The narrator admits that many times he was cruel to Doodle. One time he takes him to the barn and showed him the casket the family had had made for him, because they believed he was going to die. He forces Doodle to touch it and threatens to leave him in the spooky barn himself if he doesn't. Doodle screams and will not move after he touches it, so the narrator carries him out of the barn as he screams, "Don't leave me. Don't leave me."
