Introduction

He had a beard. That was the first thing I noticed. And where was his suit? To be honest with you, I didn't realize it was Eddie at first, when they brought him up, I mean. He seemed to have changed from the last time I had seen him but to be honest with you I was quite tired after arriving in such a rush. When I did look down I hardly recognized him at first, standing there so far away with his head bent, just like when he couldn't have his own way as a child.

As I was trying to get home, I could not stop thinking about what Eddie had done but I suppose he is being punished now and it is time to move on.
