Mister Chases Husband For Spending Their Last $ 50 On A ‘Strange’ Easter Egg At The Flea Market, Until He Accidentally Opened It And Discovered Something Exciting Inside.
Rory and George Austin are both orphans. They married as children and lived a good life with their twin daughter and three sons until their home burned down and they were forced to live in a trailer.
Rory and George were both workers and worked hard to make a living. But regardless of their financial situation, they take care of their children with love and they don’t make them feel like they are missing out because they are worse off.
Sure, they don’t hold grand birthday parties or exotic beach vacations, but they do enjoy a humble family picnic or campfire every weekend, Rory’s freshly baked cakes and cookies for birthday parties, and the new clothes that she sewed well on her sewing machine.
Once, a few months before Easter, Rory and George planned to hold a big Easter party for the kids. They started saving early, but unfortunately things didn’t go according to plan, and in the end, all they had was $ 50 of what they had saved.
To save on costs, Rory decided to shop for decorations at a flea market, where he hoped to find a handmade wreath, beautifully painted plastic eggs, a basket and scented candles at a cheaper price than a regular. store.
However, while browsing the flea market, a strange Easter egg noticed him. She is shaped like a rabbit with a strange, funny smile and wears an amazing decoration of sunflowers and lavender. Rory had no idea what went into him, but he couldn’t help but buy it and approach the seller.
“There’s something inside,” George said, twisting the top half of the egg and opening it.
“How much is an egg?” he asked. The old man handed him the egg and he returned it to his hand, quickly rolling his eye at it to see if it was not broken.
“It’s a very good choice, ma’am!”, The salesman said smiling. “I would have sold it for $ 70, but I’ll give you a special discount at Easter and I’ll sell it for $ 50!”

“50 bucks ?!” Rory exclaimed. “That’s too much! Oh, I’m sure you can lower the price a little,” he said softly hoping to persuade the trader. But this is in vain.
“50 bucks is the final prize, ma’am. Either you take it or someone is lucky enough to own it,” he said confidently.
Rory is in a difficult place. She loved that egg. He took 50 dollars and bought it. When he got home and George found out he had spent his last $ 50 on an egg, his anger was boundless.
“$ 50 ?! Rory, are you losing your mind? That man cheated on you! $ 50 for a weird egg?”
“Oh, George, come on! I know it sounds crazy, but look at the rabbit. It’s fun! I’m sure the kids will love it!”
“Funny foot, Rory! Did you know we’ve been gathering for this Easter for a long time! How could you …” George was so angry that he snatched the egg from Rory’s hand for him. throw on the ground.
But suddenly he heard something – a sound coming from inside. When he examined the egg again, he realized his rabbit’s stomach was moving slightly.
“There’s something inside,” George said, turning the top part of the egg and opening it.

Inside, Rory and George discovered a pendant – a shiny piece that seemed to be made of diamonds.
“A pendant?” Rory wondered. “He’s gorgeous. Maybe someone left him inside.”
“Who cares?” laughed George. “It looks like a real diamond! I need to be appraised!”
“Shut up, George,” Rory snatched the pendant from his hands. “I don’t care if it’s a diamond or not; I’ll give it back to the merchant who sold it to me! I don’t want to live on someone else’s money.”
“Are you serious? We can now leave this rotten van and move to a better house! It looks like a real diamond, Rory!”
“I don’t care, George! I’m bringing it back, and that’s it!”
Because of that, Rory went back to the flea market to find the man who sold him eggs, but he wasn’t there. He asked some vendors if they knew when he would return, but no one knew. Rory thought he could never see it again, but an old woman with a small hut in the corner approached him.

“He’s never coming back,” he said. “You will have to go to his hometown. His name is Alfred, he left after selling everything.”
“He wanted to go home, but he didn’t have enough money. I saw you bought him that old egg. It was one of the last ones he sold. Wait, I have his address. He’s my neighbor, but I’ll move to another later. house. “
Rory thanked the woman for her help and went home. He needed money to travel to Alfred’s town, but he didn’t, so he had to ask George for some.
“Hey, George. We still have money left in the emergency fund since last month, don’t you? You remember we said we would use it when there was an emergency. I guess we could use that money and return the pendant.”
“And what makes you think I will support you for this? I told you to sell that necklace, but you didn’t listen. So why would you listen?” he sighed.

“It’s because our decision as adults is important to our children, George.” He held her hands and patiently explained. “Do you want our children to see us as people who take advantage of others? We must return the favor for the sake of our children and set a good example for them, George. Listen, Easter is near and I am “Surely God has a plan for us to do good so we found this egg. Can we go to his town?”
When he calmed down a bit and realized he wasn’t right, George agreed to Rory’s request.
That Saturday, when they visited Alfred in his hometown to return the pendant, he could not hold back his tears.
“Did you come all this way for this? Oh, thank you! This pendant is like no other, by the way. It’s a real diamond pendant, and it’s very special to me.” He opened the pendant and showed them a picture inside. “See this? That’s my wife and my daughter. I lost them both years ago in a car accident.”
George and Rory exchanged pitiful glances. “We’re sorry,” Rory said.
“Oh, it’s not worth it. Come on. Let me make you some tea. And we can have some cookies too. Okay kids?” Alfred smiled at George and Rory’s children.

As Alfred brings them tea, George offers it to the old man. “Well, sir,” he said. “I hope you don’t mind if we ask you to join us in this year’s Easter celebration. My husband and I are both orphans, and our children don’t have grandparents.”
“Oh, I – I would love that,” Alfred said smiling. “Thank you, children.”
Alfred spent Easter with Rory and George that year, and to this day the couple considers this the best Easter they have ever experienced. Maybe it was the feeling of doing the right thing, and that’s why having Alfred with them made them feel better.
Since then, Rory and George have visited Alfred during their children’s summer vacation and they started calling him “Grandpa Alfred”.
Years passed like this until the day Alfred left for his heavenly home. George and Rory attended his funeral and buried the pendant with him.
A few days after the funeral, Alfred’s lawyer sent them an envelope. Inside they found a letter written by Alfred along with a set of documents.
