As Henry flees through the forest, he hears loud crashes and roars through the darkening sky. It seems as if the world is being rent asunder. Henry, however, rationalizes his flight. Henry compares himself to the squirrel running away when he threw an acorn at it...... he sees his own flight in the same way....... simply a reaction to fear.
