WeWriWa – the new boarder

 From Nineteen Hundred

Kathryn just met the new boarder on December 31, 1899.

***

Mr. Smyth leaned forward. “Where are you from Mr. Thomas?”

“From away,” he replied.

 What does that mean? Kathryn asked herself.

 Next, Mr. Henderson inquired, “And what business are you in Sir, if I may ask?”

 The newcomer looked the man in the eyes and in a soft tone with raised eyebrows answered, “Import-export is my business Sir.”

 The other two gentlemen immediately lost interest.

 Kathryn, who found amusement in studying people, thought Mr. Thomas’ demeanor a bit queer, but she had just been introduced to the man so she gave him the benefit of the doubt.
