Sister tells her story in past tense, and her being a significant participant in the action may alter her memory of what actually happened. Sister points out that she is stressed out by Stella-Rondo’s sudden homecoming. She says, “There I was over the hot stove, trying to stretch two chickens over five people and a completely unexpected child into the bargain, without one moment’s notice.” The irritation of suddenly having to cook for more people than she expected may contribute to how Sister reacts to Stella-Rondo’s comments and how she recounts the incident. The stress and irritation are only added when Stella-Rondo turns Papa-Daddy against her. Sister also points out that she has to prepare the green tomato pickle since “Mama had turned both the niggers loose.” Mama shames Stella-Rondo for making such a dish that will not agree with Uncle Rondo or Shirley-T. At this point Sister feels as if she is being criticized by every family member and can not please anyone.

Thus quoting: “ They scream at me and tell me I'm filthy. I try to explain that Mam has the disease and I'm worn out trying to make ends meet, keeping the home fires burning, getting lemonade for Mam and bread for my brothers.” This illustrates Frankie living out his role as a provider and being motivated by not becoming what his father once was.

He tells her, truthfully, about how he felt when she concerned herself with his attire at their son’s funeral, opening the line of communication that is unfortunately unreceived. However, he makes the fatal mistake of running from his problems with Beth that may have been capable of being saved when he cries in the kitchen late at night, telling Beth that he does not think he loves her anymore because of her recent actions. This is an example of Calvin’s flight mode, contrasted by the fight that he produces at golf with Beth and her brother. He fights her on being so unwilling to be around Calvin as they discussed another vacation. These two things could have been solved, like Conrad, by assuring the value of the relationship to create safety and admitting the mutual purpose of staying together and properly raising their broken
In The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, the two main characters, Elizabeth and John Proctor, clearly face a struggle of intentions. For example, John oftentimes attempts to rekindle the marriage, while Elizabeth clearly suspects that there are underlying issues such as lying, as well as the possibility of adultery with another character named Abagail. For example, when smelling his wife’s cooking he “takes a pinch of salt, and drops it into the pot”, to avoid hurting her feelings. Then, while eating, Proctor proclaims “It’s well seasoned” to give her a sense of pleasure and compliment (Miller 48). Examples as such clearly indicate that John is attempting to foster their strained relationship, and it also still evident that it is on the verge
