Once upon a time in a far off land, a book fell off the shelf when no one was near it.  The pages flipped over, stopping at almost the centre of the book.  Those in the room turned to look and stare.

This had happened before and it was not a good sign.

Blundell flung the door open and strode into the room.  Those in his way parted, he stood over the book.  Looking down he rubbed his chin and raise an eyebrow.

“I knew this was going to happen.  I knew HE would come back from the grave.”

“Sir?  What are you talking about, who are you talking about?”  asked young Abby as she stood beside her mentor. [119 words.  Do NOT use these in your word count]

The boat had docked only a few hours before, when Radcliffe walked down the gangplank.  He turned and looked back at the ship.  It towered over him; he smiled to himself as he stepped onto the dock.  His old self would stay on board, he had reinvented himself.  Now he had a new name Madox Kellaway and his past was gone.  A new city in a new country, money in the bank, what could go wrong?

Kellaway entered his apartment, it was already furnished. He liked his new taste, very stylish. He needed to get the clothes to match his new life, then everything would be in place.

Kellaway sat at the bar sipping his drink and watching the world go by.  He like this new life, the bigger the city the more anonymous he could be.  No one would recognize him; he had changed so much in the last month. [151 words.  Do NOT use these in your word count]
