Cooped up in the store, the man tells the son that they must talk to each other. He offers to tell his son a story, but the boy rejects him. “Those stories are not true…. In the stories we’re always helping people and we don’t help people” (225). The father says that the son should tell him a story, or even a dream of his, but the boy replies that his stories are more “like real life” (227), unlike his father’s stories
