Sliding the pages back into the manila envelope, I returned it to the mailbox and hurried to my truck. I barely beat the downpour.
Had I waited another few minutes, I would have been drenched, and despite having my windshield wipers on high, I could barely see through the glass. I drove home, made myself a late lunch, and stared out the window, continuing to think about the story. When I finally made it back, the other letters, the recipe, and the journal were there, but the manila envelope was gone. I wondered what had become of it.
Mainly, I wondered whether the author had had second thoughts about revealing the story and had come to retrieve it himself. Since the first part of the story was written decades ago, some of the reference points had long since disappeared.
I managed to track down the location of what used to be the restaurant—it was now a chic seafood bistro with white tablecloths—and used that as a starting point for my exploratory excursions, in order to get a sense of the area.
After that, following the trail of building permits, I visited one island after the next, and on one of my many walks up and down the beach, I eventually came across the sound of hammering and a power drill—not uncommon for salted and weather-beaten homes along the coast. When I saw an older man working on a ramp that led from the top of the dune to the beach, I felt a sudden jolt.
I remembered the drawings, and even from a distance suspected that I had found one of the characters in the story.
No Lit Chick’s Connection
Walking over, I introduced myself. Up close, I became even more certain it was him. Doing the math, I figured him to be in his late sixties, which was the right age. In response, he deliberately turned his gaze toward the ocean, saying nothing for perhaps a minute. When he turned to face me again, he said that he would answer my questions the following afternoon, but only if I was willing to lend him a hand on his construction project.
I showed up with a tool belt early the following morning, but the tools proved unnecessary.
Instead, he had me haul plywood, two-by-fours and pressure treated lumber from the front of the house to the back, up over the sandy dune, and onto the beach. The pile of lumber was enormous, and the sand made every load seem twice as heavy.
He spent the day drilling and nailing and working beneath a searing early summer sun, more interested in the quality of his work than my presence. Filling a pair of plastic cups from a thermos he kept inside, he handed me a cup of iced tea. He listened in silence, his expression unreadable. For some reason, I felt anxious, almost desperate to persuade him.
After an uncomfortable silence in which he seemed to be weighing my proposition, he finally spoke: he was willing to discuss the idea further, and perhaps even agree to my request, but only on the condition that he be the first to read the story. I hedged. Writing a book takes months, even years, of effort—but he held firm. In the end, I agreed. Truth be told, I understood his reasoning. If our positions had been reversed, I would have asked the same of him.
We went to the cottage then. I asked questions and received answers. I was provided again with a copy of the story, and I was shown the original drawings and letters that enlivened the past even more. The conversation rolled on.
