Scout walks home and on her way there, she finds two pieces of gum in the radley's oak tree. She chews the pieces and tells Jem about this and he makes her spit it out.
Ugh, I hate school so much.
Once school ended dill came back and him, jem, and scout began their games again. In their game where they roll in old tires, on scout's turn she rolled in front of the radley's steps. Jem and scout start to panic but it gives jem the idea to start the "Boo Radley game".
Eventually, however Atticus catches them and asks if the game has anything to do with the Radleys. Jem lies, and Atticus goes back into the house. The kids wonder if it is safe to play their game anymore.
Jem and Dill grew really close , and Scout began to feel left out of the friendship. Because of this Scout started to talk to one of her neighbors, Miss Maudie Atkinson.
She tells Scout that Boo Radley is still alive and her theory that he was a victim of a harsh father. She also told her that he was always polite and friendly as a child.
Jem and Dill wanted to give a note to Boo inviting him to get ice cream, so they used a fishing pole to try to stick it to his window. Atticus catches them and tells them to leave the kid alone.
