‘Nigger, I could get you strung up on a tree so easy, it ain’t even funny.’ This statement is intimidating and suggests that she can get Crook’s hanged as he was rude to her and that she can get him lynched.

So she turned for comfort to matt. If she’d had more friends, or if her mother had had family living near, or if Calvin hadn’t alienated the whole community … then maybe Marie would not have needed to turn so hard, so appealingly to Matt.
