Rabbit, Run Chapter 3 Summary
They walk together on the street, kind of arguing.
Rabbit thinks she isn’t keen on him, same as the Texas prostitute.
Rabbit says: “Come on now, be a pleasant cunt,” showing he will not be impeded by her toughness. They walk now, each with an arm around the other’s waist.
Ruth says he talked about himself too much at dinner.
He says he was a great athlete, though is nothing now.
She says she was a great cook, but that now she just eats out to find men.
They get to her building. They go to her apartment, on the second floor.
They go in and he starts kissing her and holds her roughly. She tells him to leave.
He says he just wanted to “hug” her. She says it was more like “kill” than hug.
She’s afraid he will prematurely ejaculate if they have sex. He promises not to.
She wants to take her clothes off in the bathroom. He wants to take them off for her.
She wants to put in a diaphragm. He doesn’t like them.
They banter about birth control. He is against it. She for it.
He insinuates he’d like to marry her.
He watches her pee, and flashing back to toilet training Nelson, praises her for a job well done.
He’s undressing her, and when he fumbles she tries to take over.
He says to relax and enjoy – that it’s their “wedding night.” He thinks she wants to hit him. She says men always want to “hurt…or be hurt.”
He tells her she is pretty. She makes mention again of her weight.
He lets her take off her stockings, fearing he will tear them. He continues undressing her.
He starts to get naked, too. Wanting her completely naked, he makes her take off her ring.
She laughs at his boxers – says they make him look like a rabbit.
He washes the makeup off her face with a washcloth.
They are in bed together, he does it like he does with Janice – trying to get her in the mood. He sits on her butt and massages her back.
They make love (it’s not clear if birth control is used) and she comes.
He says she’s pretty. She says she’s forgotten that she could have an orgasm, too.
She wants to go to the bathroom, and he tries to stop her.
He doesn’t like women to wash immediately after sex.
He wants some water. It depresses him to hear her washing.
He’s already snoozing when she comes back with his water.
