We NEVER touched Abby.
Tituba, Abigail, Betty, and all of the other girls were all using hysteria to convince the towns people that they were seeing the spirits of the people that they were accusing of witchcraft.
Throughout the whole story, Reverend Parris was only worried about his reputation in the town. At one point, he even lied to protect his "good" name.
When Abigail accused Elizabeth Proctor of witchcraft, Elizabeth and John notice right away that it is because Abigail wants John to herself. She still has feelings for him after their affair and thinks that he will too when Elizabeth is gone.
Lies and Deceit
Tituba told everyone that the Devil was telling her to kill Revered Parris because he isn't nice to her, he whips and abuses her a lot so she wanted to get her revenge on him by scaring him into being nicer to her.
He say Mr. Parris must be kill! Mr. Parris no goodly man, Mr. Parris mean man and no gentle man.
Giles was being tortured and they were pushing him to confess, if he did that, his family would lose all of the land, he didn't want that to happen so he let himself be killed.
