When I turned to throw more of the balls away, I realised they were just watching me. They wouldn’t believe she’d been in there, or that she’d got out. They told me they would have seen her, that she’d have had to come past them. They kept telling me I was being crazy, but they didn’t try to stop me, and eventually I cleared the room of all the balls, while they stood and waited for the police I’d made them call.

I was going to catalogue its secrets, but that was for my benefit, not the city’s, and this is just as good.
