Skin Deep #1

It was time, he decided. Time to advertise. Time for someone new to improve his life.

The old man shuffled across his kitchen, picked up a postcard and penned the following:

WANTED. Fit young man for heavy duties around the house. Top rate of pay. Free accommodation / meals. Call 075263100 to arrange interview.

It was amazing that the corner store agreed to display the ad. The wording was very suspicious indeed, but Marcus was so old and frail that he must be harmless and most certainly did need help.

How could the old man present any threat? How indeed...?

    I thought I'd try my hand at a rolling drama. I hope it works. Here's three to start. More later....

    I hope you'll not be disappointed, Christopher. You've set the bar very high with the Randolph sagas; I hope I've got enough lift!

    Hard to believe this was five years ago. Doesn't seem like it's been that long since I read it.
