Chapter 31 is more of a passing chapter, than full of crucial plot points. There's not a great deal here more than some helpful exposition, besides the mild conflict between Adam and Cathy. Cathy's fear, however, is significant. Think of wild animals and how they respond to the emotion.
- Lee says that Adam can be "dishonest in a lot of ways, but not in that way." What does he mean? When has Adam been dishonest?
- What does Cathy think Adam is trying to do when he comes with the letter to her ... er ... establishment?
- Why is Cathy afraid of Adam? (an answer much like that of Cal's fear of Lee in the last chapter)
- "...her body shook with something that felt like rage and also felt like sorrow." Again, Adam does the Cathy what Aron did to Cal. Contrast the instances.
