Bill and Sam drove up to Johnny's house, and asked him if he wanted candy. Johnny put up a fight, but they got him in the buggy, and drove away.
Later after they brought Johnny to the cave, he had a change of character, and started misbehaving. He also started harming Bill, which made Sam upset.
After Bill and Sam sent the letter to Ebeneezer Doreset, he switched the aufer around and told Bill and Sam, to pay him two hundred fifty dollars and he will take his son back, instead of them getting money.
Sam and Bill decided to return Johnny home, and pay the two hundred fifty dollar fine. They also decided that, because they have had enough of Johnny's behavior.
Johnny's father said he could only hold his son from ruining for ten minutes, so that is how long they had to run from the house or else the boy will catch them and stay with them.
The theme is, think before you do. I chose this theme because the men didn't think about what they were getting them self's into.
