Myrtle comes down the stairs, smiles, takes Tom's hand and looks him right in the eye. Tom's arrival is exciting....

She smiled slowly and, walking through her husband as if he were a ghost, shook hands with Tom, looking him flush in the eye. Then she wet her lips, and without turning around spoke to her husband in a soft, coarse voice:

“Get some chairs, why don’t you, so somebody can sit down.”
