Visit to a Small Town
Steven had been on the road for several days, when he came across the small New England town. Most of the people who lived there had been born there. Like Mrs. Eleanor Ross, who manages the five and dime, shy young Ellie Ryerson who works in the store after school, and Tom McCabe, the town's police chief. Stephen and Ellie are instantly attracted to one another. That evening, while she is waiting to go out with Steven, McCabe drags her inside his patrol car, ignoring her protests, and drives away. Steven pursues them on foot up the mountain but is impeded at every step by the town and townspeople. Middle-aged women clutch at him for sex, dogs attack him, cruising teen-agers throw beer cans. McCabe too has been busy, killing first a burglar, the burglar's dog, and then one of his own deputies. He is in the process of burying Ellie alive in the town cemetery when he and Steven finally come face to face.
