Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

These "two negro children" who approach Joe Christmas near the end of his flight across Yoknapatawpha in Light in August "look at him with white-rolling eyes" when he asks what day it is; when he tells them to "go on," he stares at the spot "where they had stood" as they run away (336). The narrative does not say if they are male, female or one of each.
