Are you sure this is in Chapter 7?

thats what my questions say its in

I think this is actually chapter 6. Ethan is pretty scared of eating alone with Mattie. Jotham's refusal to eat with them puts a certain stress and awkwardness in the situation. This is going to force Ethan and Mattie to express themselves.
