The absence of necessity (ii)


Best half a dollar I ever spent today. Yea, today... I'm wondering what it was that got me through.  The phone hasn't rung for a long time now.  When is she going to call?  Forget it.  Who am I fooling? It's been a week.  No, it's longer than that.  I could use another drink.

Just before Russell made his way back to the Cecil Hotel, he double checked his note to make sure he'd crossed his t's and dotted his i's. It was then he'd notice there were no t's or i's in "goodbye cruel world." He replaced the note with a ticket and returned to the Cecil. To this day he sits near the dusty black dial phone and awaits her call.
