in the beginning of chapter one we are introduced to the main charachters, Lennie Smalls and George Milton. These two charachters are best freinds, although they are complete opposites. Georege is more small and smart while Lennie is big and has special needs.
At the end of chapter 1 Lennie started to pet a lady's red dress. She started to yell and he panicked grabbing on tighty to her dress. She claimed it as sexual assult and that got lennie and george into some trouble.
