The Awakening Chapter 31 Summary

  • Arobin hangs around with Edna after the others have left.
  • Without even cleaning up, Edna locks the doors of the big house, and Arobin walks with her to her new, small house, just around the corner.
  • Arobin sees that Edna is tired and he begins to stroke her hair and shoulders.
  • He says good night, but then doesn’t leave until Edna has become "supple to his gentle, seductive entreaties."
