Using all types of exaggerations and embroidering the story as much as possible, Tom tells of his  and Becky's wonderful adventure. He thoroughly enjoys the attention of the people who listened  intently to his every word. Three days and nights in the cave have drained the strength of both Tom and Becky; Tom gets better  in three days, but it takes a week for Becky to regain her strength. Meanwhile, Tom has heard of  Huck's illness, and he visits him, but the Widow Douglas refuses to allow Tom to tell about his  awesome adventure in the cave. Tom does hear that the ragged man was found drowned in the river  while trying to escape. About two weeks later, Tom goes by to visit Becky. Judge Thatcher tells him  that he has had the cave locked and secured so that no other children can get inside. "Tom turned as  white as a sheet" and explains that "Injun Joe is in the cave."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
