The last of his earlier panic faded as he imagined himself all dressed up in a tuxedo—smelling like Cleopatra, as he dimly remembered his mother saying once—slurping down an oyster and chasing it with champagne, or maybe a martini. But then a small, brownish-red creature ran practically across Marky's feet on the front steps, chittering angrily. Marky let out a high shriek and jumped back fast, glaring furiously at Anthony as if to say it was his fault. Anthony knew Marky was mad because of the shriek, which had sounded like a little girl's.

" Marky believed, because he was a hardened twenty-four years old to Anthony's wet-behind-the-ears twenty-one, that he could call Anthony a punk. "Got your face stuck up to the freakin’ window," said Marky. " There were no cops around here. But there was also no sense trying to tell Marky that.
