Connor felt in some place like Nerdvana: action figures, posters, card games, videogames, role-playing games.... Ok, he was there to buy presents for his friends, and not for himself, but what was wrong with dreaming? Oh God! Was that a C-3PO Action Figure? And vintage?!? “It’s the most beautiful thing I ever seen!”

“Oh, you are all the same, aren’t you?”

Connor stared at the stranger young woman at his side: yes, she was speaking to him.

“Excuse me?”

“My former boyfriend Dwayne was just like you. But don’t you realize that you’re too big to play with kid’s toys?”

Connor didn’t know what to say, but before he could think at something to reply, a clear and firm voice said from behind the girl: “Those are not toys. They are valuable collectibles, rarities. And then, it’s not their fault if your boyfriend left you, and you know it, don’t you?”

The woman flushed, and went away muttering an “I’m sorry”.

“Oh, that was quite rude!” said Connor, but the adoring eyes and smile with which he was looking at Lester contradict his words. “I’m really glad that you finally appreciate action figures…” he said a moment later “ hero!”

“Don’t be silly, Con, they actually are toys, and a grown up man shouldn’t be so excited about them.”

“Yeah, yeah” said Connor, with a whining voice. Lester sighed and lifted his eyes, and then, when Connor was far enough, he took the action figure and brought it to the shop assistant.

“190 £”

“HOW MUCH??!?”

“It’s a 1978 edition, a rarity…”

“Yes, yes....” Lester sighed and lifted his eyes, again, while pulling out his credit card. But then he remembered Connor’s adoring gaze, and with a smile he thought that he wasn’t paying too much for that, eventually.
