Will #2, on pp. 18-19, portrays Will #1 as a little manipulative. Witness this little bit of dialogue:
"I told her Henry had gone to see Mei Lee, and she flew off the handle again because about Mei Lee getting more attention than she did. She calmed down, and I said we were going over to the Kearney School after he go back. I knew I was a ship sailing into a storm, but I couldn't not tell here. She'd learn about it soon enough anyway.
'Why are you going?'So, Will's kind of weasling out of the responsibility for not talking to Julie about things. Hmmm.
'To help him,' I said.
After a pause, 'You're going to help him?'
'He asked me to.'
'You said you would.'
'Yes,' I said.
'He asked you to help him, and you said yes.'
'You know yourself how convincing he is.'
'And you didn't talk to me first because,...?
'I'm sorry,' I lied.
'You don't sound sorry,' she said.
I said, 'We promised not to argue over long distance.'
What do you think of this? What are your ideas? I'd like to know. Post a comment.
