The Landlady’s Secret

“But I’ve noticed there is an alley parallel to it. Wouldn’t it be more convenient if I used it to get here in the evening?” I asked my new landlady as she gave me directions to the house from my workplace.

There was a shift in the mood. Instantly, the very air in the room became more somber.

“Don’t use that alley. No one does,” the landlady snapped. Her manner did not leave room for any questions. I kept my mouth shut.
