During the meal both forgot all about their extreme exhaustion and talked some with Jimmy and one of his brothers – mostly about the girls outside the dome, the parties, and the good times. They just couldn't pick their jaws up about what Tom and James had told them. Even though they were both very mature for their age – Jimmy's brother, John, was just a year older than him, so 15 – they were still very curious at heart. They wanted to know all about their lives, but Tom and James both had to be very careful not to have their stories clash or tell too much.
The conversation was going the wrong way completely. It was them who needed information about the inside of the dome, not the other way around, but every time they tried to learn more about the life inside, a new question arose about the life outside. At some point they started to answer their questions merely with a “yes” or a “no”, and blamed it on their exhaustion, so they wouldn’t need to give any more explanations. They had hoped that would make Jimmy and John talk more, but it wasn’t the case. Instead, they all just went silent, and ate.
It wasn’t until the two women brought dessert to the table that they spoke again, even though it was mainly about either work, or the ingredients of the dessert, that Jimmy and John both badly wanted the two gunslingers to guess. It was made of Sophie’s homemade strawberry jam, thick yogurt and crunched nuts, all of which they also guessed. Simple, yet very delicious.
