Kendall watched and waited while sitting on the designated park bench. His hands clasped the black gym bag that contained his savings, cashed in 401 K and recent paycheck earnings. He still could not believe he was going to purchase his dream Mickey Mantle rookie card. He found the seller on-line. His fingers trembled, checking his watch once again. His thoughts were interrupted when he heard yelling.
“Kendall Come Here!”
Kendall looked up to see a gray-haired man walking to him. With anticipation he ran towards gentleman.
Out of breath, Kendall unzipped the bag, “It’s all there!” The man’s eyes widened.
“Do you have the card?” Kendall could not hold back his excitement.
“Card?” The man composed a smile looking at the money, “Ah yes! It is back in the car.”
A little Boston Terrier came running up to Kendall. “There you are! My escape artist!” The man scooped up the pup, grabbed the gym bag and scooted away assuring Kendall he would be “right back!”
Kendall checked his phone seeing a text from the seller,
“I’ll be there in five minutes!”
Kendall responded, “No worries! Cute dog by the way!"
Kendall’s phone pinged again, “What dog?”
