Suddenly his reverie is smashed by two policemen, one of whom shouts, "Hold it right there." Alfred  explains that he is in training, managed by Mr. Donatelli. The cops have heard of Donatelli and ease  off. The mood, however, is broken. The good feeling is gone. When Alfred returns home, Aunt Pearl  also wonders why he was out at such an hour, but Alfred tells her that he couldn't sleep and went for  a walk. At work, Lou Epstein, the oldest of the brothers, speaks privately with Alfred about the burglary. He  says that Alfred is "a good boy," but the employers seem distant and distrustful. Jake, the middle  brother, takes the deposit to the bank; this had been Alfred's job. Surprisingly, James, his face  swollen and grim, appears at the window as Alfred is arranging fruit in the front window. He doesn't  respond to Alfred's greeting. Alfred is despondent and fantasizes about robbing the store himself.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
