Let me help you put the right question. FYI Mary Jane Wilks is a character from the book "The adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and Becky Thatcher is a character from "The adventures of Tom Sawyer". Both are two different novels by Mark Twain.

And you've read it right; Huckleberry Finn does feel quite infatuated for Mary Jane Wilks and this is more like a stupid, innocent kind of a love.

But as far as I know, Becky Thatcher is the mad, childhood love interest of Tom Sawyer. Tom begins loving her the moment he sees her as she is very beautiful.
