Mrs. Hall entered the guest room. Susan was correct, the place was a pigsty.
Mrs. Hall hadn’t seen the guest, Griffin, in days. Griffin was the most exasperating of men! He could be kind, when it suited him. But he was much more wont to violence.
She thought he was at least tidy. Until now. The room was strewn with discarded clothing and medical bandages. There were piles of books, some open. Her books!
Henry James’ latest, The Ambassadors, was open, its spine creased. Livid, Mrs. Hall grabbed it.
“Please put the book down, Mrs. Hall,” Griffin, the invisible man, said.
OK, it looked like those reading glasses were floating in front of the book, which I think is The Ambassadors. The problem, of course, is that The Invisible Man was published a half a dozen years before The Ambassadors. Oh well, maybe Griffin was still around in 1903. Of course, since H. G. Wells is involved, maybe he used the Time Machine ;)
