CHICAGO DOWN (an excerpt – Chapter, San Antonio)
“Have you ever been to San Antonio before, Sal?” Leandro asked.
“Nope,” she said.
“I wonder if it’s scary,” Leandro said. “I heard that it’s got a lot of people there…a population of two-hundred-thousand, Sal. Wow…wee!”
“Poppa’s old Poker buddy, Wally, told me they put cool air in one of the new buildings they opened earlier this year,” Salbatora said.
“Cool air?” Leandro thought a moment. “Ohh…air conditioning is what Carlos called it. Air conditioning!” He smiled. “Carlos said it makes the skin feel good on a hot day. But one could get a chill. He said.” His mind wandered off for a moment, missing his uncle. “Carlos knew about everything.”
“He did,” Sal agreed. “I heard that this building’s temperature can go down into the seventies,” Sal said.
“Oh, hell. Like on New Year’s?”
“Yeah. Guess so.”
“I hope we can go see that place,” Leandro said. “I’ve never felt air conditioning.”
