We found that bar at last. I didn't have to ask again, for there it was in big red neon letters over the window—Star Bar. There were some iron tables outside with plastic chairs around them. A few people sat listlessly around, looking at a portable television set that someone had brought out of the bar. They were allin thin summer dresses or short?sleeved shirts; even at that late hour it was stifling. Two thin dogs lay under one of the tables with their tonguesout, and some of the women were fanning themselves unenthusiastically(无精打彩的) with magaines.
?“He's not here," I said, after a quick look around. The television was blaringout an advertisement for a detergent(洗衣粉), and the people sitting round had their eyes glued to the picture of a woman proudly showing how white her husband's underwear was after having been washed. They took no notice of us at all.
“Well, what did you expect?" replied Fergus, yawning. “It's only half past nine, and he said he would be here at nine. You ought to know Craig by this time. He'll turn up sometime after ten."
