Shopkeeper


Harold only growled slightly while wrapping ‘The Panderings of Melodia’ as an extra birthday gift for Lucy. How many times had he asked John to make an authentic copy of it last week? The imp had concentrated on the “Malloria Malefic” instead, reasoning that since they had a genuine buyer, it took priority over an extra birthday gift for Lucy.

The imp was right, of course , but that didn’t stop Harold’s grumbles. As John had pointed out, Lucy was fourteen and far more interested in pop music than the history of the Faery Plane. They could always borrow it back to make a copy when Lucy was at school.

What really bugged Harold, though, was that the imp was a better businessman than him.
