Guillaume began his entrance into his home which by all
appearances, was not beginning to take on the appearance of a strangers anymore,
even allowing for all the travel he contractually felt was necessary. It was now the stuff
of myths the amount of flying plus sailing that were part of his weekly regimen. His
contract was written so that he was able to have 14 nights on as well as then having 10
nights off to follow. It was starting to take a toll on his psyche but he was sure to make
allowances each morning when using his regular tai chi movements.
Guillaume put his sticks on the floor
of his lounge room then cast a cautious eye southeast at the house. The light in the loft
was still on even though it was now only beginning to approach twilight. He felt certain
that once more, that that light was never in the off position. What was happening in the
loft he was only able to guess but he now felt astute enough to approach the house to
knock once more. He knew that the usual clamorous greeting will be there waiting
but to only look upstairs, if only for a moment will be more than enough to fill a
chapter. A couple of amusing pages at least !
As he went past his bags with the now
famous fish logo covering the majority of the front pockets, he cast his eyes into the
last rays of the azure sun. He became curious
as to what may occur if only he was able to voice his opinion without having it written up
in all the papers as out of context. Being here at the Estate, he knew, gave him a sense
of calming, closure almost. No-one here knew who he was, where he went or what his
vocation was which was fine to him.
He saw on his timetable that it was
another gathering of Caius College wannabes tonight near the city. He began to assemble
himself, reaching for the now familiar navy blue tie along with the charcoal slacks which
were now customary to be seen in at these things. As the evening began to get closer, he
knew that this night will probably seem like all the others that were before him. Just so
long as he was back here tonight by 12:00 a.m., all the time that he knew he may require
so that he was able to set up all the receiving apparatus as well as the transmitting gear
for the next shift was his.
