The two cottages were both owned by the Tuvaches and Vallins families. They both were enjoying a nice pot roast outside of a beach resort.
One day, one random couple came to the cottages and asks if the wife could play with the kids and they allowed her to. But, she kept returning to play with the kids until she finally asked them if she could keep the youngest one.
But, the family immediately said no to her and the woman started to cry and beg about their decision. Finally, the husband comes in and explains the real reason why they've been coming here.
Since the two familes were poor, the married couple bribes them with money in exchange for their children. The Tuvaches gives their youngest one away to them and regrets their proposal.
