The Old-Clock Shop Exercise 14
One of the two men who visited Ray was in his twenties, the other closer to fifty. The younger man remained at the door. The older man approached the counter with no sign of friendliness in his eyes. Ray observed the shape of a gun and a restless hand in the man’s right coat-pocket.Ray’s old wise eyes told him that the visitor was not really a shopper.
The man might have informed his friend that Ray was deaf and there was no need to worry about anything. He could also have discussed with him what their next plan of action was.
“The watch was nothing special and yet had great powers.” It had ‘great powers’ because it was something that could be exchanged for money and a way to lead people out of a bad situation. On Christmas Eve it had saved the two men who entered the shop from doing something they might later have been sorry for.
