Example text

What time did Troy and Billy say they’d be back? I dont reckon they said. How come you not to go with em? I just thought I’d stick around here. Mac carried the cups to the sink. Did they ask you to go? Yessir. I dont need to go everwhere they go. He slid the cover shut on the box and folded the board and rose. Is Troy fixin to go down there and go to work for his brother? I dont know sir. He crossed the room and put the chess set back in the press and closed the door and got his hat. You dont know or you aint sayin?

You’re makin the room untidy. That’s all right. I aint stayin. Better set down, said John Grady. He needs all his powers of concentration. You got that right, said Mac. JC sat down. Mac studied the board. JC glanced at the pile of white chesspieces at John Grady’s elbow. Son, you better cut the old man some slack. You might could be replaced with somebody that cowboys better and plays chess worse. Mac reached and moved his remaining bishop. John Grady moved his knight. Mac took up his cigar and sat puffing quietly.

Go on and get her. That’s all right. Hell, go on. Here he comes. Billy stepped up to the bar and adjusted his hat. You want me to go get her? said Troy. I can get her if I want her. Otra vez, said Billy. He turned and looked across the room. Go on, said Troy. Hell, we’ll wait on you. That little girl the one you’re lookin at? I bet she aint fifteen. I bet she aint either, said Troy. Get that one I had. She’s five gaited or I never rode. The barman poured their whiskies. She’ll be back over there directly.
