The family lived in North Carolina and the Family consisted of Mother, Father, Doodle, Aunt Nicey, and our narrator the brother.
don't leave me brother
why is he like this.....
Brother thinks of Doodle as a disappointment to his family. Doodle is not normal and that is why brother hates him. Brother thinks that since Doodle can not do normal things like a "normal" kid he wants to kill him.
its all my fault!!!!
Brother is so embarced of Doodle that he teaches him to walk and pushes him to his limits. Brother was so mean to Doodle most of the time. Doodle found a very weak Scarlet Ibis in the tree in there front yard and watched it die.
If only my pride did not get in the way maybe my brother would be here.
It was pouring down rain and Brother and Doodle were trying to make it home. Then Doodle made brother upset so Brother started sprinting away. Brother didnt know that doodle was dead.
Brother realized that Doodle wasn't coming s we went back and found him lying in a pool of blood. Brother covers him up and holds him while crying.
Brother is coming to the realization that it is his pride that caused Doodle to die.
