Don’t let him do it.” But Lennie only covered his face with his hands that were getting drenched in blood from his nose. Curley attacks Lennie in the stomach.

He was suddenly is a panic and shoved hay over a mysterious object. I wondered why he would be so sneaky and mysterious and quickly asked him what it was.
