Once Upon A Time

   This is a more serious matter, a last ditch attempt to extract the reason behind the Prisoner’s resignation. Degree Absolute is a desperate measure which Number 2 feels he has to take because there is no other way. It has to be either one of them. Number 2 was a good man, is a good man, but if they get Number 6 he will be better, and Number 2 is prepared to put his life on the line for the cause. But there are better causes to die for!
   From the cradle to the grave, all the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts, and the
Butler is there to assist in the deliberations, as well as to make the tea! It is generally thought that when it comes to murder mysteries it’s the Butler who always does it, that is a fallacy. And certainly in this case the Butler is blameless, as it appears Number 2 died of a heart attack, brought on by the strain of the ordeal. But he did bring it on himself, but at least he managed to learn more about the reason behind Number 6’s resignation than any former Number 2, that he resigned for peace, for peace of mind. And in many cases that can be enough reason.


Be seeing you
