“How is the Rav recovering?” Yigal Erenbaum asked politely. “I understand this was quite a harrowing experience…”
“The Rav? I don’t know; you need to ask him…” The lot stretched out before him, bathed in sunlight, and full of trash, just like he remembered it. Elazar Reiness walked along the edge, no longer afraid to be seen, or to be identified. His battle had come to an end, in failure, but he was biting his lips and moving onward. There would be a hearing in court, but he wasn’t pinning much hope on it.
Still, every so often, his legs carried him here.
“So…how do you feel?” Mr. Erenbaum reworded his question.
“Baruch Hashem. The first few days were rough, but as time goes on, I’m recovering.”
