Pearl and hussein standing in the class room. Pearl is trying to find out about him and his background and where he is from.
Pearl, Bruce and Hussein standing in the classroom. Bruce is standing with a ruler in his hand about to hit Hussein-Pearl says, "stop it Bruce you will hurt someone." but Bruce rises his ruler and slams it down over Hussein shoulder, surprisingly he didn't move or even flinch.
Pearl and her little sister Suzy went for a walk to the plant nursery, there they found Hussein standing at a mandarin tree smelling the fruit and listening to the leaves. Pearl asked, "hi shah, whatcha doing?" she then introduced (well half) introduced her little sister suzy to him. Hussein said, "its growing there all groving"
in this scene pearl had just been through a life changing experience, her little sister Suzy had just been in a tragic car accident and had passed away. pearl was very miserable and sad and barely talked. she did not come back to school for another couple of days after the incident.
Pearl came back to school, at first she was still sad and barely talked to anyone. Until Hussein walked up to her and squeezed her arm and without talking to her leaded her away as if he had done it before many times. Pearl and the shah began to laugh and share lunches and invited Bruce to sit with them. From then on pearl and everyone else changed from calling the shah the shah and changed to huss or Hussein.
