"SON OF A BITCH! GOD.. MOTHER.. Fuuuuuck!"
She was glad the old man wasn't about because he had a tendency these days to try to wack her in the behind with his walking cane when she got mad like this. She didn't mean to curse like a sailor and didn't often do it for the heck of it but when it did happen it always seemed to happen in front of him and she always happened to be in cane's length for a good WHAP!
She didn't mind though. His movement was slow due to his age and general poor health and so the caning didn't hurt really. It just surprised her and put her in a worse fit than before. And, Emma understood that it wasn't really good business to have the sales-witch (and repair witch) cursing like that in front of customers.
But no one was in the shop when the pair of binoculars she was working on expanded just as she was looking into the bloody things. Not outward, away from her face but in toward her face and just as the door chimed as a customer entered the shop too. Emma groaned and held a hand over the eye that got it good and squinted with the other.
