The sun hangs low in the sky, and mist touches the roof-tops over Annakol. It is a damp afternoon, and the street is unusually quiet. Even the calls from the newspaper vendors seem lost amongst the heavy, moist air.

A heavy iron latch snaps open like a shot.

Slowly, the huge oak door creaks open and briefly the heavy, black lacquer on its surface catches the pale sunlight.

William appears at the door.

"Welcome, ..." he starts, but is abruptly cut-off. A crumpled note has appeared in his hand.

Somewhat bemused, William glances up in time to see the heels of some grubby urchin flying down the street.

"Zere iss some vun at zer door, Vilyum?"

A lyrical voice wafts from within, "a visitor perhaps?"

"Erm, a young lad, mistress" William replies from the doorway, "a messenger, I believe."

"Ah, he vants payment?"

"Not as such, milady..." William hazards, shifting his feet.

"Vell beckon him in, I haf a coin and maybe some small treat from zer kitchens... er, somevere I think..."

"Um" William replies, "afraid he ...ah... appears ter have *cough* fled ..."

"Vell ... zat iss ... most unexpected."

The fleeting heals disappear around a corner. As William turns to close the door, he catches the faint sound of children chanting...

"the wicca's gonna get yer... the wicca's gonna freeze yer..."

"Zere wass a note?" enquires the strangely disembodied voice.

"Er yes, mistress," William replies, "an enquiry about our rooms..."

The iron latch snaps home, and the thick, black door resumes its impassive stare.

Ludmilla sits at her desk in her study with an air of satisfaction.

"Vilyum!"

He appears beside her. "Yes, madam?"

"Please take zis note to ze newspaper cancelling my advertisement for ze room. Mr. Villouby hass expressed interest in it so I do not need to run it any longer." She adds another line to the note. "And I am cancelling ze add for ze manservant. Ze agency hass insisted I giff you ze chance."

"Yes madam," William takes the note and turns away, hiding a smile.
