It seemed, through this intense time, that business was David’s first love and Carol his second, although she never complained. Things came to a head one night when David and Carol were joining a group of friends at a ball downtown. Carol dressed in her long silk gown, styled her hair and slid into her satin shoes. By seven in the evening she was ready and waiting, looking forward to the night ahead.

The boys saw her as shy and protected. One day David approached her as she sat playing quietly with her building blocks in the corridor outside the Bussaus’ quarters at the front of the building. ’ he asked. ‘A house,’ she replied. David sat down beside her and helped her make a more elaborate house than she could ever have made herself. He was quiet and gentle, not like some of the boys, who were boisterous and frightening. David also fixed her bike, and soon Rocky sought him out after school and followed him if his chores were indoors.
