The atmosphere grew still as he entered the room. All eyes were on him, where did he come from ? Or how did he get here was the question on each faces. The village lawyers immediately assembled as this was a cause for their concern. “There is no polished look to his face,” said one of them; “and to think they allowed a beggar at this prestigious banquet,”said the other. Another lady passing by whispered, ” I heard he won the lotto,” and then the village lawyers all snickered sarcastically “So that’s why he thought he was allowed here with the rest of us,” said one of the ladies in the group.
