were attracted. Just then, one of the girlsthe narrator thinks she looks olderwalks unsteadily toward the boys; the narrator observes that there is something wrong with her: she is either stoned or drunk. He peeks through the underbrush and realizes that the Bad Character is, with the narrators own tire iron and with the help of two blond men, destroying the narrators mothers Bel Air. The boys, in the Rise And Fall Of Davis Levinsky the harsh light of day, are now forced to reckon not only with the folly of their actions, but with the folly of their thoughts and fantasiesthe girls theyd hoped to encounter, seen up close, are wrong and represent the shattering. As the protagonist is running he is imagining cops and bloodhounds trekking through the muddy polluted water looking for him (298). He was there, he says satirically, in the company of two dangerous characters, with his friends Digbywho wears a gold star earring and allows his father to pay his tuition at Cornelland Jeff, who is thinking of quitting school to become a painter/musician/head-shop owner. The narrator is so shaken by his brief and disastrous attempt at being a man of action that he now seems paralyzed, unable even to flee when faced with the prospect of another confrontation. Digby, Jeff and the narrator all head out for the evening in the narrator's mother's Bel Air. He recollects his first mistake was dropping his keys after jumping out of the car; the second was mistaking the blue Chevy to be Tony Lovetts.

As dawn approaches, the protagonist has another epiphany that reveals a changed perspective. The Protagonist stumble upon a corpse he somehow knows to be 3 days dead since hes been at the lake the past 3 nights since the start of summer break. Now he realizes there will be consequences for his bad actions. Though terrified, the narrator brings the tire iron down on the Bad Characters head. After having cruised the strip sixty-seven times and stopped in every bar and club in a twenty-mile radius, the boys have decided that there is nothing to do besides getting drunk on gin up at Greasy Lake. On the way to the lake the boys had hoped to catch a glimpse of a naked girl, just as theyd hoped to encounter some danger. The narrators concept of what constitutes nature is deeply skewed. The protagonist and his friends bolt into the murky swamped woods of Greasy Lake away from the incriminating headlights and the scene of the crime. As the narrator catastrophizes, he remembers brazil Population the relative cushiness of his own life, highlighted in the face of encounters with real danger, death, and destruction.
As the young woman jumps out of the car to find out what is going on, the men begin attacking her in a frenzy of primal rage. Before the protagonist and his friend could do anything to the girl, someone pulled up and their headlights shone on them, each particle of light convicting then, and catching them red handed in the act. As the story winds to a close, we see the main character broken and contrite by his actions and sobered by the reality of what the bad life brings. The baddest thing of all the bad things they did, the narrator says, was going up to Greasy Lake. The narrator is stuck hiding, having crawled back into the realm of inaction after having attempted to be a man of action and finding that he was unable to handle.
