During the restoration works at the Regency Pile, Malvolio Claxendell is staying in a small (bijou) b&b. Although it is comfortable, each night at about 2.30 am he is woken by the same loud farewell conversation.
He cannot sleep trying to interpret the message. Tonight, to divert himself, he works on a new idea. Behind the Pile is a plot of land ideal for an open air theatre. He sketches some designs, then turns to the glass of iced vodka that awaits him. As he falls asleep he works out the message.
‘See you later.’
