A man living in a small country hotel becomes obsessed with the only other permanent resident -a strange pale man who moves from room to room. He is so very pale, the man in room no 212 has come here for a rest. One can’t believe that he is ill, he is tall and straight It is odd, too, with so many vacant rooms, he should have chosen no 212 at the extreme rear. If only it were not so lonely. I must devise a way of a meeting of the pale man in room no 212. Incidentally, I wonder why he has moved from room no 212. He was coming out of his new office. We nodded again, detected a certain malign satisfaction in his dull, black eyes. The room clerk has been enough to prevent me from questioning him about his mysterious guest. The pale man was trying to please, for he has again changed his room .and one can be baffled by his conduct. He has done it yet. He is now occupying room no 219. What possible motive could he have? He must either skip or remain where he is, for a permanent guest, an ancient lady occupies room no 208. The mysterious guest was not forced to stay where he was, nor did he have to skip a room. The lady was residing in room no 208 simplified matters by dying. No one knows the cause of her death -may be due to old age. I was among the curious few who attended her funeral. The pale man was seen leaving her room, and there was a smile on his face, but, perhaps his smile was meaningless. He has not made his scheduled move, and it was tough to understand his eccentric conduct. The pale man has done an astounding thing. He has skipped three rooms and moved all the way to no 203. The pale man sat in a rocking -chair idly smoking a cigarette., He looked up into my eyes and smiled. The whole mystery of the man’s conduct is beginning to irk me .’please tell me, who is the man in no 207?’The Hotel clerk stared wearily and uncomprehendingly ‘You must be mistaken. That room is unoccupied .’but I saw the pale man there two nights before .the hotel man regarded me dubiously ‘I can assure you there is no such person in the house. You are the only guest we registered that day, but I have seen him more than twenty times. He was in room no 212; then he kept moving toward the front, now he was in room no 202. ‘ you are crazy -he exclaimed. The pale man’s room was opened, and it was empty. I suppose I should have guessed his identity when he skipped the three places the night I fell unconscious upon the floor In a single night of triumph he advanced until he was almost to my door. Meanwhile, I have only to wait beyond my bolted door and door swings slowly open -can one identify this pale man?
