Jesse where are you going? An early morning run again!
shhhhh! go back to sleep
Jesse Brenda bought a see through blouse and Mamma is throwing a fit!
Bye May Belle
But Jesse I wanna come too!
May Belle is an innocent little girl who loves her brother and relies on him for assurance in all things, but does not understand him.
Jesse do something janis stole my Twinkies, please do something!!
May Belle adores her brother and grabs any opportunity to involve him in her world. She wishes that he did the same for her but it’s as though he doesn’t realise how important he is to his little sister.
Oh my God!!
Shh! Guess what May Belle, there is a rumour going around about a beautiful girl who is coming to be the new queen of Terabithia!
May Belle feels left out and is angry about being ignored. She isn’t jealous of their friendship, she just wants to be a part of it too. She wishes that she had what Jess and Leslie have and the only way that she can deal with it is by throwing a tantrum.
May Belle realises that she matters and that Janis should not have taken her Twinkie. Even though May Belle is still dependent on Jesse for help, we can see that she is trying harder to deal with her problems without bothering him. She is growing up and becoming more resilient.
May Belle is over the moon. She finally knows that Jesse does care, and even though she felt bad about taking Leslie's place, she knew that her and Jesse would build great new memories together.
