Calpurnia Written by Andrew, Jonathan B. Well there certainly were, and Calpurnia was one of them.
As she ponders his whereabouts, she feels something like a snake fall around her shoulders and screams, only to look up and see her husband standing over her with the bullwhip he uses to ride the horses. Delia is quite angry because her husband purposefully made it look like a snake and she scolds him.
He is bound and determined to fight with her and keeps trying to provoke her with his words. Sykes finally leaves his wife alone to ponder her unhappy life and marriage. He is sleeping with another woman, Bertha, and he spends all of her hard-earned money buying her trite gifts.

He refuses to get rid of it, even though it is driving Delia mad. Although it had just had a large meal when Sykes caught it, it begins to grow hungry again and always rattles around, scaring Delia to death.
