Cecily was rarely home until late. Most mornings Mel went to the library, and most days the teenage boy she’d seen peering from the library window could be found reclining on a couch or chair somewhere. Mel came up with a little game of predicting what section she might see him in. He was almost always asleep, and so she gave him the nickname Sleeping Beauty. Once she’d found him, she made a point of not walking directly past him. Instead, Mel walked up and down the long aisles as though she was selecting books to take home.
She didn’t ask questions. Mel liked that. Most days, Mel ate and left before everyone else had returned to the street. If Cecily wasn’t outside the soup kitchen when Mel came out, which happened more often than not, Mel walked back to the Pinto, but not before stopping to sing on the corner of Olive and Fifth. There she could be assured of making at least five dollars, sometimes fifteen, in an hour. And she’d noticed that some people were becoming regulars – they didn’t just give her money; often they would compliment her singing or ask how her day was going.
