Umber (21.6 — Leroy’s Story)

One rainy Thursday I pulled up to the curb in my convertible to let Florence out, then parked the car about a block away. When I got back to St. Agnes’, I saw the brown-haired girl struggling to get her baby buggy up the steps. It was nearly as big as she was. I went over to help her. She thanked me shyly, and when I heard her voice, I was mesmerized.
