The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Answers 1Add Yours
Ridden with guilt, Tom apologizes, but tells Polly that he had meant to give her the piece of bark. Confused, Aunt Polly asks Tom: "Did you kiss me, Tom?" Upon hearing him admit that he did so because he loved her, she forgives him and sends him off to school. Aunt Poly is so touched that she thinks Tom's lie was from a good place.
