' 'So I run oul on the landing anc tillered to her, 'I'm leaving, do ou hear, leaving!' And Brodsky pens his door a crack and says. Veil, just so you do it quietly.' \nd Bobo and Ida laugh harder lan ever, and I hear them go oul ie door downstairs. "1 went back inside and picked ip my camera and put it in a box, nd then I sat down and just held he box awhile. I thought maybe was going to be sick. 1 knew [ ouldn't spend another nighl under hat roof; I haddo leave. So I got big cardboard box and put my luff in it. Just my good clothes, mostly, and some pictures and the litmera. • • • •'("'DING out the door I remcm- bered the turkey, and I wcnl back and got it, even though it was >retty heavy with the box anc ill. 1 got on a street car and went downtown. I didn't know what to do. It was terrible cold, snow slowing, slush underfoot. I'd hav< gone to a hotel, but I didn't wan that turkey to spoil. I went up to a guy on the street and asked him if he'd like a 25-pound turkey, al ready stuffed, and he must, thought I was drunk or crar.y something. He just said, 'Merry Christmas, yourself,' and walkec oft. "So I got on another street ca and came out to your house, bu when 1 got here the windows wcr dark. I stood around on the side walk for a long time. I didn't hm inj idea what tun* U wa*. couldn't phone you. Finally I gul so cold, 1 couldn't hardly stand it —I went ahead and rang the bell." He fell silent. We sat for awhila watching the orange flames. Presently 1 spoke. "David. Tm to blame for this. Fve made a mess of your life." "No!" he protested. "Don't you see, before you started leaching me and helping me improve myself. I didn't have anything .to. fall back on, I just went around in a fog, like, wondering how I'd ever b« able Xo stand living ihc rest of my life. I grabbed a-hold of everything that would make me forget who I was and what I was. Now I know which way I'm going. Now 1 wanla learn more about everything. Because the more you know, seems like, the more you enjoy." ,TK paused, as though to let tht " significance of this sink in. hen he continued. "Now. things an't ever get me down again to point where I wanla die. Be- ause no matter what happens, ve got something up here." He apped his temple with one cal- oused finger. "But look," I insisted, "1 stuck iy nose in, and. as a result, your larriage Is wrecked." "It was a wreck long before hal. Fact is, I was a wreck loo v I can start living all over again. I hope she divorces me quick. Probably she will, so she ran marry Bobo." "Where will you live?" "Oh, I'll have to look around for * room, I guess." He sighed and leaned his head back against his Clasped hands, "One of my students Is leaving January 1 to take a job," 1 said. 'He lives a block the other side of the Museum. Nice room. Landlady leUs him have a hot plate. If it hasn't been rented already. I'll do some telephoning tomorrow." "Swell. ,Say, got any crackers ot anything? 1-haven't had a thing since lunch, and here it is—why- it's midnight! Merry Christmas!"
