down the embankment with a Paratroops over the side We went to the bottom in big jumps and leaped over the brackish trickle of water oozing listlessly out of the culvert which poked out of the cinders Beyond this small boggy area was the sandy, trash littered verge of the dump There was a six foot security fence surrounding it Every twenty feet weather faded signs were posted They said CASTLE ROCK DUMP HOURS 4 8 P.M CLOSED MONDAYS TRESPASSING STRICTLY FORBIDDEN We climbed to the top of the fence, swung over, and jumped down Teddy and Vern led the way toward the well, which you tapped with an old fashioned pumpthe kind from which you had to call the water with elbow grease There was a Crisco can filled with water next to the pump handle, and the great sin was to forget to leave it filled for the next guy to come along The iron handle stuck off at an angle, looking a one winged bird that was trying to fly It had once been green, but almost all of the paint had been rubbed off by the thousands of hands that had worked that handle since 1940 The dump is one of my strongest memories of Castle Rock It always reminds me of the surrealist painters when I think of itthose fellows who were always painting pictures of clockfaces lying limply in the crotches of trees or Victorian living rooms standing in the middle of the Sahara or steam engines coming out of fireplaces To my childs eye, nothing in the Castle Rock Dump looked as if it really belonged there We had entered from the back If you came from the front, a wide dirt road came in through the gate, broadened out into a semicircular area that had been bulldozed as flat as a dirt landing strip, and then ended abruptly at the edge of the dumping pit The pump Teddy and Vern were currently standing there and squabbling about who was going to prime it was at the back of this great pit It was maybe eighty feet deep and filled with all the American things that get empty, wear out, or just dont work any There was so much stuff that my eyes hurt just looking at itor maybe it was your brain that actually hurt, because it could never quite decide what your eye should stop on Then your eye would stop, or be stopped, by something that seemed as out of place as those limp clockfaces or the living room in the desert A brass bedstead leaning drunkenly in the sun A little girls dolly looking amazedly between her thighs as she gave birth to stuffing An overturned Studebaker automobile with its chrome bullet nose glittering in the sun like some Buck Rogers missile One of those giant water bottles they have in office buildings, transformed by the summer sun into a hot, blazing sapphire There was plenty of wildlife there, too, although it wasnt the kind you see in the Walt Disney nature films or at those tame zoos where you can pet the animals Plump rats, wood chucks grown sleek and lumbering on such rich chow as rotting hamburger and maggoty vegetables, seagulls by the thousands, and stalking among the gulls like thoughtful, introspective ministers, an occasional huge crow It was also the place where the towns stray dogs came for a meal when they couldnt find any trashcans to knock over or any deer to run They were a miserable, ugly tempered, mongrel lot slat sided and grinning bitterly, they would attack each other over a flyblown piece of bologna or a pile of chicken guts fuming in the sun But these dogs never attacked Milo Pressman, the dump keeper, because Milo was never without Chopper at his heel Chopper wasat least until Joe Cambers dog Cujo went rabid twenty years laterthe most feared and least seen dog in Castle Rock He was the meanest dog for forty miles around or so we heard , and ugly enough to stop a striking clock The kids whispered legends about Choppers meanness Some said he was half German shepherd, some said he was mostly boxer, and a kid from Castle View with the unfortunate name of Harry Horr claimed that Chopper was a Doberman pinscher whose vocal cords had been surgically removed so you couldnt hear him when he was on the attack There were other kids who claimed Chopper was a maniacal Irish wolfhound and Milo Pressman fed him a special mixture of Gaines Meal and chicken blood These same kids claimed that Milo didnt dare take Chopper out of his shack unless the dog was hooded like a hunting falcon The most common story was that Pressman had trained Chopper not just to sic but to sic specific parts of the human anatomy Thus an unfortunate kid who had illegally scaled the dump fence to pick up illicit treasures might hear Milo Pressman cry Chopper Sic Hand And Chopper would grab that hand and hold on, ripping skin and tendons, powdering bones between his slavering jaws, until Milo told him to quit It was rud that Chopper could take an ear, an eye, a foot, or a leg and that a second offender who was surprised by Milo and the ever loyal Chopper would hear the dread cry Chopper Sic Balls And that kid would be a soprano for the rest of his life Milo himself was commonly seen and thus commonly regarded He was just a half bright working joe who supplemented his small town salary by fixing things people threw away and selling them around town There was no sign of either Milo or Chopper today Chris and I watched Vern prime the pump while Teddy worked the handle frantically At last he was rewarded with a flood of clear water A moment later both of them had their heads under the trough, Teddy still pumping away a mile a minute Teddys crazy, I said softly Oh yeah, Chris said matter of factly He wont live to be twice the age he is now, I bet His dad burnin his ears like that Thats what did it Hes crazy to dodge trucks the way he does He cant see worth a shit, glasses or no glasses You remember that time in the tree Yeah The year before, Teddy and Chris had been climbing the big pine tree behind my house They were almost to the top and Chris said they couldnt go any further because all of the branches up there were rotten Teddy got that crazy, stubborn look on his face and said fuck that, he had pine tar all over his hands and he was gonna go up until he could touch the top Nothing Chris said could talk him out of it So up he went, and he actually made ithe only weighed seventy five pounds or so, remember He stood there, clutching the top of the pine in one tar gummy hand, shouting that he was king of the world or some stupid thing like that, and then there was a sickening, rotted crack as the branch he was standing on gave way and he plummeted What happened next was one of those things that make you sure there must be a God Chris reached out, purely on reflex, and what he caught was a fistful of Teddy Duchamps hair And although his wrist swelled up fat and he was unable to use his right hand very well for almost two weeks, Chris held him until Teddy, screaming and cursing, got his foot on a live branch thick enough to support his weight Except for Chriss blind grab, he would have turned and crashed and smashed all the way to the foot of the tree, a hundred and twenty feet below When they got down, Chris was gray faced and almost puking with the fear reaction And Teddy wanted to fight him for pulling his hair They would have gone at it, too, if I hadnt been there to make peace I dream about that every now and then, Chris said, and looked at me with strangely defenseless eyes Except in this dream I have, I always miss him I just get a couple of hairs and Teddy screams and down he goes Weird, huh Weird, I agreed, and for just one moment we looked in each others eyes and saw some of the true things that made us friends Then we looked away again and watched Teddy and Vern throwing water at each other, screaming and laughing and calling each other pussies Yeah, but you didnt miss him, I said Chris Chambers never misses, am I right Not even when the ladies leave the seat down, he said He winked at me, formed an O with his thumb and forefinger, and spat a neat white bullet through it Eat me raw, Chambers, I said Through a Flavor Straw, he said, and we grinned at each other Vern yelled Come on and get your water before it runs back down the pipe Race you, Chris said In this heat Youre off your gourd Come on, he said, still grinning On my go Okay Go We raced, our sneakers digging up the hard, sunbaked dirt, our torsos leaning out ahead of our flying bluejeaned legs, our fists doubled It was a dead heat, with both Vern on Chriss side and Teddy on mine holding up their middle fingers at the same moment We collapsed laughing in the still, smoky odor of the place, and Chris tossed Vern his canteen When it was full, Chris and I went to the pump and first Chris pumped for me and then I pumped for him, the shocking cold water sluicing off the soot and the heat all in a flash, sending our suddenly freezing scalps four months ahead into January Then I re filled the lard can and we all walked over to sit down in the shade of the dumps only tree, a stunted ash forty feet from Milo Pressmans tarpaper shack The tree was hunched slightly to the west, as if what it really wanted to do was pick up its roots the way an old lady would pick up her skirts and just get the hell out of the dump The most Chris said, laughing, tossing his tangled hair back from his brow A blast, I said, nodding, still laughing myself This is really a good time, Vern said simply, and he didnt just mean being off limits inside the dump, or fudging our folks, or going on a hike up the railroad tracks into Harlow he meant those things but it seems to me now that there was , and that we all knew it Everything was there and around us We knew exactly who we were and exactly where we were going It was grand We sat under the tree for awhile, shooting the shit like we always didwho had the best ballteam still the Yankees with Mantle and Maris, of course , what was the best car 55 Thunderbird, with Teddy holding out stubbornly for the 58 Corvette , who was the toughest guy in Castle Rock who wasnt in our gang we all agreed it was Jamie Gallant, who gave Mrs Ewing the finger and then sauntered out of her class with his hands in his pockets while she shouted at him , the best TV show either The Untouchables or Peter Gunnboth Robert Stack as Eliot Ness and Craig Stevens as Gunn were cool , all that stuff It was Teddy who first noticed that the shade of the ash tree was getting longer and asked me what time it was I looked at my watch and was surprised to see it was quarter after two Hey man, Vern said Somebodys got to go for provisions Dump opens at four I dont want to still be here when Milo and Chopper make the scene Even Teddy agreed He wasnt afraid of Milo, who had a pot belly and was at least forty, but every kid in Castle Rock squeezed his balls between his legs when Choppers name was mentioned Okay, I said Odd man goes Thats you, Gordie, Chris said, smiling Odd as a cod Sos your mother, I said, and gave them each a coin Flip Four coins glittered up into the sun Four hands snatched them from the air Four flat smacks on four grimy wrists We uncovered Two heads and two tails We flipped again and this time all four of us had tails Oh Jesus, thats a goocher, Vern said, not telling us anything we didnt know Four heads, or a moon, was supposed to be extraordinarily good luck Four tails was a goocher, and that meant very bad luck Fuck that shit, Chris said It doesnt mean anything Go again No, man, Vern said earnestly A goocher, thats really bad You remember when Clint Bracken and those guys got wiped out on Sirois Hill in Durham Billy tole me they was flippin for beers and they came up a goocher just before they got into the car And bang they all get fuckin totalled I dont like that Sincerely Nobody believes that crap about moons and goochers, Teddy said impatiently Its baby stuff, Vern You gonna flip or not Vern flipped, but with obvious reluctance This time he, Chris, and Teddy all had tails I was showing Thomas Jefferson on a nickel And I was suddenly scared It was as if a shadow had crossed some inner sun They still had a goocher, the three of them, as if dumb fate had pointed at them a second time Abruptly I thought of Chris saying I just get a couple of hairs and Teddy screams and down he goes Weird, huh Three tails, one head Then Teddy was laughing his crazy, cackling laugh and pointing at me and the feeling was gone I heard that only fairies laugh like that, I said, and gave him the finger Eeee eeee eeee, Gordie, Teddy laughed Go get the provisions, you fuckin morphadite I wasnt really sorry to be going I was rested up and didnt mind going down the road to the Florida Market Dont call me any of your mothers pet names, I said to Teddy Eeee eee eeee, what a fuckin wet you are, Lachance Go on, Gordie, Chris said Well wait over by the tracks You guys better not go without me, I said Vern laughed Goin without youd be like goin with Slitz instead of Budweisers, Gordie Ah, shut up They chanted together I dont shut up, I grow up And when I look at you I throw up Then your mother goes around the corner and licks it up, I said, and hauled ass out of there, giving them the finger over my shoulder as I went I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve Jesus, did youSet in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine 1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen Kings timeless
