Fantasy Drabble #268 “Rekkit and the Merchant”

Rekkit, taking the form of an elderly beggar, made his way into a sweets shop and asked the proprietor for a single piece of candy. However, the shopkeeper was selfish and refused, sending him back out into the street. Rekkit returned the next day, and asked again, but again he was refused. He returned every day for six more days only to be refused.

On the ninth day, and every day thereafter, all the customers who entered the shop felt sickness of the stomach and lost their appetite for sweets. The shop closed and the proprietor became a beggar himself.
