Gustafson shuffled down the street as fast as his aged bones would allow. The sun shimmered though the gaps between buildings as it did each morning on his way to open his shop.

He stopped as a hard breath escaped his chest. There was Monroe, his prized mannequin, waiting for him on the doorstep. This was the fourth time this month. As always the door was locked tight, and there was no sign of forced entry.

“My friend it seems you get out more than I”, Gustafson said. He unlocked the door and carried the mannequin inside piece by piece.
