A thin white scarf was loosely tied under her chin to protect this well-sprayed helmet of hair from even the possibility of a breeze. She smoothed the pants suit over her well-girdled hips and turned to the boy, who was leaning against the car with his hands in his pockets, dragging the jeans down even further. I could see and hear them clearly through the screen door, but neither one had noticed me. “I’ll just be a few minutes,” the woman said, starting toward the back steps. Joyce’s car was sitting in the yard waiting for Eddie to finish repairing its fuel pump, so they must have assumed she was home.

She had sent him 32 what looks like crazy on an ordinary day . . • to pick me up at an airport over an hour from where he was, which is the kind of favor you ask of a man who has more than a passing interest in you. I tried to remember the sound of Eddie’s voice when he said Joyce’s name.
