Silver always arrives at Dr. Stanford’s clinic in the late afternoon. He goes once a month. He is always very elegant. Today he has to wait as the doctor is still with a patient; the winter has colds running rife among the school children. Her clinic is a paediatric one. I’m positive he’s run into Mrs. Andersen and her children in the waiting room.

The Anderson children are always ill and are at the clinic every month, I think they are pretending, all they really want to do is spend an afternoon in Dr Stanford’s play room. Children these days are very smart, they even know how to lie. I never learnt how to, I only know how to imagine, which is different.

 

Mrs Anderson leaves the building holding her daughter by the hand, which means he is already entering into Dr Stanford's office. I think he’s French, all men that carry a suitcase and wear a hat are french, or bachelors, or maybe even both. He greets her by her name, Ava, and she tells him how much she’s missed him.

Silver is a couturier. Dr Stanford doesn’t have time to go shopping, I hardly ever see her go out; she’s too busy looking after our children, well I mean, other people’s children, I still don’t have any. Silver will unpack some of his new creations that he’s brought for Ava to try, they are stunning. I wonder when Dr Stanford actually has the time to wear all these dresses?
