They wandered the Romeoville store, looking under shelves, and located a smashed bike box with a perfectly good bike inside.
“Daniel was kind of hiding with it,” Timothy said. :He was standing among the clothing with his arms wrapped around it, waiting for me to figure out what happened to the bike I ordered.”
In the meantime, another customer asked Daniel where he found the bike.
That was the bike Timothy and Daniel wound up assembling. It wasn’t a pink Disney princess bike, but it was a blue “Frozen” bike, which was actually better – the nieces are huge “Frozen" fans.
They placed the bike in their brother’s car and the brother took it home to his daughter.
“He got to be the hero who gave it to her,” Timothy said.
