An’ we’ll have maybe a pig an’ chickens.” He shakily raised the gun to the back of Lennie’s head “An’ down the flat we’ll have a little piece alfalfa.” “For the rabbits,” Lennie shouted. “For the rabbits,” George repeated. From the brush came the huge crack of a gun being fired. George dropped his gun, and Lennie was frozen in time for a split second, then he fell over in front of George’s feet. He was gone.
