Why is Tom so conflicted in the scene in which he eavesdrops on Aunt Polly, Mrs. Harper, Mary, and Sid? Why do you think Tom kisses Aunt Polly and runs away without leaving the bark?

I think you are meaning chapter 15. Tom hurries back home only to peer through the sitting room window and see Aunt Polly, Sid, Mary, and Joe Harper's mother in a solemn state. Quietly sneaking through the door, Tom hides under the bed and eavesdrops on their conversation. Tom hears their sadness and wonders if he should tell them he is still alive. Please ask each of your questions one at a time. Thanks.
