This exemplified John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. Lennie, who has a mental disability, is mercy killed by his partner and friend, George. George took it upon himself to take Lennie’s life, and he did it out of a sense of companionship and friendship to spare him from what Curley might have forced upon Lennie.

Of Mice and Men; A Literary Analysis “I got you to look after me, and you got me to look after you, and that 's why,” says George in the book Of Mice and Men. John Steinbeck wrote this book about two boys who took care of each other mentally and physically throughout. They endure many journeys together and are able to suffice over very little. They show the strength in friendships in many dissimilar ways and make diligent decisions that some may never be able to make. Of Mice and Men is not only about two friends and their journey together, but as well as giving one a deeper meaning of the book, such as showing the nature of their dreams, the characters as archetypes, and if the killing of Lennie is justified in the end.
