A deep, soft voice slid between them. “Now don’t tell me. ” Ralph Forsyth, who had begun drinking at six the evening before and had not stopped since, lifted his bourbon in a toast. “To Sally Heissenhuber! A beautiful—” He listed to the left and grabbed Sally’s shoulder for support. ” His puffy face had the purple luminosity of the binge drinker. His body was severe and lean. ” He didn’t wait for Richard’s nod. “Come on, Snowﬂake Sal. ” He slid his arm around Sally’s waist. “Love to be around the pretty ladies,” he said to Richard, who looked stupeﬁed.
He sipped the last of his drink. ” he whispered. ” He was drunk and getting sloppy, but Sally couldn’t ﬁgure out what to do. He was her husband’s boss, so she couldn’t offend him. She couldn’t tell him to get his clammy claw off her and that he was an old fart with nose veins who was stewed to the ass. Besides, what he had said about Richard keeping her locked up really made sense. Here she was, thirty-six years old with so much to offer, and her biggest thrill in life was Dr. Plum’s asking her to make her lima bean and green onion salad for the Elders’ annual dinner.
Richard recognized he was not one of the guys. He knew his contemporaries found him too serious. But for a time he had hopes that he would be accepted and make his parents proud. In his ﬁrst year at the University of Cincinnati, he had been tapped for the best fraternity on campus, a fraternity of rich young men. But after his pledge class’s initiation, few bothered with him. They discovered his father was a teller, not the banker they had assumed. He was treated with hurtful courtesy. Still, he hung on the fringes of fraternity life, realizing he needed some brightness and fun.
