A black car stopped outside the door of a big old weatherboard house. A tall solid built man wearing big black shiny boots stepped onto pea stones then walked towards the house.

Each one of the five wooden steps leading to the front door creaked under the man’s weight. He rapped white knuckles in quick succession on the unpainted door. Footsteps came then suddenly ceased.

The tall man in the big black shiny boots smirked. He pounded on the door again.

Just a minute,” came a high-pitched whispered croak.

He heard a key being inserted into the rusting lock. The doorknob slowly turned. A chain rattled then slid from its home.

Hurry up,” growled the man.
