Nicholas convinces John that the town is soon to be visited with a flood like the one that visited Noah  in the Bible and that, to survive, he must build and fasten three boat-like tubs to the rafters and store  within them provisions. John follows Nicholas' instructions, and the evening before the predicted  flood, all three — John the carpenter; Alison, John's wife, and Nicholas, Alison's paramour — climb  into the boats. When the carpenter sleeps, Alison and Nicholas quickly descend to Alison's bed  where they spend the night making love.

    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.
