Bobby Parker drowned today. It spread over town by that evening. They'd found him in the bottom of the community pool with his foot wedged into the drain.
Bobby missed supper. His mother wasn't too worried. He often left home on his bicycle in the morning and returned only for lunch and again at supper time or later. A lot of us kids did that. His mother worried only when it grew dark. She called around to his friends' homes, asking if he were there.
