A man was bothered by the groaning, sound he’d hear from an abandoned house, he’d walk past every night, so he decided to check the property to see what was happening. One day James was in his 40s and was in a happy marriage with his wife Anna. They never had any children, so they poured their time and effort into their respective businesses. James ran and owned a construction company. While Anna ran a nail salon, they were both busy but he’d spend it with his nephews.
Whenever James had free time, he always felt the need to take care of someone and he turned to his nephews to fulfill this need whenever James would travel on a business trip. He didn’t trust. The main office to his assistant, Michael Michael, was 26 years old and a senior manager James took under his wing to work directly in the CEO’s office, as James had no son, whom he could turn his business over to once. He retired he considered. Having Michael take over the leadership position, he had in the future one day James had to drive to a nearby City where his company was building a cottage district.
There was a wasteland in the area and several abandoned houses to be demolished before Construction. James visited the site daily and worked until night as he was about to leave one day. He heard groans from one of the abandoned houses. It was raining heavily and because of the sound of the rain. James wasn’t sure if it was a human or an animal.
Making the sound, although he was curious, James, decided to pay no attention to the sound, so he was rushing to get home to avoid traffic on the freeway. However, as he was about to sleep, he couldn’t shake off the thought: did an animal fall into a trap? He thought to himself the following day: James went back to the site during the day he was busy working with the engineers on beginning the construction job as he prepared to head home at night. He heard the strange sounds again this time James decided to figure out what was happening. He took a shovel from the site and went to the abandoned house.
James could already tell that the voice was of a person, particularly a woman, as he got closer as he opened the House’s broken door. He saw a female Shadow inside the house, she groaned and the shadow slowly disappeared. He approached the room and found an older woman sitting in a corner weeping. I didn’t think anyone would ever find me she stopped what happened. Are you all right?
James rushed to her side. The old woman weakly shook her head. My name is Nancy. I used to live with my grandson. I raised him after his parents abandoned him when he got married.
He and his wife kicked me out of my own house and I had no power to take it back. I didn’t know where to go so I went to my grandmother’s old house here she revealed James was devastated by the story. He looked at the woman’s leg and saw that it was swollen. What happened to you. Are you in pain?
He asked her. There was a hole in the ceiling when I came here, so I decided to patch it up. I found an old chair to stand on, but it gave in. I think I fractured my leg. I cannot walk Nancy whimpered James decided to take Nancy in for the time being, while he figured out what to do.
His wife Anna supported his decision and was proud that her husband had taken the initiative to help the old lady. They took her to the hospital and, after she got her leg cast, they made her sleep in a guest bedroom at home. The following day, James decided to confront the woman’s grandson. James asked for Nancy’s old address and he drove there personally as James knocked on the door. He was dumbfounded to see that Michael, his assistant was the person who opened it.
Your Nancy’s grandson James, said angrily. Michael was speechless. How do you know my nanny? He asked his boss, how do I know your Nanny, James, retorted, well, she’d been living in an abandoned old house in the district we were about to demolish and build cottages. She broke her leg and was whimpering in the dark every day.
How could you kick her out of her own house? Have you no shame? Michael was speechless. He felt terrible for kicking his grandmother out, but more so because his boss found out about his heartless deed. You know, Michael, I thought you were a brilliant man to think.
I was even considering handing over the company to you one day, but today that’s no longer a possibility. I can’t have someone who abandons the woman who raised him working with me, you’re fired James said before, leaving as he watched James leave. Michael’S knees were trembling. He wasn’t sure what broke his heart more, the fact that he hurt his grandmother and left her to fend for herself or that he just lost the opportunity of a lifetime after getting fired. It was then that Michael realized he had his priorities all mixed up.
He had only thought about himself that he never considered Nancy’s feelings, even though she sacrificed so much for him through the years since then he vowed to be better. Meanwhile James promised Nancy that she would receive a cottage in the new District he was building. I will not be selling your grandmother’s old property he revealed to her. Instead, I will build a new home for you and place it under your name. Nancy couldn’t help but cry James had been so gracious to her for allowing her to live with them, but she never expected him to provide her with her own home at her own expense.
One day Michael came to James’s house. Knowing Nancy was there. He asked for forgiveness and promised to be a better grandson to her Michael asked James for another chance at getting a job, so James decided to hire him as a construction. Worker Michael was assigned to the cottage District where he was in charge of rebuilding his grandmother. Soon, to be home, he passed up a roof and ensured the house had everything.
Nancy could need Nancy lived in her own house, while James and Anna took care of her from then on. They would spend time with her, bring her food and invite her over on special occasions, so she never needed to be alone.
