The weather was glorious, sun shining in a clear blue sky, as crowds of happy people wandered from one attraction to the next. Everything was perfect.
Dee was in hell; the queue for his stall was endless, and an all-too-familiar person was once again standing right in front of him, smiling brightly and holding out his money.

The proceeds from the 27th precinct’s summer carnival were going to Mother’s orphanage to pay for a badly needed new roof, so every cent counted.
