The Innkeeper’s Tale

I’ve got a staff, sure, but it’s mostly me. I keep track of all those rooms. I know who’s in each one at all times. I know, with ninety-nine percent accuracy, which guests are going to leave their rooms a mess and which are not. It’s my one talent. I’ve refused rooms to people who I know will be trouble. They get upset, sometimes, but I hold my ground. I’m not letting you into my brain, I tell them. They look at me like I’m crazy. But we all have rooms in our heads. We have to protect them.

    Hey Mar,

    I am enjoying these so much! This is one of my favourites (my other favourites include Astronomer and Torturer).

      Glad you like them. I’m having a lot of fun looking at ways people make their living. Endlessly fascinating.
