The Estate (Pt1)
The car pulled to a stop, the crunching of gravel beneath the wheels ceased, the looming manor which had filled the windscreen as they had approached now filled the entire view on the right hand side, the sun blocked from view the shadow cast over them. The Simpson’s stepped from the car and looked up, they all looked at the Manor, they had seen it before, they had seen it this close before but its size was still awe inspiring. Mr Burns had invited them here for the week, yes for the week, Homer didn’t know why, he suspected a promotion, but that was Homer. He had had a little bit of a spring in his step when he had found out, when burns had invited him to the office, as he had left after the short talk, well the talk burns had given he had said nothing apart from “Yes sir” in agreement to the offer. He had suspected the promotion then as he closed the door behind him, especially with the look on Smithers face, one of shock when the offer had been made, obviously he had known nothing about it either.
