Prologue:

It was heavy, I thought, heavier than it should have been, it was only a key after all, but as I looked down , I realised that the estate agent had just dropped ,what looked to be, an intricately decorated Victorian-style key, into my hand.
“that keys a bit strange, isn’t it ? for such a modern cottage? I enquired. I had seen inside the cottage three days previously and had thought that u would be the perfect home for me, since I had had to move out of the flat Tasha and I had shared because it had reminded me of her too much.
“Yes, the estate agent agreed, whenever they try to make a copy of the key with a more fitting design, it disappears, and one like that re-appears in its place. I don’t know what you’ll do with all five of them, anyway , I’ll leave you to settle in.” and he passed me a heavy plush bag, obviously containing the other four identical keys. I decided to use the first key I had got so I unlocked the door and went in

When he had stopped fussing, and just taken his chair into the study, Robert decided to pop out to the shops to fetch some vital surplies and moreover some tasty ingredence for dinner.He locked the back door,walked through the cottage picking up his wallet and the plush bag,shut the front door firmly and locked it with the first key.

He hurried back to the door, shut it tightly, and on reflection he decided to pull out another key from the plush bag , and see if that would help . he did not want to leave the door to his new house wide open, he had wanted a fresh start, and being burgled would defenetly not be that. He walked another couple of  paces then looked over his shoulder to check it was still shut. Luckly it was.

He started off again down the driveway, turned the corner and was out of sight.

After he had visited the local corner shop Robert went back to the cottage and unlocked the front door with the second key. He stepped inside. Out the window he could see that the world had been painted grey by the shadows of the dark nimbostratus clouds. They were all you could see for miles around.  He switched on the lights, flooding the room with a warm glow. Suddenly, there was a flicker, that continued. Was there something wrong with the electrics? He called up the company and explained what was happening…
