The littlest con man

Ok, let’s talk logistics. Because obviously you two can’t build a house stronger than a stiff wind.

First, as you can see, this is a small house, so we really only have one option. We’ll need to build you both some houses, and since that’ll take a few days each, you’ll need to stay here for the time being.

And you can bet your wolf-stew-spared rump roasts it’s gonna cost you.

I know neither of you have any money, so don’t whine at me, you swine. I remember back at the home sty you two could barely keep enough in your man-banks to get extra slop. And now that you’ve lost both your houses and got robbed by that damn sore-loser wolf, it’s obvious you’re both broke, or else you wouldn’t have come running to your little brother asking for help.

Back to the topic: How are you going to pay me back for fronting you and showing you how to build a proper house? Well, there’s a few things I can think of, but you’re not likely to like either of them.

First, and this is a given, you’re going to do all the work. But the first house you are going to build will be twice the size of this one. And when it’s done, it’s mine. After you’ve learned how to build a house under my watchful chinny-chin-chin, you’ll be responsible for the second one and you can keep this one.

You’ll need a new chimney, of course.

Second, after all is said and done, and you’re back on your hog feet, you’re going to build me a pool.

Out of your own pockets.

If you don’t like it, straw man, you can try your chances out there right now.

No?

Good. Then we’ve got a deal.

And you’re welcome.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a business associate to go thank for earning me a new house and a pool.
