This is my participation in Garima's writing challenge, find below the beginning of the story by Garima.
Carrie Allen took a deep breath and sat down on the couch in the drawing room next to Brad, twin brother. She knew their father going to give them a bad news. She glanced at Brad who shook his head. He appeared just as shocked as she was that their father had called them into the room. Their father sat in the chair across from them with a serious look in his face.She didn't want to hear what he would say next but knew she didn't have a choice. She was aware of the ticking the grandfather clock in the corner of the room as she waited for him to speak.
"Brad, Carrie, that isn't easy to say", Their father paused. "I am bankrupt"...................................
Please find below my part of story to finish it.
Mr. Allen told his children not to tell their mom immediately about this disaster news, as she has left few days to live. Mrs. Allen was suffering from a disease and she was on last stage and Doctor informed them that she can live maximum 10 days.
Mrs. Allen was a great lady who supported her family in all circumstances, but now she was tired and she knew that her time is close and soon she has to leave her family. Mrs. Allen taught good things to their children, she taught them about sharing things and distributing things in poor. She taught them that poor people are also human. They deserve everything we've.
Mrs. Allen also played a big role to change his husband's attitude towards poor people.
As they were talking to each other suddenly Mrs. Allen entered in the room. She passed a smile to her family, everyone was happy as she doesn't know anything.
But she said, My sweet heart and my lovely children do you really think that such news can destroy our happiness. She looked at her husband and said. Oh my love, I'm so thankful to you for the beautiful life I've lived with you. I heard your discussion with each other.
Mr. Allen said to her wife, I can't really compete you. You are the greatest person I ever met and the most cute lady.
She said, I'm not greater than my husband neither cute like him. Whole family hugged each other.
Mr. Allen's family was popular among their friends and family not for their wealth but for their kind attitude. Mr. Allen decided to visit his uncle who invited them many times but due to the work load they couldn't manage to visit him.
Mr. Allen wanted to spend maximum time with her wife and he said such news can't change his mind or love for his wife.
Now all family went to visit their uncle and they told him everything about their wealth status and Mrs. Allen's health.

Mr. Allen and the kids realized that they lost their real asset. There was only one thing in everyone's mind and that was Mrs. Allen and her loving attitude.
