Beloved Chapter 4 Summary
So everything's happy at 124, right?
Well, not exactly.
As Denver sees it, things are even more rotten than they were when the house was haunted.
"Hate" might be a strong word for what Denver feels about Paul D… but then again, it might be pretty accurate. She's nasty to Paul D whenever she gets the chance.
Sethe gets mad at her about it, but Paul D tells Sethe to let Denver alone. He's convinced that she'll come around and start liking him eventually.
He does get frustrated with Denver though (who would blame him?) and tells Sethe about it.
Immediately, Sethe gets furious.
can say things about Denver, but no one else can.
Paul D can't believe how much Sethe loves Denver. And the first thing he thinks about is how dangerous it is for a "used-to-be-slave" to love anything.
After all, wasn't slavery all about teaching you not to love or trust anything?
Anyhow, Paul D's got a plan to help Denver start to like him.
The carnival is in town and doesn't everybody love the carnival?
Sethe's not so sure since she doesn't go to town very much (remember that whole pariah thing). But finally she agrees.
Everyone in town stares at Sethe, but Paul D's friendliness is contagious.
They all end up having a great time, including Denver, who buys lots and lots of candy.
Soon, even Denver's smiling.
As they walk home, it looks like their shadows are holding hands.
