Synopsis

Plot

When you heard that Uncle Jim has left you his small convenience store in his will, you were initially delighted. After all, you've always wanted to stand on your own, make your own money and get forward in life. This sudden opportunity would provide a concrete, convenient platform for trying that out seriously.

You haven't seen Uncle Jim in recent years; mainly you remember going on some fishing trips to the river together when you were a lot younger, but as he lived far away and didn't visit your family much in his later years, you are somewhat surprised that it is to you that he has left his store.

The description of the property, when you first read it in the documents provided, mentioned that the store is situated "by a roadside in rural Kansas, just outside West Middleton". Of course you knew that Uncle lived in those parts, but it didn't fully hit you what rural Kansas can mean until you actually drove to the spot: tumbleweeds, yellow patches of grass here and there amidst the sand, a flat prairie in all directions. The road, continuing in a straight line both east and west, is empty of any vehicles. "Just outside West Middleton" doesn't amount to much when the whole town consists of about five houses. And it's a question of interpretation whether three miles is "just outside". The ramshackle store building looks like it's been out of business for years. Oh well, at least the sunsets are beautiful here.
