Example text

The black man says to me, “Kid, you go on back inside and ax for the security man. Ax at any them counters. They give you the security man. ” I wonder if there will be black people where I’m going. I wonder if I’ll get to know any. I wonder if they’ll like me. I smile. I don’t know what to say. The black man waits a minute. He takes another puff on his Camel, blows on the ash, smiles at me, and walks on down the sidewalk. That’s when I get scared. four I go inside, but I don’t see the security man.

I don’t know their number. They live in a town called Widow Rock, but I don’t know where it is. All I’ve got is the wallet Mom gave me with Roy Rogers and Trigger on it and the rest of my plane ticket, and a five-dollar bill Dad gave me. Maybe I should walk down the terminal until I find a plane that’s leaving and give them my ticket and go back home to Omaha and tell Dad I decided to stay with him. Tell him I’ll learn how to cook and stay out of trouble and look after the house when he goes to visit Mom, and I won’t kill Jimmy Pultney.

Not after my mom went to the hospital. They talk like I’m not here, and all the time I look at my mom and think how pretty she is, even without the lipstick and the dress with the slips that sizzle and the stockings with straight seams. How she looks just like the ladies in the magazines and at church and at the PTA except she’s Japanese, and her skin is dark, and her eyes are turned up at the edges. After a while, my dad says it’s time to go, and I look at him like he doesn’t know what he’s doing.
