The narrator was much younger than Sammy was when he realized the crush he had for the girl. He therefore did not use intimate details to describe the girls’ physical appearance, as Sammy had done. Regardless of the age difference, the two young men realized the mistake they had committed for being in love and letting their sexual emotions direct them. Sammy was educated after the encounter with the three girls. Through the brief encounter at the store, Sammy was able to get rid of his ignorance and innocence by observing the three girls. The girls gave him the opportunity he had been yearning for and he was able to quit the store. The narrator also benefited from his encounter with the girl. Once the girl talked to him, he got the opportunity and the desire to go to the bazaar, and it was while he was there that he was able to see things as they were and he was no longer an innocent boy.
