    Considering that they'd gone to Peru to find the lost magical Shakespearean play, that trip had been a failure, because they found no such thing. A more rational person would ask: 'Why would a Shakespearean play be in Peru of all places?' Really, it was only logical that it wouldn't be there and the logical person wouldn't run off to that far away country for that long. But Elmer and his best friend Merl did, because they weren't rational people.

    Luckily for them and their business, though, they had discovered some things in Peru. Some of them they'd procured by less than moral means. For example, they'd been allowed into the private collection of some eccentric Englishman who'd spent the final years of his life in Peru. Elmer had taken some of the many manuscripts he'd owned and he was now planning on selling them.

    They didn't contain anything dangerous or mystical - however Elmer thought that he'd catch a better price for them at a Knockturn Alley shop. Unlike most (rational) people, Elmer had never been scared of the place. He saw the dramatic beauty of it. This was the place for the lost souls, the misunderstood ones. This was where he belonged, in a sense.

    He turned around a corner only to almost collide with someone he used to know from the Ministry. "Oh," Elmer made. He wasn't really in a mood to talk. Hopefully the person wouldn't start asking him where he'd been all this time.
