Quote #10

If we were such good friends, how come you couldn't get over it? (1940.75)

Is it possible that it's Nel who betrays Sula in the incident with Jude? By judging Sula like the other women in the Bottom, does Nel betray all that the two women shared as girls? Here Sula places the blame firmly on Nel's shoulders, challenging her to question why she let their friendship disintegrate.
