Good evening, my lovely friend,
Today I will share the second chapter of my small story. If you have not read the first you can do it here.
Anyway, it is not so big and I would like to hear your opinion, my dear friend.
“ Where are we going?” – the boy had tried to pry out following the man. They already were walking some hours in the city. Greenhat had the map in the hands, but every time, turning to one side, got lost. While stopped near one brown building and looked to the showcases, where were hanging expensive clothes.
“ Why did we come here?” – Isaac was curious. The man only smiled and opened the door. The bell rang reporting about incoming customers, because of that a seller came very fast and began to jump around Greenhat.
“ Welcome to my shop. I am a Master Knijo. How could I help You? Did you come to order a new coat, Mister? Or for a new trousers?” – he could not shut up and all time was talking. Isaac was standing behind Greenhat and only heard this seller’s name showed himself.
“ Knijo? What the strange name,” – he commented too loud paying attention to himself. The Master got frozen and after angry squinted looked to another customer.
“ Who is talking? It seems to me, or to my shop came a huge dirt ball?” – and dramatically grabbed his hair from the face again turned to older customer. “ So, what would You like, Mister?”
“ This young master needs new clothes” – the man said cheerfully. With one hand fixing his hat another put on the boy’s shoulder.
“ I am sorry, but I am not sure, if I can find in my shop something for… this” – stated the Master Knijo frowning. Greenhat thinking touched his beard and evaluating look around the shop.
“ Yes. I think, You are absolutely right. We will find another place,” – and taking the boy’s hand turned to go out, but before behind the back he had heard an overwhelmed voice: “ To my mind, I would find something for the boy. Give me a minute.” The man satisfitied sat down on the wooden chair near the mirror. Isaac stayed to stand exploring the shop. From outside it was almost destroyed, but from inside here was very clearly and esthetic. Every stuff, as the clock with cats, was so simple, but this place looked abnormally. The child already tried to touch the vase painted in hieroglyphs, but heard the angry voice: “ Do not touch. I do not want you to make it dirty.”
A little bit upset the boy pulled his hand away and looked to the mirror. Too large the coat of Greenhat covered all holes of the boy’s clothes, but being barefoot, dirty cheeks and long disorderly hair did not look beautiful.
“ Here, take this,” – said the Master Knijo giving to Isaac black trousers. Blue sweater, shoes and grey coat. At first the child looked at the Master, after asking turned to Greenhat. Saw the agreement in the man eyes he took the clothes and went to the dressing cabin., where showed the Master Knijo.Playing with his new image in front of the mirror Isaac was very happy. It was the first time he dressed the clothes like these, but his mood changed fast. The boy looked upset, because of what Greenhat asked him: “ What happened, my young wayfarer?”
“ These clothes… Are You sure I can have them?” – in the palm of his hand was pinched the edge of the coat as he would be ready to say goodbye to him at any moment. The man put his hand on the boy’s hair and said gently: “ Sure. Why are you saying so?”
“ Because I am dirty and these clothes are new,” – whispered the child lowering his head. The man again fixed his green hat and takind Isaac’s hand said.” Let’s go. We already have to do something with your hair.”
“ What is about money?” – asked The Master Knijo. Greenhat turned to him.
“ Money? I think, we already have payed,” – said. The Masted understanding nothing only blinked his eyes.
“ You did not apologize,” – explained the man showing to the standing boy.
“ For what?” – still could not understand the Master Knijo. Greenhat dressed his coat, which had given to the boy, and putting his hands in the pockets answered: “ For disrespect for your customer. Or may do You want, that everyone would know, how you behave with your guests?”
“ But he is only the boy…”
“ He is the same human as we are,” – Greenhat interrupted. The Master only looked to Isaac with anger, who covered himself behind the Greenhat’s back, and said: ” I am sorry, Mister Customer.”
The boy smiled and turned leaving this place. Greenhat only put the money on the table and without any word also left the shop.
” Thank you,” – said Isaac taking a warm Greenhat’s hand.
