I snapped and complained about how tired I was and asked if she could do without one today. I told her I would bring her get one the next day. As usual, she did not argue and simply said yes, but my mom made me go get her one. She asked for such a simple thing, and I was too selfish to worry about her. I always took her for granted and also said I would do things the next day because I just did not want to worry about it that day.
She says “… aunt Martha found me one right off. Everybody said I was lucky to have one come out here and I agreed to give her a dollar extry to make sure. She’ll be over tomorrow afternoon (Wharton 82)”. She does not discuss getting a new girl with Ethan at all.

Thinking I was going to mess it up, she pointed to Hollie and said, “This girl knows what I’m talking about. Let her do the talking and you do the paying.” I giggled. She began to ask if I had a credit card and if I could go to the ATM to get twenty dollars out for her to sleep at Salvation Army that night. I knew I had my parent’s credit card and I knew I didn’t want to steal their money so that is what I told her.

Ginny, a girl who had just moved into town and her first day of school began. The moment she saw Smitty, That’s when she right away was interested in him. She met a friend named Hally which told her all about Smitty. As Hally and Ginny were walking to their second period, Hally said “ he never smiles, he never frowns, and he never cries.” I think this quote means that Smitty is maybe scared to show his emotions because people might be asking him what had happened over the past 15 years on why he had been silent and not speaking.

Yen Mah wanted to go over to her house to celebrate more than anything in the world, but she could not bring herself to break Niang’s rules at first.
