Quick Pawn

by Quiet Guy

He is a groundskeeper as well as a grave digger. He's an old man with a dirty shovel which he uses to hold up his bent figure. He sneaks into the cemetery at night with the intent to dig up bodies.

He snatches necklaces from their necks as well as rings from their cold fingers. His lantern glows above dirt and deceased figures. He liked how the valuables obtained glimmered.He glares intently to see if they are gold or silver. If they are he takes them back to his pawn shop to sell to the highest bidder.

He is cautious, devising a way to make sure nothing is noticed by a potential family member. He takes the jewelry to the back of his business and throws them into a pot atop a bed of embers. They melt and he reshapes them. He is a shape shifter.

He then displays the new merchandise in the front of the shop to awe visitors. It is now opening time. The bell rings as the door opens and he yells "Welcome to quick pawn, we sell gold and silver!!!"
