The Tuatara Terrarium
A thin rain dampened my clothes as I walked from the cab to the small veranda, the gig clattered off along the cobbles and I dropped my bags against the stoop. As I reached to rap the knocker I could hear a dog barking across the street. There was a sign on the door and I squinted trying to read it in the dim gaslight. The door opened and I saw a small, dark-haired woman, perhaps in her fifties. She wore a big floral apron which seemed to hold her bulging form together.
