Quandary Resolution 2533
triskaidekaphobia, misanthropic, continual, blandishment
We went to arrest the Chairman in his office on the top floor of an office building clearly designed by a triskaidekaphobic misanthrope: there was no thirteenth floor and no elevators either, so that by the time we got to the penthouse, our uniforms were damp with sweat and our heartbeats had started to blur together into a continuous thundering, drowning out the blandishments of DCS Mellon, who was indefatigable in his attempts to flatter and cajole us up the last eight flights of stairs.
