Story starter: free for the taking

The fog of an October evening occluded the arrival of a carriage to the township of Bronswick so that none could discern through the mists that the townhouse at 18 Merriwether Lane was again to be occupied, save only those neighbors across the way that might have the vantage. The girl of the house, a Miss Anne Danubar, was staring into the gray streets when the clod of horse hooves broke pace and rested. From the carriage stepped two men, an elderly gentleman and a younger, who unlocked the gate to the yard which had never stood unlocked in times rememembered. The driver aided them with their modest luggage and soon they were inside, the carriage leaving.
