Maybe I shouldn't be doing this, maybe I should act more of a woman and teach them not to be rude to others.
Y'all children get the stones; I'll show you how to use 'em.
It ain't right. Ain't no man ought to eat his woman's food year in and out, and see his children running wild. What must a man do, tell me that?
Lizabeth stop, please stop!
One summer day, Lizabeth's brother, Joey wanted to do something mischevious. He had suggested going to torture, Miss Lottie. All of Joey's friends agreed to throw pebbles at her gorgeous marigolds. In this situation, Lizabeth has to decide to either tell them not to fool around and disturb Miss Lottie or join them. She decides to let her inner child take over and join the rebels.
Going to sleep the same day, Lizabeth felt a feeling of overwhelming guilt. The same night, she had heard her father complaining to her mother that he does not earn for his family. His feelings are so strong that he breaks out into a heavy sob. Hearing this, Lizabeth realizes that her whole family has turned upside down.
Lizabeth woke up her brother and told him that they would be going on an adventure. When her brother and she ran out of the house, she ran to Miss Lottie's and started viciously ripping out her stunning marigolds. Joey noticed that Miss Lottie was watching the whole scene. Lizabeth stared into her eyes and perceived that what she had done had been her last childhood deed for she had become a woman.
