While the boys were growing up, both of their parents cared a great deal about Evers and Pascal, although, in a certain sense, neither had any emotional pitch where their sons were concerned—their ages and interest put them, Evers believed, somewhere between middle C and E flat, no more, no less, no variance. They were good at handling the big things, the highs and lows which occurred in their sons’ lives, but they never had a clear view of the shades between the absolutes. For all the years that Evers could recall, the Wheeling family had been more concerned with equilibrium than depth; not such a bad to live, really. Evers loved his parents, and he felt good about the way treated him and his brother.
