There before them lay their last supper.

The mains were untouched with only a bite or two taken from the bagels.

The glasses were stained from the wine left standing in the glasses.

It had taken the searchers several days to find the dining room. The old couple lived in a sprawling mansion where the corridors and passages were warren-like.
