Ann South did not leave the following day. She opened the door and sat by the table. She soon received a number of complaints, not only from Marla.
She made her phone calls in their presence.
Miriam House was falling to ruin, there must be complaints. Ann South had to change her life, again.
She decided that each morning at about 8 am, she would open her back door, which led to the rooms. This proved she was present.
She would sit near the door and look at the tenants as they left. If they needed to speak to her, there she was.
When the majority had gone, Ann would close her door, take a shower.
On most days she would go out, leaving at about ten to be back at around three, no later than four.
Some days, she didn’t leave, but lived on the phone.
