Lennie and George are migrant workers that constantly travel. They were running away from these people from the old farm who were on horses chasing them with guns because Lennie strangled someone at the old farm.
Cury started punching Lennie repeatedly for no reason and Lennie started bleeding from the head. George then told Lennie to do something and Lennie caught Curlys punch and grabbed on to his hand nearly breaking his hand.
Lennie was in a room alone and curlys wife comes to the room and tries to talk to Lennie. Lennie told her to go away because she was trouble but she didn't listen to him. She walked up to Lennie and notice something was wrong with him and she let him pet her hair because she knows he likes soft things to pet but she started to struggle because he was messing her hair up and then Lennie snap her neck while she was moving.
Lennie is freaking out because his of his aunt. Aunt Clare tells him that he always do bad things. She tells him shes tired of him and that she thi.nks he should leave
George found Lennie and was talking to him so he can stop freaking out. After George was talking to him he aims the gun at Lennie and kills him. Slim seen George kill Lennie and then offer him to go to the bar.
Lennie was involved in a situation where he almost killed another person. While Lennie is staying in the new farm he started to mess around with Curlys wife and that shows a hint that something might happen to Lennie later on.
