The Plan

“Allison, I can’t believe the judge actually granted the house to Asher and you didn’t even receive half of the value!”  Nora pointed out.

“Well, that’s what happens when he has the money to spend on the best attorney in town,” Allison said with a brittle voice.

“What are you going to do now?”

“I’m going to clean the house for him since he is putting it up for sale, now that I have received a scant amount for my share.”

“What?  Why would you do that?”

“I have a plan,” Allison said quietly.

“Allison! You’re not thinking of destroying the inside of the house are you?”

“Of course not.  He doesn’t live in it anymore, he’s just selling it.”

“But, you are not getting any more money from him.”

“No, but time is on my side now, and I intend to use it to my advantage.  I’m a patient person.”

Allison cleaned Asher’s house and he paid her a very small amount  for all of her hard work, and put the house up for sale, then left town on an extended vacation.

The house was in perfect condition, but people found it to have an unusual odor and they would not consider buying it.

So, Asher lowered the price to a ridiculous amount just to get rid of it. He was too busy having fun in France with his new girlfriend.

Allison bought the house anonymously and moved in right away. She promptly removed the foul-smelling chemicals from the air condition vents and from under the stairs!

  1. Ha Jessie I love this. Asher was a greedy brother. I’m happy Alison bought the house at a steal and moved in. What a clever woman to use chemicals to create a bad smell lol.


  2. That was a wily plan! And from the sound of it, nothing more than he deserved! I hope he never finds out what she did or things could get very unpleasant. Good story, Jessie. 🙂


  3. Hahaha! Such a sly and clever woman, Alison is. A sabotage that worked to her advantage. I wonder how would Asher react if he finds out who bought the house. 😀 Great story, Jessie!
