Shopkeeper I felt sorry to leave as I got into the car. The shop hadn't been what I expected. To begin with, the smell hadn't appealed to me. Melting moth balls, mixed with stale, perfume and .musty linen didn't exactly blend in together. ' At first it was like entering a new world. It was a world of darkness, yet so full of life. Every little intricate object was there and .nothing was missing not even the ancient bobbypins that were embedded tightly in wads of cardboard swinging slowly back and forth against the rickety wooden shelf. Cobwebs hung from endless piles of discarded crockery and the stench of camphor filled the air. Tiny silverfish had left their mark in every item of clothing and linen. Old books stacked' in untidy corner heaps were all covered in a thin sheet of dust, whilst on creaking shelves above them stood weary gjrey candles, now only itired stumps remaining. Prams and cradles stood in one corner fragile jwith age." Their rusty wheel' ,rims had almost cracked under the unbearable weight of the heavy steel frame. ' The oldest item in the shop was an antique grandfather clock looking j almost as musty, as the . shopkeeper himself. His greasy beard was limp and grey, swaying gently to and fro in the . humid breeze of the scorching afternoon. , His smooth bald ead. was lined with wrinkles, as was his soft face. Shadows under his eyes told the story of loneliness and depression, sadness and long nights. The hollow cheekbones were dull and grey, creating a face that was a frail image. When he smiled at me the Old face erupted into a shining beacon, filled with happiness and love. It seemed to change the whole . appearance of the shop; the laughing' blue eyes' and the rosy cheeks seemed to break the barrier of loneliness that lay between him and the world. I smiled back. ' . Now he was free, and had found a friend in the world that he thought he had lost forever. Prize of $5 to Jackie (14) , Pleasant Crt, Car-' lingford. 91v THE i SUN-HERALD, -JULY 4,1 982 93 1
