Why? Well the last time No,6 has his portrait painted, it turned out that the artist was somewhat eccentric. The protrait turing out to be an abstract of circles within squares.
Hardly the perfect likeness as No.6 said it was. But then he was simply humouring the artist, who I think actually got into the soul of the man. After all didn't No.6 cirlce the square during that aptitude test in the Labour Exchange Managers office on the morning of his arrival in the village?
I'll be seeing you.
