If he could find the phone number, he could shave and put some of that oil on his hair to make it lie flat, and he'd drive to her house.
    "Oh, God," moaned one of the women upstairs. As Jim listened, he let his forearm fall across his leg, and the pain of the burn erupted anew. How had he been so stupid as to move his body that way?
    "Oh, oh, oh oh, oh!" one of the women gasped. And the voice broke free: "Sweet Jesus, yes! Oh, yes! Yes!"
    "Shut up!" Jim screamed into the heating duct. "Stop doing that!" His heart raced, and he stood too quickly, and the bandage pulled, and then he banged the leg against the arm of the couch and collapsed. He sat there feeling his whole existence reduced to hot throbbing.
