Another fairly good story. These two must have been saved up for a while…

Bobby’s hand was half fist when he knocked the emery board from her fingers. She neither looked at him nor picked up the emery board from the carpet. She just got up and went back to her dressing table to resume brushing her hair, her thick red hair.

Go See Eddie was submitted to Esquire and rejected before being accepted for December 1940 publication in The Kansas Review.
