“I always win cause I’m the best,” I say straight at Gretchen who is, as far as I’m
concerned, the only one talking in this ventrilo-quist-dummy routine. Gretchen
smiles, but it’s not a smile, and I’m thinking that girls never really smile at each
other because they don’t know how and don’t want to know how and there’s
probably no one to teach us how, cause grown-up girls don’t know either. Then
they all look at Raymond who has just brought his mule team to a standstill. And
they’re about to see what trouble they can get into through him.
