Darl - Chapter 23 Summary

Jewel yells at the other pallbearers, urging them to walk faster. Unfortunately, none of them can keep up with Jewel. Anse is the first to fall off the pace and Cash quickly follows, hobbled by his broken leg. However, Jewel keeps moving and pulls the coffin so fast that he even leaves Darl behind. Jewel is unaffected and keeps going, carrying the coffin and manhandling it into the wagon all on his own.
