Tina Smith's mouth gapes open just a bit at the request, but the man- or what was a man, is deadly serious. The ghost flails in an angry cloudy growl. 'I'm dead! Dead because of it! Robbed! No one else will help me.' He begs, 'I was robbed, unashamedly so, tried to defend myself and bam! Gone! And the stupid store clerk didn't even try to help me!' He wails, then stares with determination at Tina. 

'I'll pay you, double your fee! All my wealth, I'll sign over to you, just do something!'

Tina sucked her teeth and popped her gum. 

'Alright, I'll do it.' 

She then proceeded to get a sledgehammer and goes to the convenience store. The place is closed, the lights dimmed, only a small light from the back glows, yellow police tape wards off the public, but she had a ...mission to do. She pushes open the door, surprised it's unlocked. The store is fairly cool, an eerie glow creeps from the refrigerators housing drinks and juice. 

She'd never had a case like this before. While avenging the dead had its share of raw violence this was...something else. She steps over a odd bloodstain under the toy machine, the face of the container a little cruddy, the toys stuffed inside were thrown in a disarray, those seeing her approach stared with blank eyes of apathy. She lifts the sledgehammer in her hands and bears down on the murderous machine.

 

Day Two Prompt: You're an assassin with a sixth sense. You help ghosts seek out vengeance for the wrong that was done to them while they were alive.?
