When three college roommates moved into a new slightly bigger flat, they went out and bought the only couch that would fit in their tiny lounge, but they weren’t expecting anything more than getting off the floor and chilling in front of the tv. Unknown to the trio there was something hiding inside that would change their lives forever.
The trio soon learned that living away from home would be more difficult in some ways. For instance, their lounge was so small that they simply couldn’t find a sofa small enough to fit in it. Yet large enough to fit them all, it was an annoying problem that led to some fun excursions to nearby charity shops.
There were few options as it was, and the friends finally had to sell on a smelly old couch just because it was the right dimensions. Pleased with finding something that would work, they joyfully loved the piece of furniture homeward, an old couch was better than no couch at all, while settling down in the new sofa, reese work, oven, collie, gwasty and lara russo noticed something strange about the couch they couldn’t put Their finger on just what it was, though it wasn’t the best smelling thing in the world nor to the most comfortable, but they had bought it anyway.
For what reason they would still find out two months passed since buying the ratty old sofa at the salvation army, but the smelly old couch was going to start presenting a huge problem very soon.
No one could get comfortable on the twenty dollar couch and they took it in turns to sit in the lumpy spot until one day, ree stuck his hand down the side of the couch and screen both girls jumped but thought that he had simply gotten a pinch From the sleeper couch springs and they soon quiet down after the funny incident and some giggling.
They continue with their saturday night movie watching never knowing they were sitting atop a misery far bigger than any of them could have imagined. Rhys, however, was thinking about what had caught his hand down in the depths of the sofa it hadn’t felt like metal hinges.
It felt more like something was stuck underneath the upholstery of the couch itself, something stuck inside. He waited to ask the girls if they had noticed something odd about their thrift store couch the next day. He brought it up with his roommates.
He usually got stuck on the lumpy side, even though they said they would alternate well now they could all have a chance reset of the girls sit here and feel that do you feel it i’m sure, that’s not how it’s meant to be. Each girl stuck her hand down the side and against the fitted cushion, and they felt it a large and firm, yet malleable object.
That was definitely not part of the original couch design was even more obvious. Once someone told you where to feel now, everyone was intrigued. So they decided to turn the couch into its sleep form and see what could have gotten wedged up into the cushion that way after assembling the sleeper bed. They realize that there was no possible way. Anything got up there by mistake, whatever it was wasn’t under the seams perplexed, they all now needed to know what was inside and in the rush of excitement.
Reece grabbed a kitchen knife and plunged it into the couch near the bulgy part. The girls, spurred on by his crazy antics, pulled at the couch covering and out slipped a wad of bubble, wrap reece picked up the large wad and looked inside.
Under the bubble Wrap was a plastic envelope containing seven hundred dollar and twenty dollar bills. He looked up at the girls who had stopped counted and they needed to know if there was more digging through the everything and were staring at him in disbelief. They gathered ronda insides of the couch yielded a whopping forty thousand dollars in cash.
All of it neatly placed in envelopes and caringly wrapped in bubble wrap, but why was there money in an old dusty couch who would feel the need to hide their money away like this could be something more sinister than they suspected?
Everyone dreams that they will one day truly find a jackpot fortune in an unsuspecting item, a hidden treasure.
The trio had already started daydreaming about what they would spend the loot on student loans were top of the list followed by traveling around the world. Reece even said i would have bought my mom a new car. What she drives is a piece of junk and i really wanted to surprise her with a brand new car.
Their answer came toward the end of their search. A small note, tucked inside one of the last envelopes, held the name of a woman, their hearts all sank simultaneously.
They had a feeling they wouldn’t be holding onto their treasure. For long. We had a lot of moral discussions about the money. We all agreed that we had to bring the money back to whoever it belonged to. It’s their money. We didn’t earn it lara said.
None of us would have felt right. Keeping someone else’s heart earned cash. They all agreed to find the mysterious lady who had hidden a small fortune in a sofa after a short while tracking down the previous owners, gave the number ring, hopefully to give some woman good news. He recounts, unlike i found something that i think is yours and she’s like what and i’m like. I found a couch and then she’s like.
Oh my god. I left a lot of money in that couch. Unbelievable as that is what came next is even better. The three almost rich college students jumped into a car to deliver the money back to this little old lady and when they got there, all the money in the world couldn’t have made them feel better for what they had done. We all agreed that we had to bring the money back to whoever it belonged to lara said it’s their money.
We didn’t earn it. The old woman began to tell her story. I’ve been keeping my savings and my husband’s savings in that couch for 30 years after he died. I went in for back surgery what happened next gutted her emotionally thinking she was doing her mother, a favor. The woman’s daughter sold the old couch, which the woman slept on and replaced it with a new bed: reese werkhoven collie gwasti and lara russo.
The three roommates, who became famous for their discovery and gesture of selflessness, generosity and kindness, are people that we need more of in this world.
They are the people we should all strive to be like. After all, if it had been your couch and wad of cash, wouldn’t you want it back? It seems like a stroke of fate that these three roommates were destined to buy that couch and they said they’re lucky they could help. We almost didn’t pick that couch lara said it’s pretty ugly and smells, but it was the only couch that fit the right dimensions for our living room.
