Waylon stared skeptically into the dusty walk-in closet tucked into the back room of Leon’s shop. Books, tomes, bottles, and random cleaning supplies dangled haphazardly off of various shelves, and what Waylon thought was a desk and matching chair were buried beneath a piled of… towels? Clothes? Waylon couldn’t tell, and it made him a little nervous. There was something to the right of the desk that looked like it might be a broom, but it in front of it were stacked unused shelves for the bookcase beside it, and on top of those- a stack of actual books. Why the shelf hadn’t been put together to hold them- Waylon wasn’t about to ask.
