Brie gave one last and longing look towards the complex where she had spent most of her life. Time had not spared those walls.
A market and residential complex which Brie had inherited from her parents and her parents had inherited it from her grandparents and so on. But she was in a huge debt which she was unable to pay off. The result – she had to part with her inherited property.
The Debt Collector cleared his throat and that brought back Brie’s attention to those papers. The Debt Collector was a middle aged man with heavy eyes and stern look.
“Sign on the dotted line Ms. Brie. This will rid you of your debts and we will have what we want – this entire complex” said the Debt Collector with a strict voice.
Brie signed the papers and setting the pen down looked at the colourful umbrellas she had put up to make this place attractive. “I will definitely miss these pretty umbrellas” said Brie.
“Don’t worry Ms. Brie we will bring those down too along with the buildings” said the Debt Collector. “My assistant shall escort you out of this complex. Once you leave we will let the bulldozers do their job” he continued.
Soon a cab was called and Brie sat in it.
“Goodbye Ms. Brie” said the Debt Collector.
“Goodbye” said Brie and gave a wicked smile as the cab rode away. Her smile confused him until the first big blast took him aback.
Before he could turn his head around he understood her motive which cleared the fog in his head. A series of blasts set the entire complex on fire and killed everyone in there.
Brie rode away smiling to herself with contentment.
