Christopher, what did I tell you!?
Christopher stumbles upon Wellington, Mrs. Shears's dog. It has a fork in its body, and blood is dripping from the wound. Christopher wants to find out who killed the dog.
Christopher... I killed Wellington
Christopher goes around his neighborhood to ask his neighbors if they've seen anything related to the death of Wellington, despite his father telling him not to do so. The author writes, ¨Íḿ not allowed to talk to you.'And she said, 'Don worry. I'm not going to tell the police and I'm not going to tell your father, because there's nothing wrong with having a chat. Having a chat is just being friendly, isn't it."
Christopher finds out that his mother had cheated on his father. "I thought about this for a while and said, 'Do you mean that they had an affair?' And Mrs. Alexander said, 'Yes, Christopher. That is what I mean.'"
Christopher finds out that mother is not dead and has been writing to him. He reads her letters and finds out that she left Christopher to go with Mr. Shears. Christopher's father finds out that Christopher has been reading the letters, and apologizes for keeping the truth from him. Then his father admits that he killed Mr. Wellington.
