Janie, Tea Cake and Motor Boat were all huddled together, sitting on the floor and watching nothing but the door.... " Six Eyes Were Question God."
Leaving Motor Boat
Janie, Tea Cake and Motor Boat left the house, They were walking to find higher ground, dodging flying objects, making sure to not step in holes while walking. The Storm was pounding their backs
Tea Cake gets bit
Janie, Tea Cake and Motor Boat all realize that the lake busted through and is gushing water towards them and now they are moving fast to find shelter.
Tea Cake dies
Janie and Tea Cake try to convince Motor Boat to head to the Palm Beach road with them because the lake is coming and its dangerous. Motor decides to stay because he's tired and safe and could move up to the second floor. With that they part ways.
" Ah'm safe here, man. Go ahead if yuh wants to. Ah'm sleepy."
" aw, get up, Motor Boat! Less make it tuh de Palm Beach road, Dat's on uh fill. We'se pretty safe dere."
Janie holds onto a cow's tail while a rabid dog is trying to bit her. She calls for help and Tea Cake manages to stab the dog but the dog ends up latching its teeth on Tea cakes arm.
" TEA CAKE! HELP!:"
Tea Cake was infected with the Rabies from the dog. He had tried to bit her and in self defense Janie had shot him out of love.
