To that she replied that she wanted the house so bad that she was ready to lower the divorce settlement if he was willing to give her the house back.
Jake, being the naive person, agreed to this, thinking that finally luck started to follow him, so he made a deal with his wife and sold her back the house for 1/10 of it’s actual worth.
Jake only had one requirement – that the papers would be signed the same day. Of course, this was not an issue for Edith and the job was done within one hour.
At the end, a week later, Edith got her house back, and Jake and his new lover pleasantly watched the movers take their things out of the house. They took the curtain rods too.
