A few minutes pass by as Chris asks about Holden. He starts talking about how he got kicked out of Pensey prep. He also talks about how he isn't really into all the money even though his parents are rich. Chris connects in on this as he has a similar situation too.
2. I might have to leave now I have a lot of work to get done
Chris cuts Holden off as he get's deeper into the conversation and tells him that it's time for him to leave. Chris is moving away from him before he get's too attached.
1. Pensey wasn't that great anyway...
Holden thinks of Chris as a big brother and gives him his hat so that he would remember him. He even lies to him about the hat even though he values it so much.
1. I want you to have this, thought it might be useful in Alaska... I don't really need it anyway
Holden really likes Chris at this point, mostly because of how real he is.
Nice talking to you too
Nice talking to you Holden..
As the day draws to an end, so does their short lasted relationship. A never-ending distance between them increases.
At the end of the day, Holden learns that changes in things or people aren't always permanent, and Chris learns that all rich people that live in the cities aren't always materialistic.
