Scarlett has, for a long time, dismissed Melanie as senseless, gullible, or powerless. She might be guileless. However, these chapters demonstrate she is neither senseless nor powerless. She is distinctly great and desires the best for others. To shield Scarlett, Melanie will threaten her associations with others; she additionally gives Rhett a chance to speak out his darkest and most guarded secrets, regardless of how awkward this makes her.
Notably, Scarlett and Rhett’s love shows how mindless individuals can be, notwithstanding whether they care profoundly about one another. As Rhett has noted previously, Scarlett is capable of harming anybody who adores her. With respect to Rhett, he showed his best qualities at the point when Bonnie was conceived; now his most exceedingly-bad ones goes to the fore.
As brutal as Rhett can be, his conduct is dependably a response to Scarlett’s. At the point when Scarlett reveals to him she is pregnant once more, his first reaction is to attack her, yet she dismisses. When he turns against her, she counters in kind. At long last, she tosses herself at him to assault him, but he obstructs her; she tumbles down the stairs after hitting his arm and losing her footing. Rhett’s brutality is, in a real sense, out of caution.
Despite the fact that both Rhett and Scarlett have acted inappropriately, it is hard not to feel for them as Scarlett lies wriggling with pain in bed. Scarlett needs Rhett, yet she will not call for him in anticipation of being rejected. Outside her door, Rhett waits for her to call and is surprised that she does not. Both have been hurt so often, and they will never again risk their hearts for each other, yet they still desire to give it a second thought.
