A take of 5 brothers

20 July 2014, 17:18

Five brothers lived in a house that has been in their family for generations. They had their ups and downs yet managed to live together in the same house as their forefathers before them.

 The brothers’ were not happy with the decision of the Town Council but had no money to appoint a lawyer to oppose this decision.

The family moved in to the brothers’ house and became very comfortable.  Over the years the family and the brothers had conflicts upon conflicts. This caused many domestic disturbances where the cops had to be called out from time to time.

During these domestic disputes the family would punish the brothers by cutting off access to parts of the house. It reached a point where the brothers were all confined to live in the bathroom at the back of the house.

Despite pressure from people in the neighbourhood, The family, the Town Council and the City Council did little to address the injustices. In present day, intense fighting broke out in the house. 

Certain neighbours and councillors are throwing a blind eye. Others support the family of the house with food and weapons to fight the brothers and also lend their full support for the cause of the family and their right to exist in that house.

This story is purely fictional; however, I cannot understand why or how a house was simply given to another family. I also do not understand why this family will get backing and support from others in this hostile “house grab”.
