The story is a metaphor. When the girl scout visits the old ladies, she is baffled and horrified. As she leaves she eats a bite out of an apple, returning to reality from the misery of the home. The home itself is grotesque and unreal. The apple is real. By biting it, the girl forsakes the horror of the home for her reality, hoping she never has to accept theirs.
