Rabbit, Run Chapter 10 Summary
Meanwhile, around 8:00 p.m., Mrs. Springer calls Lucy Eccles looking for Jack.
Lucy then calls around everywhere for him.
Joyce hears all the dialing and comes down twice and is sent back to bed.
When Joyce doesn’t come back down, Lucy feels bad, like she banished the only person in her corner. She doesn’t like being a minister’s wife just then, after 10 p.m.
She is embarrassed. She remembers that she was drawn to Jack because he was happy and fun. Other people get all his fun now.
“She hates” all those religious people, and wishes for communism to come and sweep religion away.
She thinks things might be better if religion had vanished “a hundred years ago.”
The she thinks maybe “our weakness needs” religion. Jack comes home just before eleven.
He’d been at the drugstore all that time, having fun talking to kids about sex and Jesus.
He can see she is past mad.
She gives him the message from the Springers.
He doesn’t stop to console her but runs, excited that the moment he’s been waiting for has come, and makes a phone call.
He prays to God he’ll get an answer, but he isn’t happy with the prayer because he can’t make phones and God seem connected.
Yay. An answer. It’s a man. He thinks it isn’t Rabbit, so he asks for him.
After Eccles identifies himself, Rabbit says: “Hi.”
Rabbit was sleeping, or, er, something.
Eccles tells him Janice is in labor and feels like all of his work as a minister is being judged by whether Rabbit goes to her or not. He says he will go.
Rabbit declines a ride and says he will walk. Eccles expresses his pride for Rabbit.
