  Ramble spent the day in his room, smoking, listening to music, and ignoring everyone. He hadn't been to school for weeks. His lawyer had told him that the money would go into a trust until he was either eighteen or twenty-one. Until then, he would get a generous amount of money to spend every month.

  He would form a band called Ramble. He would play guitar and sing and chase girls.

  Two floors up Tira, his mother, spent the day on the phone chatting with friends. Most of them gossiped long enough to ask how much she might get from the estate, but she was afraid to guess. When she divorcedTroyshe got ten million and the house. She was now down to her last two million dollars. Her needs were so great. Her friends had beach houses in theBahamasand she had to stay in luxury hotels. They bought their clothes inNew York; she picked her clothes up locally. Their children went to the best school, out of the way; Ramble was in the basement and wouldn't come out. 

罗伯在自己的房间里待了一整天,不停地抽烟,听音乐,谁也不理。他已经好几周没去过学校了。他的律师告诉他,财产会保存在一个信托基金机构直到他达到一定年龄,不是十八岁就是二十一岁。到那时,他每个月都会得到一笔不菲的金额。

他可以组一个乐队,名字就叫罗伯,他可以弹吉他,唱歌,泡妞。

两层楼之上,他的母亲蒂拉一整天都在和朋友煲电话粥。她们大多都一直在八卦地打探她究竟能得到多少遗产,但她却不敢妄加猜测。她和托伊离婚的时候得到了一千万和这所房子,现在她还剩不到两百万。她的需求太多了。她的朋友在巴哈马群岛拥有沙滩海景房,她却只能在豪华宾馆下榻;她们都去纽约买衣服,她却只能在当地购买;她们的孩子去了最好的学校上学,很让人省心,罗伯却窝在地下室不肯出来。
