Your name is Jim. You’re 23 and you’ve been living from paycheck to paycheck. That was until last month, when you lost your job at the gas station. You studied to be an artist, to make the world better, but the world got the better of you. As you sit outside a store scribbling on a receipt, your last ten dollars spent and your lower lip wobbling, a young woman sees. She hands you $50 for it, then a note.
I bought your art before you made it big! Someday it’ll be priceless.
You must find her!
