Countess, you have a question?
Yes. I am consistently disturbed outside on the roof when I bask.
Right. We will look into that.
Consistently. When I bask.
Yes. What sort of disturbance? Ruffians. Locals. Angry peasants?
Nearly. But not so much peasants as alligators. On the roof.
Rooves, conservatories 2 and 3. I’ve seen them too.
Alligators? Are you certain.
Passing the windows, walking about. It seems they are everywhere I turn up there.
She turns frequently while basking.
Have you considered basking elsewhere?
I shouldn’t have to. My bedrooms are near the conservatories and I wish to bask there. The restorative effects of basking are erased by lengthy transit.(murmurs all around. Nodding. Furrowing.)
Countess, we shall look into this.
Thank you. Gentlemen, my bedclothes.
Yes. Good night.
