That maybe, he was returning it. At that time, Grandmother was definitely living with us so maybe, just maybe... But that thought sometimes brought with it slightly more frightening thoughts and it wasn't just me, but Grandmother who thought them too. Whenever Grandmother saw the Pride she'd ask me, "Hey, hey. The car isn't dead, right?" And whenever Grandmother asked me this I'd tell her that the real problem was that it was still running too well. "Hey, hey. Make sure you take good care of it, okay? Make sure you keep it well fed until your uncle gets back." As she said this, she'd hand me a crumpled 10,000 won bill. I took the money from her and asked, "What about me? You'll give the car allowance but not your own grandson?"Grandmother never replied.
