A Glasgow Trilogy by George Friel

Angus was even washing his face and hands every day by this time, and he was strangely better dressed and altogether smarter than he had been. He kept his dark hair tidy with a massage of brilliantine or butter, and he looked a real little gipsy the way one grease-flattened lock drooped over his forehead, nearly touching his brown eyes. The foreign cut and colour of him was especially strong when he smiled, for he had good white teeth, an unusual thing amongst us. Maybe that was why he turned on a smile so often, a bright beam that lit up his tanned face with sunshine. When lesser boys lost the head with an enemy and got tangled in a costly battle, Angus just smiled and by the unrelenting fixity of his smile intimidated his opponent into unconditional surrender. For his friends he had an extra broadness to the beam, but the super one was for the girls. He treated them as if he was a gallant cavalier and they were ladies of the court. Maybe it was his interest in history affected his behaviour. For the climax of his act he had a simple little trick. He would take a girl’s hand and raise it to his lips, bending over with his heels together, an absurd performance that made us think he was going sloppy the first time we saw it. But at the embarrassing moment when his lips smacked it turned out to be the back of his own hand he was kissing. He went on getting a twitter and a giggle for it even after it was familiar to the girls, and through acting the clown like that, a flippant don john, a tenement casanova, he got closer to them than any of his disciples, solemn types obsessed with the obscure implications of his doctrine, just as an unlettered saint is nearer to God than the tormented theologians who try to understand Him.

It was one of those disciples who put the ball on the slates trying to imitate Angus. That was Keechie McGibbon. But he hadn’t the touch. Besides being a two-faced ape, he was a lowbrowed, pigeyed, hamfisted, unwashed nuisance with two left feet, and not in his right mind the blue and gold evening he bundled Grace Christie in a corner of the backcourt across from the midden. The usual game was all good clean fun so long as Angus was boss. He made two innings of it. The boys gave the girls three minutes start to run off and hide and then chased after them through all the closes, dunnies and stairs far and near, though to make the game playable at all we had eventually to set bounds to the territory they could fairly use. When she was captured a girl was hustled back to the den in the backcourt and kept there in charge of a guard known as the boxie till all her pals were captured too. The duty of boxie was of course given to the halt, the lame and the blind, the cissies and jessies.
