Summary

Larry, the narrator, is a young man who has been locked out of his father’s house for being out too late. He returns to the city and speaks to a watchman, who tells the boy that he hit his father with a fire-poker when a similar situation occurred to him. The watchman is about to send him away, but a woman arrives and sees him. Though the watchman is upset, she insists that he make tea for all three of them. She asks Larry to come home with her. They begin to leave, but are caught by a constable, who threatens to lock Larry up, but instead sends Molly on her way home and makes Larry stay with the watchman, Squinty. Finally, Larry goes home, unafraid of his father and fed up with the current situation.
