"Chuck, you better get over to the Children's Castle store. There's a real old lady wandering around in there."
Stacey Forsythe

Short Sighted is a mission in Dead Rising 2 and Off the Record about a short-sighted lady who is confused by the situation and is trying to talk to the zombies.


Esther Alwin, is found in Children's Castle, confused and crabby. She believes Chuck is a store employee and continuously scolds him for "poor service". After lengthily convincing her what's happening, she comes to her senses and realizes that Chuck is being sincere about the zombie outbreak. She then agrees to be escorted, but warns Chuck she is an old lady and will be slow, allowing Chuck to carry her back to the Safe House.

If Chuck is carrying the Leadership magazine, Esther will not need to be carried.
