This is also expressed in the passage when Golding writes: “The squirrel leapt on the wings of the wind and clung to another standing tree, eating downwards”(44).

In "The Monkeys Paw" Mr. White makes a wish for money. He didn’t know it at first but he made the mistake of killing his son. He was told that there will be consequences but he ignored it.
