Mdina’s the silent city. Secrets it keeps, formed in corners and alleyways, hidden beneath the streets.
Pegman wanted to see the catacombs I’m sure, the little guy likes hanging out with dusty memories.
He rounded the corner and what did he find?
Two lovers under cover of shadows.
It was clear, he says, they knew one another though obvious enough they weren’t meant to be pinned against that cathedral wall together.
From what he could gather, the little dude could be a spy, it was her honeymoon but not with that guy.
He was some fly by the seat guitar playin’ hippie you see and she was daddy’s little princess, betrothed to a man of his “heavy influencing”.
She visits the old city in the summers now with a child named Paul. They journey the streets and she talks of memories.
But there’s one she won’t say, out loud anyway.

I’ve been all around the world chasing that little guy. Let me tell you a thing or two, the guys got some secrets.
Just wonder, a guy who’s been spotted just about everywhere on god’s green earth? Why else would you hop from continent to continent like that?
Just ask him what went down at the Billinudgel Hotel between that Mr. and his wayward Mrs. Took them forever to clean the place up after … I don’t know what Mr. Pool-boy had been eating but it definitely stained the ceiling. The Mr. remained calm, even had a beer while Mr. Pool-boy’s pieces …
Well, maybe he won’t tell, that makes him an accomplice.
Maybe they pry it from the bastards dying lips so he’s an eye witness.
Either way, come a little closer, I’ll tell you something real.
Pegman didn’t see shit.
And me? It’s my job to keep it that way.

This is my first try at the What Pegman Saw challenge. I’ve seen a few other bloggers I follow participating and it seems interesting. Every week there’s a new place, based on Google street view. This week’s destination is The Billinudgel Hotel, NSW, Australia.
You can find rules here and this weeks destination here.
