The Antique Chandelier
The old man was always hungry; hungry for gold. Every penny he saved he invested in gold.
He was cunning and earned a lot of pennies. But he lived like a pauper and spent nothing on his orphaned grandson, Pea.
He would not tell Pea where he had hidden his gold. A deprived childhood had turned Pea into a depraved man. He threatened his grandfather who laughed and shouted, “I would rather be dead.”
In frustration, Pea sold the antique chandelier that grandfather loved, for just hundred bucks.
The old man found the chandelier missing; he became hysterical, “We’re ruined.”
