Mr Eliot looked down at his feet as he pulled off the blooded  white gloves, and clerks sleeves, the two motionless forms on the canal edge leaked they're last down the landing wall,

"well my lads it seems that two less stops...

Morning light filtered through the windows as Bookworm rose from the dining table, having eaten a light breakfast.

Bookworm hurried up the steps leading into the hospital. On entering, she saw Kasa seating at the desk. The rabbit looked up at the sound of her entrance. “Oh, good evening. It is good to see you again.”

From the Witnesses


Mr. Hargreaves let himself into Quest House with the keys given to him by Professor Rowbottom.  His brief was to take all possessions within the house into storage, ensuring in particular that the few important papers remaining stayed with him for the journey back to England.

The house itself was not to remain, nor the bookshop.  All plans for opening the shop to serve...
