Pointer played her like a deck of cards!
"When all of him had passed but his head, he turned and regarded her with a look that no longer had any admiration in it" (O'Connor 194).
I felt so bad for Hulga. She had spent over thirty years of her life being different and finally she thought she had found someone who appreciated her for it. Wasn't she wrong! Pointer played her like a deck of cards! At the begining I thought she was the character that I did not really like because she was rude and non caring. I never thought that by the end of the story I would have sympathy for her.
