The Hollow Men
Bike Courier and Local Busybody
James Lake is a tall, gangly, awkward twenty-something, of the sort that seems to inevitably overrun the downtown area of any major metropolitan area. He is earnest and well-meaning, but clumsy and sometimes slow with words. He is louder than he means to be, and doesn’t do well with small spaces. He works as a bike courier for at least half a dozen different local businesses, and despite his generally inept behavior, it is rare that a parcel in his care does not arrive safely at its destination.
