Another external conflict between characters comes with Dill's running away from home as a result of a conflict with a father-figure who competes with him for the attentions of his mother.

An internal conflict in Chapter 14 of "To Kill a Mockingbird" is evident in Jem's struggles to become an adult.  At one moment he maturely urges Scout not to worry her father with trivial problems, then he fights with Scout and has to be separated by Atticus, and then he again seems as adult as he informs Atticus of Dill's surprise arrival.

One of the many conflicts that appear in Chapter 14 is the quarrel between Aunt Alexandra and Atticus. Scout is taken aback as she cannot remember a time when anyone has "fussed" with her father. It is through this incident that the reader starts to feel the tension of the trial and the impact it is having on the family.
