A Possible Buyout

Chapter Thirteen: Combined Forces
It took me two days to get the full story about the recent late night meeting at the fairy circle. Not only were there sock fairies in attendance, but they had also invited their gnome friends for indispensable advice. Gnomes are earth spirits who work with fairies to protect earth's treasures. Certainly socks, a needed accessory in this climate, would come under the category:Earth's Treasures.
Gnomes are peaceful beings who tend to live in hilly meadows and rocky woodlands. Because of their love for animals, all creatures of the forest are their friends. They are guardians and protectors who are willing to help others at any time. You also need to know that gnomes love gems and jewelry. They are considered by many to be one of the best gem cutters in existence. Which brings me to the point that over time their accumulated wealth has been in gem stones. After lengthy discussion it became clear that their sock fairy friends needed financial as well as moral support. A buyout plan to obtain the Sock Mart was hatched. This would would then give the gnomes and sock fairies complete control. Since the weekend business brought in most of the week's revenue it was agreed they all had to move quickly so a Venture Capital Company was formed. Two representatives from the sock fairy and gnome groups were elected. It is my understanding that tomorrow their proposal will be presented to the Sock Mart owners.
As always I will keep you updated on ongoing developments.
