This scene was written as the first memory that Doodle and Brother had. As brother peeked his head from below the bars of the bed doodle thought to himself; is this my big brother?
wow, this must be my big brother
Its so pretty. So pretty, pretty, pretty.
For heaven's sake, what's the matter?
Brother brought me to such a nice place today. Ive never seen anything so pretty. i hope we can come here every day just me and him.
Touch the coffin or I'm going to leave you
Brother brought me to this scary barn today. i didnt like it at all. He was saying all these mean things to me, especially about this casket. He kept telling me it was mine but im sure it wasnt. Because caskets are for dead people, and im not dead im alive. Then he told me to touch it but i didnt want to. He said that if i didnt touch iit then he would leave me. I didnt want brother to leave me, so i touched the casket
Why is brother making me do such scary things..
C'mon doodle you can do this. Dont you want to learn to walk?
Why doesnt brother listen to me, i cant do this
This is when Brother was trying to make doodle walk. Brother doesnt understand me at all. i dont care if im not like the rest of the kid's in school. why does he keep pushing me, i keep telling him i just cant do it
this is where doodle became overwhelmed with sorrow for sympathy of this scarlet ibis. He finds a strange resemblance to it and himself, so he decides to burry it in the backyard
In this slide doodle is begging for his brother to come back and to not leave him. He's wondering why his brother keeps running from him. This will be the last time brother will ever hear him cry again
