“What a pile of useless junk,” exclaimed Mark, twisting his face into an angry frown.
Mary, mesmerised by the objects arranged on the shelves, just stared, wordless.
Mark ranted, “Dad spent days here behind closed doors. Now he’s passed away and we’re expected to clean up all his mess.”
Mary just nodded and waited for the storm to pass.
Mark snorted, “Humph! I won’t have anything to do with it. Just throw it all away and we’ll sell the house.”
Mary waited until her brother had left, then called the Curator at the Museum.
“He finished it! It’s a masterpiece.”
