One of the charms of Mason Mystery is the strange opening. This may be one of the strangest; when Mason was working in midnight, a mysterious girl was prowling on the fire escape; Mason tried to catch her who slapped his face and went away; the newspaper reported the incident as Mason's love affair and Della mocked him "it is not safe to trust you alone in the office."
