Montag works as a "fireman" whose job is to burn books and the buildings they are found in.
Montag is leaving work very late at night, he just finished burning down a house full of books. as he walks home, he contemplates the odd feeling that he has that someone is around the corner at the end of the street he's on.
I feel like someone is around this corner
When he turns the corner he cannot believe his eyes. There stands a pale white girl who seems to be propelled forward by the wind and leaves rather than moving of her own accord. She is described as having a slender and "milk-white" face with a "gentle hunger" and an expression of "pale surprise."
Montag is shocked and speech less. He just stands there not able to think or move. He can't think of anything to say. All he manages to say is "uhhhh".
Finally after a few moments Montag says, "I thought you were dead". Clarisse looks surprised. "Why is that?" , she asks. "My wife Mildred said you were hit by a car by some one named McClellan".
i thought you were dead
Why is that?
Clarisse laughs. "Yes I was hit by a car but I survived" "I won't be seeing you around anymore" Montag said. "why not?" said Clarisse. I'm leaving and going to the city" Montag says. After a few seconds of silence Clarisse says "I better get going, good luck on your trip to the city" Clarisse turns around and starts walking home and Montag turns a corner and walks to Faber's house. As he's walking he thinks to himself such a strange young girl
