A slender young woman, with long auburn hair, wearing a light yellow sweater, came up to the counter with a book. It was The Best Baby Names Treasury by Emily Larson.
"I lost the baby, so I won't be needing this. I was hoping to be able to return it," she said, matter-of-factly. I could see the receipt sticking out of the pages of the book.
"I'm so sorry. Yes, of course, no problem at all," I said, glad that there was a receipt, making the return an easy one.
"My mother gave the book to me. Here's the receipt."
"Great, no problem, here you go," I said, giving her her money back. She didn't say another word as she walked out of the store.
