Maybe Iwasn’t as true to her as I could’ve been.CHAS Well, she says --ROYALLet’s not rehash it, Chassie. An Indian man with salt-and-pepper hair, dressed in pink pants, a white shirt and a white apron, comes in from thekitchen with a Martini on a tray.

A label on it says “Wild Javelina, Andes Mountains.” Under the stairs there is a telephone room thesize of a closet. Old messages are tacked to the walls, and the children’s heights are marked on the door frame. A thirty-three-year-old woman with a scarf around her neckand sunglasses on top of her head talks on a rotarytelephone. She is Etheline.
