He broke her neck!

Sorry, hit the wrong key.........

Lennie was in a panic. His face was contorted. She screamed then, and

Lennie’s other hand closed over her mouth and nose. “Please don’t,” he begged.

“Oh! Please don’t do that. George’ll be mad.”

She struggled violently under his hands. Her feet battered on the hay and she

writhed to be free; and from under Lennie’s hand came a muffled screaming.

Lennie began to cry with fright. “Oh! Please don’t do none of that,” he begged.

“George gonna say I done a bad thing. He ain’t gonna let me tend no rabbits.”

He moved his hand a little and her hoarse cry came out. Then Lennie grew

angry. “Now don’t,” he said. “I don’t want you to yell. You gonna get me in

trouble jus’ like George says you will. Now don’t you do that.” And she

continued to struggle, and her eyes were wild with terror. He shook her then,

and he was angry with her. “Don’t you go yellin’,” he said, and he shook her;

and her body flopped like a fish. And then she was still, for Lennie had broken

her neck.
