2 bad. You are a farmer's wife now. What you used to be does not matter.
PAUL PLEASE STAY. I PROMISE I WON'T COMPLAIN ABOUT HOW BAD OF A FARMER YOU ARE!
If I stay we will only end up fighting all night. Cya Tomorrow...
Maybe Ellen was right?
The climax begins when Ellen and Paul get in a fight about the lifestyle of a farmer. Paul is a proud farmer and Ellen is not too keen on the idea.
Paul and Ellen's big fight ends. As Paul violently snatches his smock away from Ellens clutch and proceeds to walk out the door. He heads towards his stable to think.
Paul started to regret his actions. Meanwhile, this is where the real climax of the story is taking place. As in this moment, all of Ellens' hopes and dreams have been crushed. At this point, their marriage is emotionally over.
Maybe I really CANT provide for my future family. Should I quit farming?
Paul walked back into Ellen's Stall and proceeded to stand there in awkward but comforting silence. Ellen seemed to enjoy Paul's presence.
Paul just stood there as he listened to all the sounds of the empty stable. He could hear the storm outside and all of its wind. The wind made very particular sounds against the walls of the stables which Paul was able to pick up on. The first deep sense of quiet and peace was shrunken to the battered shelter of the stable.
Paul then looks at Prince, one of his starving horses. As he gently touched his ribs he wondered if he could provide for his future family. He thought to quit farming was the best choice. This concludes the climax of the Lamp at Noon.
