If Once Were Enough – Part Ten

Part X:

There was a certain way Roger looked at me, no matter the time of day, that instantly sent shivers shooting straight down my spine. He never did seem to sleep and always popped out as if he was the resident doorman. He is the landlord of the building, so it is to be assumed that he likes to keep an eye on who is coming and going. To me, it would seem easier to hire someone to do that job, but he probably doesn’t want the expense.

“How are you tonight, Roger?” I said in the kindest voice I could generate. “I don’t fancy that anybody came calling for me while I was out?”

“No, sir,” he muttered, whilst wheeling back towards his own room. “Mrs. Elkston in 2B is rather under the weather, so do be quiet on your way past.”

As I was about to answer back that I would do my best, I heard the resonance of his door closing in the otherwise empty hallway. Roger is certainly not one for small talk, which is probably for the best, since I am not either. In general, I can’t say I have any complaints about him as a landlord. He keeps to himself and seems to do a pretty decent job standing guard.
