I think from what I understand is that Dillard was that  even if she got in trouble she is still happy because of the experience of knowing that she learn a lesson that other people don't give up so easily especially when the man wasw chasing them. Others would easily give up,but the man chased them for so long and the thrill of losing him,and finding him again gave Dillard that rush and only after the man caugth them and let them off easy gave her a sense of happiness.
