You’re late! It’s almost midnight, and the rest of my servants are sleeping. I’ve been waiting for you.
Come, come. Tell me all about the mansion your agency has for sale. I don’t mind staying up longer – I have all day to sleep.
I want to hear all about this house. I have lots and lots of money to spend, from a seemingly invisible source of income, and I want to use it to buy a house far away from all these gossipy townsfolk. No, no – nothing is wrong. It’s just time to move out of the mountains and into the city, if you know what I mean.
Is this the house? It’s absolutely…stunning. Running water!? What a wonderful amenity. I’ll take it.
Is this your sister? Your wife! I see. Lovely throat, she has.
You mean to tell me that you’ll be living just across the street? Like, right across the street? Like, we could probably see into each other’s windows?
