"Let me go check out this here bed and breakfast I see."
" I was wondering about a room."
" It's all ready for you, my dear."
There's nothing else here...I thought she said this is a bed and breakfast
"Hang your coat up in here, why don't ya sweet boy."
Billy has just arrived in town and is now on his way to find a place to stay. He sees a notice that says, "BED AND BREAKFAST" that has caught his eye.
Christopher Mulholland Gregory W. Temple
After reaching the home, Billy is welcomed in by the landlady only 0.5 seconds of knocking on the door. It seems weird but Billy goes inside anyways and decides to stay.
"It's most terribly clever the way it's been done. It doesn't look in the least bit dead. Who did it?"
The landlady advises Billy to hang his coat up. Billy feels that it's strange that no other coats, umbrellas, or walking sticks are there, being that this is suppose to be a bed & breakfast.
"Excuse my asking, but haven't there been any other guests here except them in the last two or three years?"
The landlady tells Billy to sign the Guest Book after he unpacks. Just as Billy is about to sign, he realizes that there's only been two guest names in the last three years. He then realizes that he notices the names in the guestbook. He tries to ask about it but the landlady tries to avoid the questions.
Billy takes tea from the landlady that she offers him. He then brings up how he didn't notice that the animals were not alive. The landlady explains how she stuffs the animals after they pass away.
As they were discussing Christopher and Gregory, the landlady says that they're still in the house on the second floor, which confuses Billy. The tea also starts to smell funny and Billy says that he doesn't want anymore. Billy asks if there's been anyone else there in the past three years, and she says, no only him.
