Once upon a time, even now, there was a woman who was the boss of the whole office complex. She mostly had women working for her, since they designed jewelry for mass production. Her name was Queenna. Because she thought they didn't really care about jewelry, she had three males who went to her office every day to show her the newest designs. These three were her closest assistants. The eldest was called "First" by Queenna and the two next assistants were called "Second" and "Third."
One day, Queenna showed these three her favorite jewelry design of all time. She kept in a locked box on her desk, but was so proud of it, she couldn't wait to show someone, and she trusted her assistants. However, that was her first mistake.
As soon as he saw the design, First went to a rival jeweler and showed their boss, Kingla, how he could make it and still call it new and his own design. Kingla had female assistants called "Do," "Don't" and "Maybe." He decided to let Do see the design and make something similar. Don't and Maybe saw it, too, because Do couldn't resist boasting about it.
Kingla didn't mind, as long as Queenna never found out. But of course, First and Do were discovered by their bosses because they spoke so loudly of their treachery. First was made to be a janitor, told to clean the basement as long as Queenna remembered what happened to her favorite design. In fact, Queenna sent Second and Third to the basement also, for they'd seen the design as well and were under First in order.
Kingla made a similar design that Queenna couldn't stop, but she could bribe his help by telling them that there would be another favorite for the one who could rescue First, Second or Third from janitorial duties in the basement. First saw Do and hit her with his broom, he was so embarrassed to be seen sweeping. Do hit First back and they're tangled up in fisticuffs to this day, but for one exception. Third took over First's area to clean.
Second was seen by Don't and offered her his broom to help him clean. Don't said "No!" and Second hit him over the head with a dustpan and promised to tell on him if he ever got out of the basement. Don't sat in a semi-comma in a corner Second had to sweep around to this day, but for one exception.
Second cried loudly about his travails and Third hurried to help him. In his path was Maybe, trying to find a new design in the dust in the basement. Third called to her.
"Come on!" he said. "We have to help Second clean the basement! What are you doing, crawling around in the dust?"
Maybe remembered what Kingla said and said, "I'm here because you need help. Do you have another broom?"
"You want to help?" Third said. "Why? We're here because we saw something we weren't supposed to see. Why are you here?"
"My boss sent me to help as much as I can," Maybe said. "Let me help you."
So Third and Maybe swept First and Second's areas for them, and let them fight and cry over their plights. While they did the work, Third fell in love with Maybe, and Maybe with Third. They whistled while they worked, and with every cheerful whistle, more dust disappeared forever from the basement, until it was all sparkling clean.
Then they looked out a tiny window to see a beautiful design for jewelry and decided to share it and make it their new business. The place the design was seen initially was on Maybe's hand when he and Third exchanged vows to marry. The next place the design was seen were in ads in every fashion magazine. Then Third and Maybe left the basement and were married, with First and Second helping, along with Do and Don't.
Queenna married the two, and she and Kingla settled for peace with the new company made from Third and Maybe's design.
And they lived happily ever after.
