The Court Date of Eddie’s Father

Back before I fully understood what adults were all about, I suppose I just figured that Eddie simply had no father.
     He lived with his mother in Westfield, near the tracks, with his two brothers in a big old house that they rented. I knew they hadn’t much money, and I thought maybe his father had died; but then he was back, and suddenly everyone was happy again. And what’s more, from wherever he’d been, he had brought back a puppy for the boys.
     I have no idea what Eddie’s mother got, but I’m pretty sure she didn’t like it.
