Greg is sad and angry because he will probably not make his local basketball team because of his bad grades. He also doesn't want another lecture from his dad so he decides to not go to his house and goes to an old abandon tenement or apartment.
Greg walks into the building and sees a couch and sits on it. He starts to hear noises but doesn't really care because they disappear after a bit. He starts to hear the noises again an then notices a man in front of him.
Greg starts talking with the man and finds out that his name is Lemon Brown. They talk more and more then they here a noise outside and Greg looks through the window and finds three thugs outside of the apartment.
Don't try nothing, cause I got have a razor sharp enough yo cut a week into 9 days
Hey! Rag man We know you in here. What you got under them rags? You got any money?
Greg and Lemon Brown head up the stairs of the apartment. One of the men starts following up the stairs so Lemon blocks the way. Lemon went onto the staircase to face the man and after a while he came back with their flashlight. Greg howls like he's a wolf to scare them off and they run off.
Greg asks if Lemon Brown really does have treasure and Lemon shows him it. Greg is surprised at what he sees because it is only a old newspaper and a harmonica. Lemon tells him it was his son's stuff before he died in the war. Then they look out the window to see if the men are still there.
Greg say goodbye to Lemon Brown and Lemon says that he will watch him to make sure that he gets home safely.
