Lizebeth is upset because her parents were arguing and her dad started crying. she didn't want to be alone so she went to her brother and told him that they were going for a walk so she took him to Mrs. Lotties yard and started stomping and ruining her flowers

Now Lizebeth is starting to approach adulthood because she feels guilty and realizes that what she did was wrong and now she knows that she has to think before she acts and think about how her actions may effect others.
