Leon Ernest... Noel Stern. Yes, it's true, I am he. But I assure you, the contents of the Will come as a complete surprise. I thought the old man had disowned me - seeing my birth name was unexpected.
I tried to speak to him actually, at 9.45. But nobody answered when I knocked.
Yes, yes, I always knew he was my father. I wanted to learn what kind of man he had become since he left our family one Christmas all those years ago.
I had hoped he would change but alas, he was the same miserable soul. With his money I'm going to be a better man - I'm going to make sure everyone in this building is cared for. I don't need the money, I'll give it to the poor and needy.
After all, it's Christmas.
