The neighbours began to gossip almost as soon as Barbara and Louise moved in.  The two women had viewed the house together, and paid the asking price without so much as a single word of objection.

They largely kept to themselves, and no one could say that they weren’t quiet neighbours.

“I’m still not sure, I like their type in the village,” Charles Moore said glancing up at the house.

“Things are changing, Chuck,” Donna said, “not that I like it much either.”

“Just don’t seem proper,” Charles added.

Fortunately not all in Heritage Heights took such views.  Barbara and Louise had at least one advocate, Drew Oldridge.  He piped into the conversation with the observation that, “they seemed like model citizens” to him.
