Ausable told this imaginary story in such a convincing way that Max fully believed that there was a balcony outside the window. At that time a waiter of the hotel knocked at the door. Ausable told Max that it would be the police. The police were coming to check whether everything was alright. Max already believed in the existence of the balcony.
