    Richard Wright

    1908-1960

     Dave struck out across the fields, looking homeward through paling light. What's the use of talking wid

    em niggers in the field? Anyhow, his mother was putting supper on the table. Them niggers can’t understand

    anything. One of these days he was going to get a gun and practice shooting, then they couldn’t talk to him as

    though he were a little boy. He slowed, looking at the ground. Shucks, Ah ain scared them even ef they are

    bigger me! Aw, Ah know what Ahma do. Ahm going by old Joe’s stop n git that Sears Roebuck catalog n look at

    the guns. Mebbe Ma will lemme buy one when she gits mah pay from old man Hawkins. Ahmad begs her t

    give me some money. Ahm old enough to have a gun. Ahm seventeen. Almost a man. He strode, feeling his long

    loose-jointed limbs. Shucks, a man oughta hava little gun after he did work hard all day.

     He came in sight of Joe’s store. A yellow lantern glowed on the front porch. He mounted steps and

    went through the screen door, hearing it bang behind him. There was a strong smell of coal oil and mackerel

    fish. He felt very confident until he saw fat Joe walk in through the rear door, then his courage began to ooze.

     “Howdy, Dave! Whatcha want?”

     “How yuh, Mistah Joe? Aw, Ah do wanna buy anything. Ah jus wanted t see ef yuh lemme look at that

    catalog while.”

     “Sure! You wanna see it here?”

     “Nawsuh. Ah, want t take it home wid me. Ah’ll bring it back tomorrow when Ah come in from the

    files.”

     “You planning on buying something?”

     “Yessuh.”

     “Your ma letting you have your own money now?”

     “Shucks. Mistah Joe, Ahm Gittin t be a man like anybody else!”

     Joe laughed and wiped his greasy white face with a red bandanna.

     “What you planning on buying?”

     Dave looked at the floor, scratched his head, scratched his thigh, and smiled. Then he looked up shyly.

     “I'll tell yuh, Mistah Joe, ef yuh promise yuh won’t tell.”

     “I promise.”

     “Waal, Ahma buy a gun.”

     “A gun? What you want with a gun?”

     “Ah wanna keep it.”

     “You ain’t nothing but a boy. You don’t need a gun.”

     “Aw, lemme have the catalog, Mistah Joe. Ah, ’ll bring it back.”

     Joe walked through the rear door. Dave was elated. He looked around at barrels of sugar and flour. He

    heard Joe coming back. He craned his neck to see if he was bringing the book. Yeah, he’s got it. Gawddog,

    he’s got it!

     “Here, but be sure you bring it back. It’s the only one I got.”

     “Sho, Mistah Joe.”

     “Say, if you wanna buy a gun, why don’t you buy one from me? I gotta gun to sell.”

     “Will it shoot?”

     “Sure it’ll shoot.”

     “What kind is it?”

     “Oh, it’s kinda old … a left-hand Wheeler. A pistol. A big one.”

     “Is it got bullets in it?”

     “It’s loaded.”

     “Kin Ah see it?”

     “Where’s your money?”

     “What yuh want for it?”
