Incident At Wainscotting Manor #48


Whether the shock that clouded Gibberish’s face was the result of Grimper’s revelation or whether it was the sight of still-motionless Lord Grope was not immediately apparent. Indeed, whether it was a mask at all was open to conjecture since Gibberish possessed only one mask: that of The Butler. He could put it on and display the face of professional disdain when workmen called at the back door and the face of eager professional subservience to guests at the front. His mask off, however, his face betrayed every emotion: and now it was showing shock, disbelief and potential horror.
