Hello. Good to see you. I’ve been waiting awhile.
No problem. Come in. Have a look around. I hope you’ll like what you see.
It’s been some time since anyone’s walked these hallways. Nothing to be sad about though. Just felt a little lonely.
Ah! You like the basement. A little damp. But nothing that some modern treatment won’t fix. Yes, it could make a nice playroom or even a home gym.
The lighting. I pride myself on that. Clean and natural. You won’t find large windows like these. Look out and be one with nature. Cover them with curtains and a warm, cozy atmosphere in here.
Three bedrooms, two baths. Plenty of space. I’m sure you’re planning on starting a family soon. Sorry, don’t mind my words. I’m not at all intrusive.
Paint the walls whatever color you like. They’ve been cream for ages. I think fresh hues will amuse me. They’ll do a world of good to your eyes, the windows to your souls.
There are a few nicks and tears, nothing a good handyman couldn’t repair. The family that lived here before you were an adorable bunch of six. Four growing children are a handful. I loved their sneaky tricks.
Laughter and shouts echoed all day. The lawn in the back was a wonderland. Pirates, demons, and princesses, every day showed a new adventure. There was no dearth of imagination. But children grow and move on.
And ageing parents don’t need so much space. They left with their memories, but I still live with their everlasting impressions, etched upon my sturdy character. Who can forget warmth and familiarity?
So please as you pass through the dining and enter the kitchen, a small request from me. Make a house a home again. Open my doors and windows to love. Air out the staleness, dust off the indifference, shine the floors with wholesome goodness.
I’ll keep you safe and believe me, I need you more than you need me.
Lulu and Laxmi have it bad at school. Their only fault, the color of their skin. But their hearts shout out in unison – Save It White Supremacist!
