I feel so lonely and and scared. Should I wake up Joey?
Introduction to Mrs. Lottie and her son, John Burke in the squeaky rocking chair, while Lizabeth and her brother observe them.
Lizabeth can not go to sleep, because she is scared and full of fear, because her dad or most people can not find a job due to, "the great depression", and is pondering whether to wake up her brother, Joey.
Lizabeth sits on the ruined Marigolds, realizing she had made a huge, childish move, and she sees Mrs. Lottie as kind elderly lady in search for some happiness, meanwhile Mrs. Lottie stares at her with a brokenhearted face.
