Quentin remembers that Rosa made him stop the buggy at the gate, where Henry shot Bon, and walk up to the house. He compares the length of the drive now to the time he walked it "as a child" (293). Sure that Clytemnestra is watching them, Rosa says they have to "get inside the house" (293). [SOURCE: Narrator]
