A brief tale about people, and making up their background stories and purposes.

The Tales

As I sit here at my window, I watch the activities unfolding on the other side of the pane of glass. The River Wey slowly passes through the city centre, the bridge crossing it has traffic constantly streaming over. A fisherman leans over the railing to one side of the Wey and is seemingly unperturbed by his lack of success thus far. I amuse myself by creating fantastical stories about the people passing by on the towpath beneath me.

A couple walk hand-in-hand; lovers who first met at work and following a clumsy drunken moment one new years eve had embarked on a long-lasting relationship, stealing the odd weekend together for passionate trysts, this time in Guildford for another romantic weekend away from their respective spouses.

An intelligent looking man in an expensive suit; In Her Majesty's Secret Service, and on a very important mission to meet a contact deep undercover in the Russian embassy. His contact has worked his way up to being the ambassador's assistant and now feeds the British government as much of the details of Russian technology, weapons and intelligence as he can get his hands on.

A stumbling drunk, clutching a bottle in a paper bag; The inventor of blu-tack, who after selling his patents and equations for millions, blew it all on expensive cars, expensive wine and expensive women, now poor, homeless and abandoned by the company he helped to found, he wanders the streets in search of his next drink and tells anyone who will listen that he had it all, and lost it.
