When she got into his studio apartment, she brought with her 10 sacks of dresses, blouses, tights, high heel shoes, cream and perfume. He bought a spacious closet and place it in front of a small storage room full to the brim with fishing rods, baits, rubber boots and thermoses at which he stared for a while before blocking the door.
When she left his apartment, she took only the purse with her, leaving behind a closet full of woman's clothing and a storage room full of rods.
Their doors were never opened again.
