Mr. Lamb always leaves his gates open to welcome strangers. He lived in a big house without curtains. Derry also found Mr. Lamb’s conversation peculiar. He did not understand the questions Mr. Lamb asked him. He asked Derry to always keep his ears shut. Then, he told him the story of the man who locked himself in his room to escape from any kind of danger and died when a picture fell off the wall on his head and killed him.
