I invite two random strangers with a kid, know about a person I am completely in no relation with, make them think I helped them figure out something and sort of talk them into taking me with them. And oh! I let them pay! And...I have to return that. I have gotten myself into a mess too hard to clean up." She sat thinking for a few moments. It became dark outside.

There was a living room on the right side and a a dinning table on the left side. A little away, from the dinning table was the kitchen. Straight-wards, there was a wooden spiral staircase. Behind the staircase was a a room with a glass door for laundry.

Rose put her hands on her hips and shrugged. "It isn't that much but I guess it will do."

Mary turned at her with raised eyes. "Each time I come here, I look around with widened eyes."

"Sure you do." Replied Rose. "Sit. I will get the stew pot."

Mary sat on a chair around the dining table. Rose came holding a large black vessel filled with a steaming broth of lamb and vegetables. It looked very appetising when it was served with a roasted potatoes and some coconut rice.

"This tastes so wonderful, Rose." Said Mary. "The lamb is so good and goes amazing well with potatoes and rice. I haven't never tried this
