"Uhmmm. Do I know you?" I felt silly to ask such obvious question.
"I am a frequent visitor to this place and .... also I have heard many things about you, darling."
"From who might it be?" I had a guess he might be this friend of Edmund, but didn't want to jump to conclusions yet.
"Well, that will be my little secret."
William was very odd and he made me feel uncomfortable in his presence. I could say he is friendly and I had nothing against it, but at this very moment he was too friendly for my liking and comfort.
I had no reason to question his knowledge about me too. By now, many people have gotten to hear about my existence and if he said he comes here often, then someone from this family might have told him things. That is Edmund most likely.
