You hear me? ” I said. ” “Oh, good, because if I were a deaf man, I wouldn’t be able to hear you. ” The horn sounded. ” “Dead man,” he said one more time. ” but he had already spun away. I watched him. He had that confident, slow swagger, shoulders back, arms swaying a tad too much. I was going to yell out something stupid when I felt a hand on my arm. I turned.
