Leo rides his bicycle home, excited at the prospect of inventing a Happiness Machine. He arrives home and is greeted by his six children with news that they have ice cream. Inside, he tells his wife of his plans, which only makes he ask if something is wrong.


This chapter sets up the main tension of this subplot, between Leo’s ambitious plan for a happiness machine and the needs of his family.
