Slim was holding the right side of his face as it started to swell up and turn bright red, he rushed across the room of the bunkhouse and saw out of the corner of his eye Curlys wife, sitting alone at the table where they all played cards with a beer bottle in her hand sobbing. He tried to avoid her by looking for his pills on his dresser only to find soap, powder, and razors. Then suddenly he heard his pill bottle roll off the table and hit the floor. He immediately looked over to find that Curlys wife had taken all of them. She gets up to pick them up from off the floor but trips over her dress and hits her head on the black stove knocking herself out. Slim did not want to pick scraps with Curly if he were to find his wife passed out on the bunkhouse floor, so he rasseled her over his shoulder quickly and began to clear out when he hears someone opening the wooden latch of the door. He panics and throws Curlys wife out of the window next to his dresser and jumps out after her. He grabs her from up off the ground and attempts to bring her back to her house when he runs into Lennie who continuously asks, "What's wrong with Curlys wife?'', over and over again. Slim just tells him he's in a bit of a rattrap and to go away, and with that said he did. By this time Slim finally makes it to Curlys house and has made his way to Curlys wifes' room. He lays her on the bed and thinks to himself," I ain't takin' the rap for this," and as soon as he begins to clear out Curlys wife wakes up mumbling, telling him to stay. Slim replied sore as hell, "No! I ain't tryna start nothin' with Curly, you're poison, aint no good for nobody
