Lloyd had been a dollmaker for ages. He was great at crafting the most lifelike dolls, and was renowned and highly famous for his craftsmanship and exquisite skills. His work was so realistic and lifelike, it was baffling. How was it possible to make a doll’s face look so alive? People had been known to run into his shop, scared that the babies in the bassinet in the window were actual babies, not dolls. The relief on their faces when they realized their mistake was always so genuine it was almost funny. Lloyd himself was much-loved within his community, who envied his skills. Lloyd always remembered their children’s names, and made them dolls that looked like little versions of them. Though they lived in a little suburb just two miles from the city center, it was agreed by all who saw his work that he was unparalleled in his skills.
He was kind, funny, and oddly charming. He didn’t seem to care much about making money (though he did, indeed, make a lot of money). Though of course, it was seen as a bit odd for a grown man to be so obsessed with doll making, and some found him strange. It didn’t diminish his popularity, though. Lloyd was perpetually single, and didn’t seem interested in dating. Many of the local women offered to set him up with their daughters, or nieces, or even themselves, but he always graciously turned them down, saying he didn’t have time for romance. He lived in a small apartment above his shop, which was extremely convenient for him. It was fairly simple, but he considered himself a fairly simple man. He knew what he liked, he knew how to do his job to pay his bills, and he knew what he liked to do in his free time. But nobody could have guessed what he was like behind closed doors....
