In As I Lay Dying, both Darl and Cash believe that sex is the reason their brother Jewel sneaks out every night, and each tries to imagine whom he is "rutting" with (131). Darl thinks she is a "girl" he probably knows, but can't "say for sure" which one (132). (It turns out, as Cash says later, that "it aint a woman" at all, 133.)
