“That statue is broke, just like our family, ” cried Becky.
“Honey, we will be together again, just as soon as they rebuild the rooms on our house the fire destroyed,” Her mom said.
“Mommy, we can buy a tent to live in, then our family will not be broken any more,” Becky cried.
“That won’t work, sweetie.”
“Hi! Mrs. Weldon, ” Mr. Johnson said. “I’m so sorry about your house burning. May I speak with you for a moment?”
“Sure! Shelly take Becky over there to see the other statues,” Mrs. Weldon said.
“Mrs. Weldon, I would like for you and your daughters to live in my cottage while they rebuild your house.”
“Thank you, but I can’t afford it.”
“There will be no charge. I would appreciate you looking after it for me, and taking care of the vegetable and flower gardens. I will be out of the country for six months.”
Mr. Johnson walked back to his car and heard the girls screaming with excitement, which put a smile on his face.
