Making a monster part 2

 As  Stephen's file grew, so did his collection of objects. For some time, there had been talk of him having a suitcase as psychiatric patients used to do, containing their treasures. Or, if you're Stephen, a collection of other peoples treasures picked up as he pads his way around the quiet corridors. Now he has one and is the first of my monsters to have actual closet space. Photographs of some of his prize pieces form part of the file contents.

Someone once asked me if he's lonely. I don't think so, but I do sometimes wonder what he feels when he holds things like this ?

Found by author Sean Walter. They might open one of the sheds in the asylum gardens.

A present from his friend John Bedder. Stephen loves glasses and these came complete with a polishing cloth and newspaper cutting.

This has to be entertaining from his point of view, a box full of lovely tactile things. He can't read properly any more but maybe he knows this game
