Carol: The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance
Perhaps some words of wisdom? Such as ‘the foolish man seeks happiness in the distance’.
Loke Mun hadn’t been in London for a while. London was a great city, and it happened to be the one in which he had both gotten his certification as a dentist, and nurtured his love for all things espionage-related. He recalled feverish dreams blending the two: extracting a tooth only to discover some unfathomable device in it, handpieces with hidden mikes, on and on.
The Millenium bridge had been only a sparkle in somebody’s eyes in his student days. Now it was a thrumming metal thing thousands of people crossed every day. Loke Mun liked to stand in the middle and feel the vibrations under his feet. To his left, there was St. Paul’s Cathedral; to his right, Tate Modern, that hulk of a building. As he stood, his hands in his pockets, feet slightly apart, he scanned the crowd for faces.
After ten minutes, satisfied, he fluffed up his scarf and left.
Green slatted windows to the sides, ledges very dusty
Hairballs on the floor, scuff marks from the tables and shoes
Pastel striped pink cupboards and sliding whiteboards. Behind the whiteboards are cupboards: Chinese newspapers, waterbottles, files , stationery, ties… Dusty. Clothes of dubious origin. No one wants them.
In the cupboards below the whiteboards: changing areas, boots with polish and all, files, more newspapers.
Teacher’s table: littered with rubber bands and paper clips of all sizes. Newspapers. Things to be given out, but never were, and have long passed their time of usefulness. The visualiser, bolted to the table. The dirty, scratched glass screen protecting the CRT monitor under the table. Dust accumulating just about everywhere, especially in teh corners of the recesses which house the windows.
Sometimes people leave things behind: sweaters slung over the bak of chairs in all colours and materials, CCA shirts and shoes and shorts and assorted clothes; many people leave their mark by leavhing things behind.

Gregory ascended the stone stairs automatically, sifting through the stack of junk mail that had accumulated in two days’ absence. He rounded the corner, feeling the sudden draft which signalled his apartment- right opposite a pair of French windows which never closed. Even after his concussion, he could remember things like this. Maybe it hadn’t been that bad.
Still not looking up, he unlocked the door and went in.
He was so engrossed in his mail, he tripped over the bag at his door and landed on an errant rug- what was it doing there? Gregory threw his mail aside, closed the door and pulled the bag closer.
That was not his bag. Even though he sometimes got the date or his name wrong, this was definitely not his bag. Too expensive. He touched a finger to the handle and sniffed it.
Leather- real leather- and wood. Branded stuff. Whoever last handled it had eaten bacon and oranges for- no, not breakfast, scent too old- for supper, maybe. And faint scent of perfume and- what was this?- some other smell. Without opening the bag he knew this was a woman’s bag.
But he unzipped it anyway and riffled through its contents: clothes, toiletries, a book. Obviously a woman’s. Amount of clothes: by what he knew of women, enough for maybe a day or two. All the clothes smelled fresh, so she was entering. Entering his house? Why?
Book was cheap- some romantic novel, featuring a busty blonde and a shiny bronzed man embracing. Gregory made a face. Peeking inside, he saw a written name: Susan. Just Susan. Gregory searched his memory. He know anyone named Susan? Uh, no.
Gregory reached the bottom of the bag. He found nothing else of interest, so he put everything back in and zipped up the bag. Satisfied, Gregory made a mental note to tell Pollux tomorrow- except his mental notes rarely lasted. He scribbled on a Post-it, pasted it on his dining table. Help him remember.
Out of habit Gregory ambled over to the bedroom-
“ARGH! Who are you what are you doing here!”
There was a woman- red lips, shoulder-length hair, same perfume as ‘Susan’ but with added smell of fried chicken- on his bed. Gregory clutched a scarf for support.
“You’re… You must be Susan. With the bag.”
“Greg? You okay?”
“Uh, how did you get in? Into my house?”
“You gave me the keys, Greg, are you sure you’re alright? The doctor said there’d be-“
“You smell funny.”
The woman paused, because there never is, really, a good reply to remarks like this.
“I’m your wife! I’m Susan!”
Oh dear. Oh dear, now he had a wife he didn’t know anything about.
“Your bag, then-“
Gregory frowned, then an idea formed with surprising clarity.
“Take out my notebook on the bedside table, pass it to me, please. Thank you.”
Picking up the phone, Gregory dialled the number labelled, “Emergency”.
Gregory went to the kitchen, where the smell of fried fish was increasingly pungent, and boiled some metallic-smelling water in the kettle. Opening the tea cupboard hit him with a variety of wonderful smells: rosehip, earl grey, chamomile, lavender, raspberry, cinnamon… This was his brainchild, a kind of revenge for the hideous carpeting Pollux insisted on. He picked out a berry tea bag, filled a mug with hot water and dunked it in.
The sweet aroma was captivating. Gregory stood there, smelling, with his eyes firmly closed, because the sight of the red seeping out of the tea bag was always alarming.
