“Nora, my sister, just sucked up to the old woman for the penny she got every Friday out of the old-age pension,”(361) being jealous of his sister getting more attention from his grandmother really got to Jackie, but he felt by confessing that he would’ve seemed foolish. People would have criticized his jealousy as amateur and not a good reason to hold so much hate inside, at least that’s what Jackie was thinking before confessing to his wrong doings. “Father gave me a flaking; Mother interfered, and for days after that he didn’t speak to me.” (361) When his father sided with Nora that was another reason for Jackie’s anger, and jealousy towards Nora to grow.
