The scented candle’s aroma filled the room. Ellis Lark set down a book and grabbed the brown coat that had slept the night on the coat hanger. It was two sizes too large, but a great bargain nonetheless. His feet ached from the shoes that pinched, and the cold watch on his arm was like the icy weather...
