Ordinary Summary

In exchange for room and board, Edgar does work around Henry's place. Henry needs the shed cleared out, which is full of things his late wife had saved. Henry was engaged to be remarried, but his fiancee has left him, saying he is too ordinary.

Edgar continues working and eating, and is worried he may again become used to living indoors.

Ordinary Analysis

He is no longer running, though he desires to move on. The physical injuries -hunger and bloody gashes -are being taken care of. Yet, injustice still lingers in the back of Edgar's mind.
