If Steven had premonitions of the future, as did the crafty former owner, who later boasted he had sold him a dummy, he would never have bought the shop.
The business began to prosper but Steven became despondent on hearing the ex-proprietor broadcasting how he had tricked him and was himself opening a similar business on the same street.
Steven’s wife mentioned the bad news to Mazy Gottalot, a wealthy spinster, and friend, who owned that property.
It came as a pleasant surprise when Steven learned Mazy Gottalot had stipulated this house could not be opened as a shop.
