Benton’s work hours increased because of the contract with The
Jacksonite Corporation, but his social life improved.
It was starting from a low baseline, though. He had always been of a
solitary nature, had always concentrated on his work, had never made
friends easily. His older coworkers were married and very settled.
They didn’t socialize with each other and had never shown any
interest in seeing him outside the office. Their families occupied
their time after work.
