Part III

Gus Dietrich works as a passenger service agent at LaGuardia Airport.  Gus is coming off a coffee break when he crashes into a man in a black coat, charcoal gray dress pants and black oxford shoes.  Gus says, “Excuse me,” into the blue eyes of Colin Belvedere.  Gus quickly tells himself don’t scream, but in his thoughts he has screamed and urinated on himself.  Gus however has two hours left on his shift and is glad that the thought and feelings of both events aren’t real.  Gus Dietrich’s thoughts do bring a reaction, with the verbiage.

“I wasn’t part of it.  I had nothing to do with it.  I only found out recently what he’d done.  I can’t go to the police he’s my first cousin.  I can’t I’d be a disgrace to the family.  What can I do? Nothing.  Nothing at all.”

Colin with a faint smile quietly states, “Talk to him.  Tell him what you saw.  Things aren’t right, friends in Canada have not been well.  It may be contagious.  Tell him.”

Colin then nods and walks away.  He is carrying a small gray bag this time as he exits the terminal.
