Ghikas' SupermarketArriving on the island

 

I passed the grocery store on my way
to the house, greeted Ghikas and Sofia
and they were happy to see me, we are
good friends and maybe I am their
best customer - I buy all my stuff there and
I never complain or make problems,
but now I was tired after my long trip and
I only bought some yoghurt and fruit,
told them I would be back later to fill up my
refrigerator.

"But now you will sleep for two days",
Ghikas said and laughed.

He knows me.
