Lymon is more or less the helper of boy willie. He has had a bit of a less important character in the play thus far. His role has been on the back burner for a while now. He came with boy willie from the farm to sell the watermelons. I believe his most important line has been: I'm happy he didn't say he was looking for me. It's important because of how it shows that he's superstitious and still has fears of the past.
