Sōseki's Boarding House is the complex on Briar Road owned by John Garrideb where Sōseki Natsume stayed while he was studying in England.

"Is there a Curse?"[edit | edit source]

Main article:The Memoirs of the Clouded Kokoro

A British soldier named John Garrideb went to live in the boarding house as landlord after he was shot in the knee. It was a poor complex so Garrideb's wife, Joan, pretended to be the maid to make it seem like he was rich.

One day, the tenant on the second floor, Selden, was arrested for eighteen counts of robbery and six suspected counts of murder. A street photographer named Duncan Ross came passing by and moved into the flat. Another man named William Petenshy wanted that same flat but since Ross occupied it already he moved in the flat just below. After Selden died, the second floor mysteriously kept getting gas leaks. The flames on the stove keep going out and gas fumes in the room made it hard to breathe. This made people believe that Selden's ghost now haunts the boarding house and curses its residents with death.

Ross' fiance, Viridian Green, begged him to move out in fear of his death. Ross didn't want to live her parents before they graduate from art school but he was in fact going to move to a better place. But later that night he suffocated because of so much gas fumes and died. John Garrideb first noticed that something was wrong because he notice his hearth getting brighter, that means one of the gas lamps in the other rooms went out, the boarding house only had one gas pipe. He kicked down the locked door to find Ross' corpse.

"A Revenge Plan went Wrong"[edit | edit source]

Main article:The Adventure of the Clouded Kokoro

By the time the investigation surrounding Duncan Ross' death was complete, and the gas pipes were fixed, an exchange student from Japan named Sōseki Natsume came to the poor complex to save money on books.
