CHAPTER XVIII Richard, wake up! Richard!   

    [[[Morning. Richard tosses and turns in his sleep with a huge, dopey grin on his face.]]]

    LILLI: Richard, wake up! Richard!

    [[[She comes into his side of the loft and shakes him, trying to pull the quilt off after a moment.]]]

    LILLI: Richard. Richard wake up. Richard I canít sleep with my bed facing the wrong way. Help me move it into a corner.

    RICHARD: (mumbles) Iím not awake.

    LILLI: You ARE awake, címon!

    RICHARD: No Iím not! Stop it, let go, Iím not dressed!

    LILLI: Wrap the quilt around you. Címon!

    [[[Richard tries to keep himself covered as he wraps the quilt around his front, then stands, bent over, and adjusts the quilt.]]]

    LILLI: Richard, whatís wrong, youíre all humped over.

    RICHARD: Give me a minute.

    [[[As he adjusts the blanket, Lilli gets a glimpse of his privates. She gasps. Obviously something is ďwrongĒ with him.]]]

    LILLI: What happened to it?!

    RICHARD: It gets that way all the time now.

    LILLI: Well does it hurt.

    RICHARD: No!

    Lilli: (amused) Well can you walk?

    RICHARD: I can walk just fine. I can make it go away if I want to, too.

    LILLI: How?

    RICHARD: None of your business!

    [[[She starts trying to get a peek under the quilt.]]]

    LILLI: If we start keeping secrets from each other nothingís ever gonna be the same.

    RICHARD: Nothingís the same around here anyway! Nothingís the way it used to be! Címon, letís move your stupid bed.

    [[[Lilli just sits there, shocked with the anger in his voice. Richard runs across the roofís veranda and into Lilliís side of the loft. He moves the pillow to the other side of the bed and pulls the blanket down and smoothes it out. He walks out, shaking his head and rolling his eyes.]]]
