Curley's wife is no longer alive to realize her dream..... Lennie will be institutionalized at best....... and more than likely lynched for murder.

"I done a real bad thing," he said. "I shouldn’t of did that. George’ll be mad. An’ . . . . he said . . . . an’ hide in the brush till he come. He’s gonna be mad. In the brush till he come. Tha’s what he said." Lennie went back and looked at the dead girl. The puppy lay close to her. Lennie picked it up. "I’ll throw him away," he said. "It’s bad enough like it is." He put the pup under his coat, and he crept to the barn wall and peered out between the cracks, toward the horseshoe game. And then he crept around the end of the last manger and disappeared.
