I can tell Hester is becoming more involved in society because we visit the village more often and I'm seeing new faces. People are starting to interpret me as "able" instead of "adultery", but I'm not sure how I feel about that (Chapter 13).
Hester seems to feel the same about this weird old man, because I think she hates him now. Pearl just made the letter A out of green eel grass. It kind of reminds me of something I saw when I looked in the mirror once. Pearl wants to know what something called "the scarlet letter" means. I am not sure what they are talking about exactly, but Pearl keeps glancing at me (Chapter 15).
OOOUUUUUUCCCHHHHHH that hurt!! I cried as I was flying through the air. I hit the ground with a crunch as I tried to process what was happening. All of a sudden I hear Pearl screaming at the top of her lungs. She wasn't stopping and I was getting a serious headache. Then, I feel Hester's gentle hands as she picks me up and puts me back on her chest. I sigh in relief as Pearl's screaming dies down. I don't know much about anything, but I wonder if I was the reason Pearl was acting out. Pearl bends down and kisses me and I blush but she couldn't tell because I am already red.(Chapters 18 and 19).
As you can see, I am taking a nap because I wasn't a very relevant symbol in chapters 14, 16, and 17.
In this story, the scarlet letter takes us a journey through its eyes that gives the reader insight on the role of the symbol.
