This chapter begins depicting Eatonville in shock having realized that the wealthy widow Janie and the penniless Tea Cake are doing everything - especially common activities which Joe had previously forbidden - together. Janie's friend Pheoby Watson talks with her about the town's concerns, only to find that Janie is well aware that every suitor after her has ulterior motives to attain her deceased husband's property. Moreover, Janie informs Pheoby that she and Tea Cake have already planned to marry; Janie has resolved to try Tea Cake out, planning to move somewhere new and start all over. Janie concludes with the self-empowering determination, "Dis ain't no business proposition, and no race after property and titles. Dis is uh love game. Ah done lived Grandma's way, now Ah means tuh live mine" (108).
