Hollandus Landing Chapter 59: Sylvester Wheeler part XIV

A few weeks later, I received my first royalty check and it was the biggest paycheck I have ever seen.

I went to work and the customer traffic was immense.

“Can I see Sylvester?”

“I want Sylvester to help me find this book.”

“Team Edmunston all the way!”

Those quotes had filled my ears for weeks on end as I became a local celebrity here in Hollandus Landing, Wisconsin. I didn’t have to worry about paying the rent even though I worked at this little bookstore downtown.

“What? You think you’re too good for The Drabble Rouser?” My boss crossed his arms and scowled.

“No, I never thought of such a thing.” I shook my head. Was all the money and fame a catalyst for him to get jealous of me? I hate to sound egotistical, but Edmuston and the Dragon Witch has been giving his business extra money.

“You’re becoming a distraction. Why don’t you just go back to your apartment and don’t ever work here again.”

Wow, how gauche.
