 I'm listening to Deacon King Kong.




Chapter 10: Soup

The morning after he visited Rufus, Sportcoat lay in bed trying to decide-with Hettie's help- whether to wear his plaid sportcoat or go with the straight yellow.  She was in a good mood and they were getting on quite well when the twang of an errant guitar interrupted them.  Hettie vanished as Sportcoat, irritated, lumbered over to the window, and looked down frowning as a crowd gathered in the plaza at the front steps of Building 17, which faced his Building 9.  On the front steps, four musicians: one guitarist, one accordion player, and two playing bongos and congas had already gathered.
