While Sister inherits the mansion, Brother receives only a country cottage behind the estate and discovers a hidden floor.

Linda and Kevin were the heirs of their father’s substantial wealth. Following their father’s d=eath, it was discovered that he had left their mansion to Linda, while Kevin was given an abandoned house nearby with a hidden room that he was supposed to view. So Linda and Kevin sat at the lawyer’s office. It was time for the will to be read and to learn what he had left each of them!

William Dawson, their father, was a successful businessman. Through the years, he remained close to Linda and Kevin, but only had a genuine relationship with his son since they shared interests in sports, eating, and travel. Linda, on the other hand, was always trying to satisfy her father and win his love. She didn’t try to connect with him and simply talked to him about business.

Linda hoped that by demonstrating to her father that she was a capable businesswoman, he would trust her with his estate. She hoped that by demonstrating her competence, he would commit his business to her rather than Kevin. Kevin, on the other hand, was an intellectual and outspoken guy who, like Linda, always tried to please her father. He and his father would sneak in a bit of business conversation whenever they wanted to bond over their passions and hobbies.

As a result, William began to value Kevin’s opinions, which came across as honest and sound. When William’s health began to deteriorate, he made the decision to sell the majority of his company to a larger conglomerate. He made sure that Linda and Kevin had an equal number of shares so that they could continue to serve on the board of directors of the company. He also urged his kid to contribute his money to a number of local cancer groups that help people like him.

Kevin happily obliged and made donations in his father’s name. Thus, In his will, William didn’t need to worry about dividing his business and money between his children. He only needed to split his remaining properties. The lawyer got to work and quickly read the will which stated: “Mr. Dawson wishes to leave his two-story estate and all its contents to Ms. Linda Dawson, while Mr. Kevin Dawson will receive his country home behind the estate and all its contents. Nothing follows.”

“What about dad’s money? Where will it all go?” Linda asked the lawyer. “He donated the remainder of his money to charity. This is all that’s left in his will,” he disclosed. “Why wouldn’t he? He can do whatever he wants with his money. He’s worked hard for it,” Kevin replied. Linda glared at her brother before realizing she still won. “Whatever. It’s still clear how differently dad loved us both. He left you with a trashy home while I inherited the mansion. Loser.”

Linda walked out of the lawyer’s office without a second glance. Meanwhile, Kevin stayed to thank the attorney for all the services he gave his late father. The next day, he decided to visit the old country home his father left him. He knew his sister would kick him out of the mansion, so he decided to renovate the country home and live there. While scouting the house for what needed significant repairs, he discovered a hatch that led to an underground floor.

When he opened it, he saw a note on the steps leading to a room and it read: “Son, I hope you make use of what you’re about to see in here.” Kevin made his way downstairs and was surprised to see all the things his father meant for him to find. Inside the vast room, there were rows of modern furniture covered in plastic, a table filled with expensive diamond and gold jewelry and art collectibles, and expensive designer paintings lined up in a row right beside the table.

After he lifted one of the collectibles, he noticed a sealed envelope from his father. It read: “Son, I’ve always wanted to repair this house because it was your grandmother’s. However, I never got to do it because of how busy I was. Do it, son. I hope you live a wonderful life here with the people you love. I left you some money on the chest below this table, and should you ever need more money, these pieces of jewelry, collectibles, and paintings are worth millions.

I love you, son. Live a good life. Dad.”Indeed, Kevin found a chest filled with cash under the table. It looked to be over a hundred thousand dollars. “Oh, dad,” Kevin said to himself. “You prepared all of this before you asked me to donate your money to charity,” he realized with a smile on his face. Kevin asked Linda to give him a week to pack up and move out of the house. She obliged, thinking he had nowhere to go. “Poor brother.

Dad didn’t even think about giving you a nice place to live,” she said, mocking him. “Feel free to take whatever’s in your room. You’ll need it in your new shack.” Little did she know, Kevin received a lot more than she did. Despite that, the monetary value of what he received was not what mattered. It was the fact that their dad took time and effort to prepare the country home and its contents for him.

Kevin made repairs to his house and continued to work hard. He met a beautiful lady who became his wife, and they bore lovely children. In the end, he passed on the precious things he received from his father to the next generation, hoping it taught them to value family. Share this story with your loved ones.
