Komerad Dirge

Unit five is an apartment building in a line of apartment buildings, up there in the more western part of Paul's Doomed Yahweh. Unit five has three stories, six apartments. Each apartment has two bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom and a living area. It's mostly older couples, settled to theirs lives, their children have children of their own. And it's a new town, bent to the prerogative of development, a hasty expansion, strategic as much as anything else.

Unit five soon after it was occupied had a water problem. The first attempt to fix the problem resulted in water to Unit one and Unit three being switched off until the problem was resolved. This led to some very unhappy home owners who in semi retirement had very little to do in the course of their day. Their contribution to Chapter Nineteen of The Windral hinges on your writer of pulps ability to describe a song. After long discussion with our hero the current opinion is to think of this song as a smell. So it's all very exciting again.
