1. Scene One
“Excuse me, ma’am. There is someone outside asking for an appointment with you.” said the maid as she entered Synthia’s room.
Synthia sat in a chair facing the other way around and was motionless for a moment. It was a dreadful sight. Pictures of every other man pinned on the wall and cross referenced to each other through a series of newspaper articles in the form of a web. It was as if she were working on something. Every time, the maid, Miss Norice entered her room, she had this gut feeling of horror. Something seemed unusual. Something was not right.
There was a long silence as Miss Norice waited for an answer. Clearly she was busy into something important.
“Send her in.” said Synthia in a deep tone.
“How did she know the visitor was a female?” thought the maid as she left for the door.
She walked away with mixed feelings and lot of questions. A moment later she arrived with the lady. As she entered the room; Synthia, for the first time in the last few weeks raised her head and looked straight at Miss Norice.
“Close the door as you leave.”, said Synthia.
