Day VI. Somewhere in Manhattan. 11.51 a.m.

Brilliant light covered the room with a mix of blue and yellow shining. She was sat down, with a very elegant white dress, smoking a cigarette with no filter.

‘You were selected, John.’ Lorraine said in a low voice. ‘We had been observing you for months. We needed to know all about you before doing it. First, we tapped all your communications, telephones, internet… People usually forget things about their own lives… we don’t. We know much more about you than you.’

‘What’s you role here? You are not journalist, aren’t you?’

‘In this life, I was a journalist by trade once… and I am a medicine doctor too… and I was an actress at the school. And now…’ she stood up and opened her arms here, with a theatrical face. ‘…I am a nurse, would you have preferred an old woman with a great mustache? I like you, John. I have passed hours and hours observing you. I’m your best fan.’

He started to enjoy the funny situation: that girl in front of him knew more about him than himself. Then, he imagined the building he was in: a lonely building with just three residents. The building was both: a jail and a hospital, with everything you need to live or die, it’s always the same.

‘You are not a prisoner, John. You can leave the room if you want. We are here to take care of you. We don’t need to retain you to see you.’

‘Do you create this?’ He finally asked.

‘I helped to create it. But, at the end, you will remember the most ironic answer to the question you’ve ever asked.’

He repeated the last phrase in the deepest place of his mind: ‘the most ironic answer to the question you’ve ever asked’. Is she only flirting with her toy or playing with the meal she’s going to eat? Some hours ago, he dreamt with a creature growing inside him… now, he understood that Lorraine was in fact the mother of that creature with long jaws and sharp teeth. He began to cough again.

‘Open the windows, please.’ He asked for. She did it and he could see the cloudless sky. Suddenly, like an epiphany, he answered the question that nobody questioned. ‘I was.’

And finally, Lorraine laughed.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
