Daily Prompt: Stranger

One afternoon, 

A stranger had a garage sale.

He was selling four books for a dollar and hollered out lower prices if we even gave any object a look.

“Five dollars!”

He screamed as my friend, B, took a sit.

I couldn’t resist the temptation.

Five dollars for this beautiful creation?

And the excitement nearly tripled when he told us the kicker:

“It pulls out into a bed…”

Sold.

Carried home to the pavement outside the apartment by the bar.

It was a rather far walk.

People talked like we were crazy when we lazily set up camp on the corner.

We looked like a terrible replica of the “Friends” intro…

But it didn’t matter,

Rather,

We were too happy to even notice and it was all because a stranger gave us a couch for five dollars.
