Chapter 9, Section 15

  • Billy lies in bed trying to convince Rumfoord that he's telling the truth.
  • He waits for a long time to say that he was at Dresden, just to prove to Rumfoord that he is not echoing.
  • Rumfoord still doesn't believe him.
  • Billy tells him that they don't have to talk about it, but he just wants Rumfoord to know that he was there.
