The Innocents' Crusade

Keith  Reddin

In an increasingly bizarre (and funny) series of college admissions interviews, Bill, a bright but unfocused young man, canít seem to convince anyone heís more than just a wishful thinker with average test scores. Even worse, Billís parents have decided to make a family road trip out of their sonís college search and are right there every night when he returns to the motel, dejected from the dayís failures. It would be bad enough if Bill decided to give up his dreams of a higher education, but instead each rejection inspires him with a new kind of optimism. Taking a cue from an article his mother gives him about a medieval crusade of children (all of whom either starved or drowned on the way to the holy land), Bill takes it into his head that what his generation lacks is a mission and decides to start his own crusade, albeit one with few definable goals. Billís father, a borderline alcoholic, canít fathom it. Instead of offering Bill his support, he waits and watches for an opportunity to discourage his son and force him into the resigned, work-a-day life that heís had to lead since he was Billís age. As the "crusade" proceeds from town to town and shopping mall to shopping mall, Bill accrues an increasingly outrageous entourage, not the least interesting of whom is Laura, a runaway heiress, with whom Bill will fall in love.
