What you have been asked to do is to step into the role of Gene after he has caused the accident.  He has a terrible amount of guilt inside him.  He is hoping that no one else saw what had happened, but he knows that people suspect something.  He carries around the guilt.

If you were Gene what would you be feeling?  To write a response you will have to put yourself in Gene's shoes.  Finny still cares about his friend.  Finny counts on Gene to be his friend and in some ways his legs.  He has high hopes and dreams for Gene and Gene does not let him down. 

As Gene you will need to tell how scared you were that someone would find out that you had jerked the branch.  Your gut must hurt from the idea.  Then, you come to realize that Finny really has nothing but love for you and wants things to be great for you.  This would make you feel eve more guilty.  Yet, you are enjoying being more of the top dog now that Finny can't compete athletically.
