Inheriting Old Man Maverick

The old man frowned. He seemed about to say something and then he relented. The lawyer gestured to his assistant to wheel Mr. Maverick out, but Maverick wasn't having it. When he felt himself being pushed, he turned. "What? Unhand me, woman!" The assistant, who was a young man in his early twenties, looked taken aback and let go. - @harlowjourney

Celebrating Life

They were happy; they made plans to travel to Europe and visit the Prado Museum. Ed wanted to have 5 children and Rose only 2; they laughed endlessly and never agreed on the number of children. They made long lists of the names they liked the most: Frank, Eduard, Rose, Camila, Zulma, Anastasia, Pamela, and José were the preferred names. They enjoyed both rainy sunrises and sunny days. The chocolate ice cream was as tasty as oatmeal with no sugar or milk. Love is almighty in a couple in loves. -@marcybetancourt

The Unwanted Inheritance

A 22 year old Rick had just finished his shift working as a barista at the redfish coffee shop. He had been working there for roughly a year now , and quite frankly he was tired of doing so. He was tired of accidently spilling coffee and making a mess, he was tired of the rude customers, the ones who would throw change in his face, or scold him whenever their coffee was taking too long, and worst of all, he was tired of the 3a.m. opening shifts. -@b0s

The Mc Millers

The truth is that only old man Miller and his granddaughter, Miss Charlotte, are now known to live there and all the servants have been reduced to a single butler who can be seen some evenings tidying up the plants in the front garden. As for Miss Charlotte some claim to have seen her at night on the main balcony abandoned on the railing and the old man is only waiting for the news of his death. -@joalheal

The Seer!

I never felt seen like Edun made me feel. He was the greatest warrior of our time, the strongest of them all. He had shiny Ebony skin that made every maiden drool over him. However, he chose me as his bride. We were to be united after the battle. -@kei2

The Cloudy Island

Our markings and good works are left there to help the people. But there's a secret place that has our fortune. A place we call to our inheritance. It's far away from human reach, across the seas, and surrounded by clouds. It's an Island with advanced people. People with excellent knowledge and the gift of longevity. And on this island lies a big mansion built with gold, it supplies the island electricity and purified water, and food. -@ubani1
