glanced around the empty dining room lazily.

He skipped breakfast since he had a sick feeling in his stomach. Chase strolled around Nantucket pondering what he would do on such a terrible day. Only one thing crossed his mind. “I shall visit Captain Pollard,” he thought to himself. “The poor fellow doesn’t deserve to be alone.” As chase thought more about it, he passed the local bakery.
No need for the cops to have another reason to throw my ass in jail for thinking I pushed Mason to his death. I was out for a jog because my step father was giving me hell for my new scandal.
