The next day, when Thomas J. and Vada were walking in the forest, they stumble across a beehive and Thomas J. decides to kick it down. He and Vada search for her mood ring which she lost, but they notice the bees starting to swarm. Thomas J. and Vada run from the bees and jump in a river to evade them.

On August 14, 1972, he and Vada share an innocent kiss under the tree by a river, and he then went into the woods alone to retrieve Vada's mood ring and stepped on a beehive. the bees start to surround him and sting him and he dies from an allergic reaction and loses his glasses. Harry tells Vada about his death, who was too upset to leave her room. When she attends Thomas J.'s funeral, she runs away to Mr. Bixler's house and learns that he is about to get married.
