Hannah was devastated, but she pulled herself together. She phoned Denby’s sister and asked her to pass along the bad news to their friends and relatives. She arranged to have Denby’s body flown back to Columbus. She canceled her flight home and caught an earlier one. She even tore the report describing the accident out of a newspaper and put it into her purse.
Home in Columbus, Hannah put the newspaper clipping in her photo album, the same album in which she put the photographs of Denby and the Peruvian peasants and the llamas. The news report read:
Crazed Driver Kills 37 Gringoes, Four Goats and Seven Chickens In Bus Crash
Lima, Peru (Reuters). Gustavo Rebozo made the last wrong turn of his Andes Shuttle Service last Monday as he sped along Cliffside Drive with a pint of Old Crow rotgut whiskey in one hand and a cell phone in the other. Witnesses saw the bus fishtailing wildly and passengers hanging out the windows screaming American vulgarities, no doubt distracting Rebozo from his phone call.
In business news, stock in Denby China International plunged drastically in late trading.
