Summary

This story outlines a day in the life Ysrael, the boy whose face was eaten by a pig when he was an infant. He hangs around an old church and the groundkeeper lets him inside in the heat of the day. Lou, the groundskeeper, also takes him to doctors and looks over him when no one else will show him this kindness.

The doctors are still promising surgery, but only after he loses function of muscles and tendons due to the damage. Ysrael accepts this information with little emotion, while still holding onto hope that someday he will be whole and have an entire face.

Late in the day a group of boys ambush him and threaten to cut his penis off. The ambushes happen often and Ysrael does what he always does: he e runs and nobody can catch him.
