Urban’s got a blanket and he wraps Father in it like he’s a baby. He lifts Father under the arms, and I take ahold of his legs and we start on up to the house with Ruth trailing behind us, crying all soft like. We don’t go hardly any distance at all when Sidney Knickle and Hermie Rafuse appear and I’m right some glad to give up my place at Father’s feet. The ground’s been moving up and down around me and my stomach’s starting to feel bad. There’s a muscle jumping in my leg and next thing I’m stumbling like I’m staving drunk and my feet look real far away. I know what’s coming and I wave to Ruth to keep on going. I haven’t had a spell since last summer and I was starting to think that maybe they were gone for good. The doctor said they might stop as I got older, but it doesn’t look like that time’s come yet. The next thing I know my arms and legs are starting to twitch something fierce, the rocks are rushing up to meet me and the world’s going dark.
