The Property of Lee Harrison Peeters

Chapter Twenty One: Mary Shay

Stepping out of his room, the stranger is met by a young woman. She has just stepped out of the room opposite his. The stranger smiles and nods his head.

The stranger: “’evenin’, mam.”

Young woman: “Hello, sir.”

The young woman hesitates for a moment before speaking. The stranger smiles to himself. He has seen this act before.

Young woman: “Sir, are you a resident of this lovely town?”

The stranger chuckles: “No, I am not, mam. And it’s not much of a town.”

Young woman looks relieved. “I did not wish to bruise local sensitivities. You see, sir, I am alone.”

The stranger smiles understandingly: “Yes, mam.”

Woman: “I was hoping to find a respectable establishment to eat in.”

The stranger: “Well, mam. I was just on my way to dinner. May I be so bold as to invite you to dine with me?”
