[c-] Casper is [2] inside the [-an] pawn shop at the counter, working. Two 旡 butlers come up carrying a large box between them. They put it on the counter to sell to Casper. Inside are a bunch of 蠶 silkworm 虫 insects, and a miniature 日 sun in the middle to keep them warm. Casper explains that the pawn shop only deals with inanimate goods, even though the 蠶 silkworms do look quite cute.
