Kyra Hollis receives a surprise visit from Edward Sergeant, the young-adult son of her former lover. He tells her that his mother has died and his father seems adrift; he urges her to come back into his father’s life. Not long after Edward leaves, his father, Tom Sergeant, comes calling. He disparages Kyra’s apartment and her work as a teacher of disadvantaged children; he also tells her he needs and wants her back. They spend an evening of reminiscing, arguing, and finally love-making. Early the next morning, Tom renews his efforts to draw Kyra out of the life she has made for herself, which she greets with a scathing analysis of the betrayals Tom committed that led her to leave him.
