Chapter Fifteen, in which an unexpected Guest appears in the Store

A new window display goes up this morning. We have removed the travel books, of which several sold. In their place goes a Back-to-School theme: textbooks, books on education, books for teachers, and references. We have a college in town, which has an acclaimed nursing program, so we hope to derive some sales from there, and we have focused on stocking any material which nursing students will need or find valuable in their education.

While dusting off the shelves and corners, i tiny little lizard leaped from an artificial plant. Where he came from, or why he found the plant so inviting I don't know. Perhaps he was surviving on spiders found in the cracks at night. He brought a smile to my face, and I escorted him safely across the street and into the foliage where I hope he will live a long and uneventful life.
