Chapter 23: Youth
Mayport crept up the back steps of the shop, certain the treads would break under his weight. His morning had been a confusing assault by the legal profession, conducted in Castor’s office at high volumes. In all the blustering, he had spoken no more than five words. His sole occupation had been to sit still wearing a fine suit and a blank smile.
Costor thought he knew what Mayport wanted, and the pressures that would make them happen. Mayport had been surprised and dismayed to find himself the possessor of a tired and dirty Dutch-front shop-house on a quiet street between a butcher and millinery.
