BNW Chapter 8
This chapter primarily deals with John. Bernard is asking him to recall his youngest memories.
He would find his mom sleeping with other men.
Women would attack her because she was sleeping with their men
She didn't understand and would cry because she was used to getting whomever she wanted when she wanted
Everyone would ridicule John and Linda at celebrations or just in general
Linda tries to teach John to read but he has many questions, like any child would
He questions the other place, doesn't quite understand it yet.
Bernard asks John to come back with him but he agrees only if Linda could come to.
Bernard agrees because he wants to use Linda and John like leverage against the director.
Bernard does not want to get sent away so he is formulating some sort of plan to use them.
