His discomfort is revealed when Robert and his wife were sharing their experiences “about the major things that had come to pass for them in the past ten years” (100). He felt it was necessary to join in because he thought Robert would “think [he] left the room and didn’t want [his wife] to think [he] was feeling left out” (103). It is obvious the husband is overly involved with Robert’s handicap and fails to see him as a person with his
It was after Victor’s father left the reservation when Victor began to drink and become violent towards Thomas. Victor tried to avoid Thomas and his stories of his visions and traditions. He was almost embarrassed of his constant storytelling. Victor had even made it a point to tell Thomas that he “thinks about things too much”, meaning that he related everything to the Indian way of life and how things effected it. Throughout the years, even though Victor was just plain mean to Thomas, he always still seemed to be there to help Victor.
