Of Mice and men Epilogue: after ten years
After raising money for five years, George and Candy managed to buy a ranch. They committed five more years to improve the ranch.it was a small ranch, but it had a hen house, a barn, and land to farm. Finally they had a house, for Candy and George. The place was fairly clean and comfortable.
Right beside the fireplace, Candy was brushing his dogâ€™s hair, his name was pugs. George sat around the fireplace, Candy said, Today, I got twenty eggs. We are getting richer, Lennie would have laughed with happiness. George stepped near Candy, yeah, he would have slept with the rabbits and dogs. I wish Lennie was here, if he was here, I might have let him tend the rabbits inside. Candy was ...view middle of the document...
That horrible man should have had died earlier, he deserved it.
Georgeâ€™s five year old son, Jack, interrupted, dad, whoâ€™s Lennie?
George turned on him. You should knock on the door before you come in. Jack looked up, but, I was going to ask you to name my rabbit. The brown one doesnâ€™t have one yet. Lennie is a good name, isnâ€™t it? Who is Lennie? George said, you donâ€™t know him heâ€™s not important, jack said he was gonna name his rabbit Lennie.
Why wonâ€™t you tell jack the story, because itâ€™s the past and itâ€™s not important, Candy said if itâ€™s not important why do you care so much, let jack here the story. In that way, Lennie will be remembered, George said ok. Jack held Georgeâ€™s hand, Please dad, let me just hear it.
George had been submitted, and started the story. Jack, your father had a friend, named Lennie. He was a nice guy he really was, He liked soft things, rabbits and pups, but I should not have allowed those things. Jack wondered, whatâ€™s wrong with rabbits and pups I like those things too, George went on, nothing was wrong with those things, but the world and people. Nobody knew he is a nice guy. They werenâ€™t looking at him as a person but instead his size. Yeah, that was right, Lennie was the nicest person you could ever meet. Candy smiled, Jack, I tell ya, Lennie was a nice person, but he wasnâ€™t meant for this world. He didnâ€™t have a brain, but He was too nice to live in this world.
Jack wondered, soâ€¦ where is he? Whereâ€™s Lennie? What happened to him, I want to meet him, dadâ€™s friend. Candy said in spite, Jack, Lennie isnâ€™t around here. This place is too mean for the nice guy like him. He is tending rabbits, farming his own land, and meeting only kind people, just like him.
