I wonder how many times Number 6 played child-minder to those three children, and whose children were they anyway? Did their parents know they were being used in one of Number 2’s little experiments? And like Scheherazade how many stories did Number 6 have to tell, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13 14,15,16....or was this simply a one off? He can certainly spin a good yarn. Go on tell us another, the one about the big bad lone wolf who chucks in his job because for a very long time he craved peace of mind! Why peace of mind, what had he been doing that he needed to escape the job he was doing? Perhaps he developed a sudden conscience, and decided that he no longer liked or had the stomach for the kind of work he was being ordered to do! What went wrong? Because he didn’t seem to be the kind of man who was about to resign his job. He was going to marry the boss’s daughter, Janet Portland. He was set to have lunch with Sir Charles that very day, what’s more it’s indicated that he often had lunch with Sir Charles, having said once how Sir Charles lunches do go on. He seemed happy that morning, well until he saw in the mirror that he wasn’t the man he thought he was!
Be seeing you
