Nothing more could be done there at the moment without risk of making more trouble or frustration. Maybe absently and peacefully straightening up the front of shop was in order, the man picking up a rag from behind the counter and moving around the shelves for a bit to clean here and there.
Adam tappity-tapped his way into the shop then paused to let his eyes adjust behind his big over-sized purple sunglasses. His support cane was clutched in his left hand and a small list of things he needed was in his right. He had taken the time to write it out before he left work and it had taken him a while to do. The handwriting wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t great either and there might have been one or two things written in German as he tended to do when he forgot what the item was called in English.

While his eyesite was getting better – kind of – it wasn’t back to normal and Adam had his doubts that it ever would be normal again. His one concern was tapping around the shop and accidently bumping into things or whacking something with his support cane. He sighed. He probably should have asked someone to come along with him, but who would he have asked?

Over the usual apothecary smells, Adam could smell something…off…but he wasn’t sure what it was. Perhaps a potion brewing in the back room or next door. It smelled like the bubble over had burned. He also heard someone moving around. ”Hallo?” he called with his heavy German accident. Maybe the shop keeper was around and could help him with his list. Adam was sure taking a few minutes to help him would be preferable to Adam bumbling around the shop blindly.
