But I know there is an expensive, beautiful lamp in an exquisitely furnished room full of antiques behind that window,” John reiterated.
“How do you know? Have you been there?”
“No, I haven’t been there, but Peter told me. And I trust him. He always tells the truth.”
“I still don’t believe it. All I see is a reflection of myself. How does he know? Has he been in the house?”
“No, he never claimed that. But he said he saw it personally.”
“No, it makes no sense,” Joe responded. “Just look at that house, all broken down, paint peeling and all. There can’t be anything expensive in that run down place! Besides it’s all locked up and looks like no one’s been in there for ages. And I’ve never seen anything other than myself in the window. I just can’t believe it.”
There being nothing more to say, the two walked quietly the rest of the way.
