The Treasure of Lemon Brown
By: Aysha Sumaiya
After Greg left Lemon Brown, he went straight to his apartment. He knocked on his door.
“Who is it” said his father from the living room.
“It's me Greg.”
His dad opened the door and saw it was Greg.
“Where have you been young man? You’re mother and I were worried sick.”
“Well I was just outside chatting with my friend,” Greg replied.
“Do you know what time it is young man.” I got a message from your teacher that you have a test tomorrow.”
“I know that,” said Greg.
“Well if you know that than why aren't you studying,” said his dad.
“I don't need to study, I know everything,” replied Greg.
“Oh you know everything! If you know everything than why do you get D and E in math?”
“I don't know,” said Greg.
“What do you mean you don't know?”
“Hey mom what’s for dinner,” said Greg trying to change the subject.
“Hold on we are no done with this conversation,” said his dad.
“Will you stop it? The kid just came from outside. Let him eat,” said his mother.
“OK, but he is not going outside after school anymore. Until he get that A in math,” said his dad to his mom.
“But I cannot stay home all day and doing nothing.”
“What I said is done and you are going to be doing something, which is math problems,” said his dad to Greg.
Greg ran up stair to his room and slammed the door. He was very angry about it.
“See what you did,” said his mom to his dad.
“What I did was good for him.”
Greg’s mom took the dinner to his room. She knocked and knocked.
“Who is it,” said Greg.
“It is me, your mother.” “I have your dinner with me.”
Greg opened the door and went to his bed throwing a baseball in the air and catching it. She put the dinner on the table and set close to Greg.
“You're dad just wants to help you. He wants you to have a very good life when you grow up. He is not saying these things because he wants you or he doesn't loves you. He loves you very much,” said his mother.
