Lee was the new neighbour on the block. His next door neighbour was an old man. Mr Mason had lived in the flat for twelve years. He’d never married and kept himself to himself.
A few days after moving in, Lee thought he’d introduce himself to his neighbour.
“Hiya. I’m Lee, your new neighbour.”
“Oh, so that’s why you’ve been going in and out of that flat, is it?”
“Bob. Bob Mason.”
They shook hands.
“I’ll not be having any wild parties, Mr Mason.”
“I don’t mind you having the odd party, lad. You’re a young lad and it’s what you young lads do.”
“I know, Mr Mason, but I know how thin these walls are so it wouldn’t be fair on you if I brought all my mates round.”
“I wish all young people were as considerate as you.”
“Well, I like to get on with my neighbours, Mr Mason.”
“What’s your name again?”
“Lee, Mr Mason.”
“As in Francis.”
“Yeah. Do you like him?”
“Oh he was my favourite, he was.”
