The first address on the list was an apartment building on the same block, but that was too good to be true and when Frank got there, he was told that the last remaining room had been rented the week before. “The kids are coming in for the new semester,” the apartment manager told him, just in case he cared. Armed with that information, Frank studied the list more carefully, compared it to his map, and crossed off all the buildings closer to the University than where he now stood. His best chances lay in those boarding houses and apartments farther west. He set off into the wilderness at a brisk pace.
In the next, and possibly final installment, we will learn something of the plot problem that will confront Frank.
