So... how did I end up in front of this Goya? 

Minutes earlier, I hadn't even known that as its name. Even so, this plant was the first detail that stuck out when I let myself in through the frosted glass door.

The suite felt absolutely different than before. But other than the Goya, I couldn't spot anything else off. I slowly painted the walls and floors with my eyes, trying to find something else that had changed. 

Something inside me kept me from flicking on the lights. Just as my finger was about to reach the switch, the office beckoned whatever was inside me. I walked in to find a single note, along with a bottle of whiskey, on top of the desk.

I trust you have upheld your end of the deal. One minor issue has cropped up. I don’t expect to be returning to the office. Maybe you can get some use out of it while this all blows over. I even had a Goya put up for you in the reception space.

I must've read the note five times. Through the window I heard the city coming alive. Cars. People going out to bars. Noise of humans. Still holding onto the note, I returned to Mr. Ball's office to pour myself a drink, I noticed that the portrait on the wall was gone.

    @abrahamKim OMG it's one post in the spotlight, but a whole series hidden underneath! Very intriguing. I have to find some time and peace of mind to read them all. With a glass of whiskey, I suppose.

    @abrahamKim yes! mysterious Goya... this vibe has reminded me somewhat of the Dresden files, do you know these?

      No! I've seen that title though... just can't remember where. I'll look into it.

      What's your relationship to the Dresden Files?

      @abrahamKim I love it! It's pretty cool in the beginning and then, it just gets better. A spirituous mix of fantasy and mystery styles by Jim Butcher. It's almost disappointing to discover there's no more book when you finish reading it.

    @abrahamKim - Thank you Sir Abe. This Westcity write up is generating new characters. Who is the Ball fellow who is making you anxious?

    So when is my spotlight day. I shall entertain y'all with some fascinating write up.

      I'll linkup with you via email to talk about logistics. Very excited to have the spotlight on you next.

      But actually this Ball fellow was created by a friend of mine couple years ago, and I loved him so much that I adopted him and spun off stories.
