Paper Six Language Analysis Chemistry by Tom Drury is about Keith Lyon and Stella Brand both working at a secluded upscale restaurant near Ventura California called the Road House On this night a policeman comes in asking about Mr Geer a seventy-seven year old man that disappeared from the theater next door When the cop asks everyone to help him locate Mr Geer in the woods surrounding the local establishments Keith and Stella volunteer to pair up and search together Keith is a forty-four year old cook who has no other real ambitions and is content with his mundane station in life He is a solitary and mellow man who is not easily discouraged by his failed attempts at romance namely with Stella He has gradually come to care for Stella the resident piano player and singer at the restaurant and tried to date her over the time that they have worked together The conflict arises from the tension of their feelings for each other They have been on two dates previously which ended awkwardly and left Keith a little self-conscious around her because he still wants to impress Stella and win her over He sees Stella as a pretty woman who is a little rough around the edges She is a pessimist consistently focusing on the negative aspect of things and is afraid of dying before doing all the things she wants to do Keith sees all these things but is drawn to her regardless of their incompatible personalities This story is told from a limited omniscient point of view focusing on Keiths thoughts and feelings This is evident from the way Stella is always described with more attention to detail about her than anyone else Also the environment is noted with a general respect for nature giving a feeling of mellow hope that fits Keiths character whereas Stella is more focused on despair The story is set in a small town outside
