After dark Lyle, Joyce and Pearlie went down to the riverside to look
at the floodlights on the falls. Pearlie kept hanging around them,
like a lost dog. Lyle didn't have the heart to ask Pearlie to go back
to Toronto and Pearlie wasn't about to go anywhere. And worse,
he and Joyce fought every few minutes. Joyce considered Pearlie to
be nothing more than a gormless high-school pest.
Pearlie was fighting for his company.
