An Imaginary Sequel to Stinky Street

  Previously on Stinky Street:
  Franklin loved his home but his mum was expecting twins and wanted to sell their house for a bigger one. Franklin and his friend Josh made a plan to prevent this. They created some problems for the house and frightened off the buyer, Mr Bragg. Luckily for Franklin, his next-door neighbour solved the space problem by selling the family the upstairs of her house. Therefore, poor Mr Bragg had to buy number forty, an undesirable house of mice, damp and horrible wallpapers.
  Then what happened?
  Edith writes as follows
  It was Christmas time when Mr Bragg finally bought number forty, Stanley Street, unwillingly. Actually, it “took his breath away.”
  The front door squeaked, and Mr Bragg came in. But he was soon appalled by the dinginess of the house. The dark damp seemed to cover every inch of the wall and the spider webs filled every corner. Mr Bragg just glowered without speaking.
  The worst was yet to come. Mr Bragg decided to make a cup of coffee for himself. He loved coffee. It could comfort him. Then he sat on an old, dusty chair and was ready for a cup of — “Ouch!” he groaned painfully. Now Mr Bragg was sitting on the floor with a broken chair. The old chair was obviously too vulnerable to sit on. And then came that ringing sound — he broke his favourite cup because a big, fluffy spider was creeping across the cup just then!
  “Enough! That’s totally enough and today is the worst Christmas I’ve ever had! Now I’m going to bed!” said Mr Bragg in an angry voice. Though he was tired of struggling to free himself from the terrible stairs which stuck his feet before he went to bed, he still couldn’t fall asleep. Here came a nightmare. Something was running under his bed, probably a pile of rats! Gradually, the noise lowered. With the wind chimes tinkling on the balcony, he finally fell asleep and chuckled in his dream.
  The next morning, Mr Bragg was so busy running up and down that he forgot to put his slippers on. Nobody could manage to know what he was doing. He got an idea — a capital idea.
  The next spring came when everybody found the dirty old number forty had gone. Right there was a fine violet house — a coffee shop. The smell of coffee floated into every corner of the Street. Everyone came to have a cup of coffee, even the boys. Franklin and Josh became frequent visitors and Mr Bragg wasn’t mad at them any more.
  The story ended here when Mr Bragg was holding a cup of coffee and standing on the new, spotless pine floor. He felt safe and warm. The best things in life cannot be bought but be created.
