24. Con-pleted

We’ve been in the bedroom, and boy what a bedroom that bedroom was.

Join us this week as we stand outside the bedroom once again, looking back at that closed door, remembering the endless columns and beguiling carpet.

But as the memory of that extraordinary room teases our senses, we remember something else. Something stranger. Something unsettling.

What exactly were Vassily and Katishe doing as they stumbled across that carpet to the Count’s bed? Was there something in their hands as they flashed through the columns to the door? And when they returned – was that paper in their teeth?

A shiver runs down your spine, something strange is going on, something even stranger than the strange lady, and she really is quite strange.
