James is in the cave in the park when Alfred arrives. He is bleeding badly from a cut on his arm but  is more concerned about scoring another fix. Alfred wants to take him to the hospital, warning James  that he could lose his arm if not his life if he does not get medical attention soon. Alfred reminds  James of their long friendship and encourages him about the future, but James has little hope. He  says the police will arrest him. James fears incarceration for violating probation rules. As for the  future, he is sure that "Whitey" won't allow him to succeed. Alfred quickly tries to convince James to  adopt a different attitude, but his old friend has not learned the lessons of life that now bolster Alfred  and help him to overcome adversity. Finally, Alfred simply acts as though he is leaving. Facing  isolation, James gives in. With James leaning heavily on Alfred, the two exit the cave and start for

    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.
