_____ 1. [Inez] wore a white dress, white shoes, a blue gingham apron, and a kerchief on her head.

_____ 2. I clamped my jaws so tight the veins in my neck felt as if they would burst. I wanted to scream at my aunt; I was screaming inside.

_____ 3. “You going with us up the quarter,” my aunt said, as though I hadn’t said a word. “You going up there with us, Grant, or you don’t sleep in this house tonight.”

_____ 4. Jefferson became frightened. The old man was still alive. He had seen him. He would tell on him.

_____ 5. “Do you see anyone here who could plan a murder, a robbery, can plan—can plan—can plan anything?...No, gentlemen, this skull here holds no plans.

_____ 6. Bear had been drinking, and his eyes were glossy, he walked unsteadily, grinning all the time as he continued around the counter.

_____ 7. Her large, dark face showed all the pain she had gone through this day, this past weekend. No. The pain I saw in that face came from many years past.

_____ 8. The whiskey burned him like fire—his chest, his belly, even his nostrils.

_____ 9. I figured that’s where most of their money went, on those gold teeth, that perfume, and payment on the new white Cadillac that Joe had parked before the door. But they were good people, both of them.

_____ 10. “And I teach what the white folks around here tell me to teach—reading, writing, and ‘rithmetic. They never told me how to keep a black boy out of a liquor store …Tante Lou, Miss Emma, Jefferson is dead. …He’s dead now. And I can’t raise the dead. All I can do is try to keep the others from ending up like this—but he’s gone from us.”
