Beloved Chapter 4
Denver, feeling neglected, sparks a fight between Sethe and Paul D by asking him how long he's planning to hang around 124. Sethe and Paul D argue over the way she handles her daughter. Sethe's defense of Denver's behavior leads Paul D to wonder whether there is room for him in their lives. He convinces Sethe to give it a try, and they decide to kick off their future by going to a carnival the next day. At the carnival, all three of them have fun and people even speak politely, if hesitantly, to Denver and Sethe because Paul D is so friendly.
