"Come in" Nick Adams opened the door and went into the room.Oly Aderson was lying on the bed with all his cloths on.He did not look at Nick."What is it?" He asked.

 

"I was in George's resturant tonight,"Nick said,"and two fellows came in,tied up me and the cook.And said they were going to kill you.

 

Oly Aderson looked at the wall."There isn't anything I can do about it."He said finally,"Thanks to come to tell me ,though."

 

Nick looked at the big man lying on the bed."Don't you want me to get the policeman"he asked.

 

"That wouldn't do any good."Nick Adams said. "Well,"Nick said,"Maybe you could get out of the town."

 

"NO,"Oly Aderson said,"I am through with all that running away." He looked at the wall."Now, I made a mistake once."He said in a flat voice."Now there is nothing I can do about it .Afer a while I will go out of for a walk.

 

"So long."Nick said. "Goodbye."said Oly Aderson ,"Thanks for coming." He did not look at Nick.

 

Nick walked off the dark street to the corner and went back into the Goerge's resturant.

 

"Don't you see Oly."George asked as soon as he saw Nick. "Yes."Nick said. "well,"George asked,"What is he going to do?" "Nothing."Nick said. "But they will kill him."

 

"I guss they will."Nick sighed.

 

Goerge reached for a towel and began wiping one of the tables.

 

"I wonder what he did."He said."Probably cheated one of the gangsters in Chichago."Nick said.

He stood up.I am going to get out of this town.I can not stand thinking about him waiting in his room and knowing he was going to be killed.It's too awful.

 

"Well,"said Goerge,"You'd better not think about it."

The door of Georges' small restaurant opened and two men came in. They sat down at one of the tables. George walked over to them, "What would you like to eat?” he asked them. "I don't know." one of them said. "I don't what I want to eat." Nike hadn’t another customer watch them from the across the room. He had been talking to George when they came in. "I'll take commonages." The called Aout said. He wear a hat and a black coat that bottom across his chest. His face was small and white and he had thin tap lips. "What are you having, Max?" ale his partner. "Bring me bacon and eggs." Max said without looking George. Max was the same size as Amount. Their faces were different but they were dressed like twins. Both were heavy winter coats but were too small for them. George went in to the kitchen and came out a few minutes later carrying two dishes of food. "Which is yours?" he asked Max. "You're a really smart boy, aren't you?" Max said. He line forward and took the plate with bacon and eggs on it. Both men eat with their gloves on. George watched them eat. Aout looked crossed the room, “What’s the name of that smart boy over there?" he asked George. "Edams." Nike said for himself. "My name is Nakhadens." "O, right. Smart boy. Come to stand here near your friend." Aout pointed to George. "What are you going to do?" George asked. "That's none of your business." Aunt said. "Who is out in the kitchen? The cook?" George nodded "Yes." "Tell him to come out here." Max ordered. George not down the kitchen door. "Sam" he called. "Come in here a minute." The door to the kitchen opened and Sam came out. The two men at the table look at him. Aount got him and pushed Naked and Sam back into the kitchen. The door sharp after them. The man called Max didn't look at George, but looked in the mirror that was on the wall near the table. "Talk to me, smart boy." Max said, "What do you think we are going to do?" George did not say anything. "I'll tell you." Max said. "We are going to kill someone. Do you know a big man named Olly Anderson?" "Yes, George said in low voice. He sometimes comes in here to eat." Max looked at George, "He sometimes comes in here? You mean he comes in here every night at 6 o'clock, don't you?" "Why are you going to killed Olly Anderson?" George asked. "What did he ever do to you?" "He never did anything to us." Max said. "He is not even seeing us. We are going to kill him for a friend, smart boy." "Shut up, Max." Aout shout from the kitchen. "You are talking too much." George looked at the clock near the door. It was 5 minutes to 6. Max pushed George to get attention. "If anybody comes in, tell him that the cook was gone for the day. You understand that, smart boy?" "All right." George said. "But what are you going to do to us afterwards?" "We don't know yet." Max said. During the next hour, two other people came in to the restaurant. Once George went into the kitchen to make a hangover egg sanwiger for a man who wanted to take it with him. When he was in the kitchen George saw Aout with his hat push back on his head. He was sitting on the chair near the door, a small sharp gun rested in his arms. Nake and Sam the cooker were sitting on the floor. Aout had tied them up at the staff of tower in their mouths. George cooked the hammer and eggs. But among the roll of the bread, and put a swige in a brown paper bag. The man paid for his food and left. "This smart boy can do everything." Max said. "He can even cook. You will make a girl a nice way, smart boy." Your friend Olly Anderson isn't going to come in tonight." George said. "It's already a quarter to 7." "We'll give him 10 minutes." Max said. Max watched the mirror and the clock. The hands of the clock marked 7 o'clock and then 5 minutes pass 7. "Come on, Al." Said Man. "We'd better go. He is not come in tonight." Al came out of the kitchen. The small sharp gun made a little bomb on the inside at his tight winter coat. "What about the smart boys?" All asked. "They are alright." Max said. "Goodbye, smart boy.” he said to George. "You're lucky tonight." the two of them went out of the door. George watched them through the window. They pass under the street light cross the street. George went back through the kitchen door and untied Nake and Sam. "They were going to shoot Olly Anderson." George said. "They were going to shoot him when he came in here to eat." "Olly Anderson?" Nake asked. George nodded him. "Listen, you had better go see Olly Anderson." "I'll go see him." Nake said. "Where does he live?" "He lives at Bet Hoshes Hotel." George said. Outside, the street lights were shining through the branches of the tree. Nake walk of the street to Hoshes Hotel. He walked in and saw a woman near the main desk. "Is Olly Anderson here?" he asked.

"No, I made a mistake once." He said in a flat voice, "Now, there is nothing I can do about it. After a while I'll go off for a walk." "So long." Nick said. "Goodbye," said Ole Anderson, "Thanks for coming." He did not look at Nick. Nick walked up the dark street to the corner and went back into George's restaurant. "Did you see Ole?" George asked as soon as he saw Nick. "Yes." Nick said. "Well," George asked, "What is he going to do?" "Nothing.” Nick said. "But they'll kill him." "I guess they will." Nick said. George reached for a towel and began wiping one of the tables. "I wonder what he did." He said. "Probably cheated one of the gangsters in Chicago," Nick said. He stood up, "I'm going to get out of this town. I can't stand thinking about him waiting in his room and knowing he is going to be killed. It's too awful!" "Well," said George. "You'd better not think about it." You have just heard the story "The Killers", written by Ernest Hemingway.
