Curley's wife is terribly lonely. She knows she can get Lennie to talk with her while the other men are playing games outside. Lennie easily lets down his guard. Lennie is crying because he has killed his puppy. Curley's wife says he can get another one. She complains about nobody talking to her and then, thinking Lennie is like a child, lets Lennie pet her hair.
