The Knave by Brother Truck
Summers at the socket factory were brutal, but I had just turned 19 and saved up enough to buy a car. Pulling off the lot, I had only one person in mind for the passenger seat. I drove straight to the Tastee-Freeze.
I tested both seats to make sure they’d recline, and again with my eyes shut, practicing for dim light. At five minutes to close, I unbuttoned my cardigan and ordered a waffle-cone, rocky-road. I said “I got six cylinders and ten ways to love you.” She looked at me, she looked at me once again, and she pulled down the metal shutter and locked up the shop.
Somedays I think I will always be that man, with that cone; waiting, wondering what she meant.
