She slapped his face hard. Just hush up now. She slapped him again, harder this time, and he heard mixed with his own hollow fear a tinny ringing sound. He began to breathe more steadily, and the noise subsided to a moan. She slapped him once more, not so hard now, and turned away. I'm goddam if you just wouldn't drive anybody plumb wild with all of your craziness. She went out. He lay moaning for a while, and then managed to collect himself.

That ain't my way, to go crawling around under a house for some chicken bastard. No sir, baby, I just don't cotton to it. Me, I'm just going to wait right here till you come out. He jabbed the knife into one of the log supports and let it remain, near at hand.
