The quiet of the night was interrupted by shrieks and clashing sounds from the square, though from my bedroom in the upper story, peace enveloped the household still. I rolled over and went back to sleep.
I learned later that Elijah had sallied out and confronted the “reprobates.” I guess that was the clashing or crashing noises I heard.
His bravery impressed Sy’s parents. So they did not stop us when we went out with the morning crowd.
Our plan for the day was simple – get to know the area well enough so as to not get lost.
We came across a worksite. And next to that an administration building, newly opened.
Marked our list and returned home before night.
