The refuse collected there cascaded down the mountain to a depth undetermined, creeping, growing, of indescribable variety and richness. One evening late in March the drinkers blinked in a sweep of lights on the curve, watched a glistening black Ford coupe pull up across the road. It was brand new. A few minutes later Marion Sylder came through the door of the inn resplendent in gray gabardines, the trousers pressed to a knife edge, the shirt creased thrice across the back in military fashion, his waist encircled by a strip of leather the width of a whip-end.
The other one was standing next to her then. They looked at each other and the first one said, Thank ye, I reckon we can make it all right. The boy hung back behind them. Across June’s shoulder Sylder could see him looking not at them or at the women either, but at the car. How fer ye goin? June wanted to know. The two exchanged glances again. This time the taller one spoke up. We jest goin down the road a piece, she explained. Tell her let’s all go down the road for a piece, Sylder suggested. What?
I never figured they’d be headed wrong. Way they’re goin, through Sevierville, it’s near thirty mile. Between them in the crevice of the seat nestled a mason jar of whiskey. Sylder heard the skirling tin sound of the lid being unscrewed and he reached out his hand for June to pass the jar. Moths loomed whitely before the windshield, incandesced, dusted the glass with mica. A ballet of gnats rioted in the path of the headlights. He drank and handed the jar back. Under the black hood the motor hummed its throaty combustions.
