Four years he'd been living there, Gil Lajolan had never entered the shop at the bottom floor of his parents apartment building. He'd been to scared at age 13,busy age 14, at age 15 he'd been apathetic to everything, and now at 16 years old, he'd been so distracted by everything in and outside of his head that he'd nearly forgotten that it was down there. Passing by the apartment door where the shop was located while heading out to school on what seemed to be an average fall day, he read the sign nailed to the door."Klaus' Shop Of Fortunes, Horrors, And Sculpture.: He almost wanted to facepalm at how stupid a kid he used to be."I was scared if a friggin swami store?," he sighed exasperation weighing heavily in his voice. As he turned to leave, the door swung open and a half dressed figure grabbed his shoulder. "Well,well an eavesdropper at the door?," they murmured sounding like they were in a trance. "Ah shit," Gil thought panickedly. " Come on then loose ear turn and face me." Gil sighed and did what they asked, not wanting to cause a ruckus. The person who had been gripping his shoulder was an albino skinned man with glassy blue eyes, thin short hair dyed the color of a bruise, and the oddest thing about him besides his Cheshire cat-like grin,high cheekbones, and boyish appearance was the paint adorning his face, of a realistic skull, making his face look like a reverse x-ray. "Ahhh now I can see it, you're not an eavesdropper, just a curious Little Mouse!" Gil ignored the eeriness of how the man seemed to know his nickname and put on his usual mask of cynicism. "What do you need Skeletor? I'm kind of busy" The skull painted man feigned offense. " How rude! You were the one lurking on my doorstep!" Gil turned and started walking away, having had enough of this strange man's bullshit. As he reached the end of the hall he felt a voice whisper in his ear. "Come back,come with me" He turned back and headed toward the shop. Suddenly time didn't seem as urgent.
