The Purchase

Gillen and Jarvis walked down Main Street, hoping to find a building to purchase. Having a business on Main meant having lots of money and being very successful; everybody knew that. That was why all of the finer businesses were situated on that street.
“Keep your eyes peeled, Jarvis. This could be the beginning of our wealthy lives, lad.”
“Do we even have planned as to what we will be doing yet?”
“I was thinking,” Gillen said with a gleam in his sparkling eyes, “that we do something of the sort like keeping with the letter press, but then also keeping what we press to sell as a place to purchase texts.”
“Alright, that does sound reasonable. Will we have enough money, though?”
“It all depends really on how much the vacant building will cost us.”
Jarvis nodded.
“Of course.”
So they continued all throughout Main Street, but to their disappointment, returned to their homes that night without a bit of luck, in discovering a place for their business. They had arranged then that in the morning, they should start looking on Teller Court for some place that would be reasonable for them. It was the next best street, and then after that was Garland Street.
“Well Jarvis, here begins another day. Let us hope it goes well.”
“You mean better than yesterday?”
“Lads, hang on a second there!”
The two turned around to find Cornelius jogging down the street; which was a frightful sight seeing as to his height, and the though of him not being able to stop in time. Jarvis would hate for his body to run him over flat.
“Mornin’ to you Cornelius!” Gillen called.
“What is it that you need?”
“Well I was just wondering what our plans for our business are?”
“Well first we must purchase some place to establish our business of course.”
Cornelius waved that away.
“Never mind that, I already purchased a place on Main Street.”
“Yeah, is there something wrong with that?” Cornelius asked a little frightened. “Because I spent a good sum of money on it.”
“Cornelius, that’s wonderful!” Jarvis blurted. “That’s just wonderful.”
“Well then, allow me to return to my original question. What is it we’ll be doing, because I figure I should order our materials now, seeing is how our facility will be available to us in one week.”
“One week! We better get started indeed!”
