8. Chapter Eight

And so everything was ready, Fleur and Sam always fed their families from this happiness cake and now Thomas and Alanzo could too give these soup and hot chocolate to their fathers and see if things work out.

The other day was there, Fleur and Sam were waiting for the others, their fingers crossed. Until they finally heard a loud voice shouting,

“It worked, it worked!” It was both Thomas and Alanzo's voices. Alanzo wasn't late.

They got in running and both hugged Sam tightly, they hugged Fleur next, everyone’s eyes were a bit teary now.

“Look, Sam … you really are the best!” Alanzo said.

“Yeah!! you’re like – I can’t find the right words! God! I can’t even describe how happy I am!” He said.

And this way Sam could use his talent to help other people. And that made him happy, helping people. 




After about ten years of working really hard and discovering every emotion, Sam could do almost everything. He used his food for psychiatric treatment. Movies makers were just in love with this idea, they now could make great movies with some real emotions not just people acting! Everything would be better. Actors liked this idea too and somehow they managed to get Sam to sell them some.

His friends however, didn't like the idea, neither did his mother –who was really normal now, not depressed or anything-  But it brought Sam so much money that he got greedy for more money. And also, he thought that the idea was okay, it was harmless and it gave him money, why was it such a bad idea anyway? 

Some other movie makers didn't like this idea. They felt that now that everyone had these emotions nothing was called acting and that movies weren't honest. They said in articles,


Filming movies using the what-we-call "fake emotions" invented by the famous chef, Sam Moody is just like filming reality shows. Entertaining, but fake.

Actors who use these fake emotions are liars, they don't show their real talents and that's not how filming is supposed to be. There has to be acting, not just eating stuff that could make you happy, or sad, or whatever the movie needed.


They even said many other things, criticizing Sam and his work. This caused Sam a problem, a big one that actually required him to go to the court of law and just do his best to keep this emotions selling thing going. But that didn't happen, the movie makers won the case and it let Sam lose a good amount of his money, but he was still rich. What was worse, he lost his "fake emotions" selling and that was really bad for him. They said in the court that Sam wasn't allowed to use the same ingredients, which -as they thought- was the secret of making these fake emotions.

Sam got so depressed and now had to stop the best thing he could make; emotions. So he just baked the same cake without chocolate, the same soup without tears and so on.. Sam no longer made emotions, his friends always tried to support him, to tell him that this wasn't the end, that he had to keep on making some other emotions using some other ingredients, that it would technically be legal, but he refused saying that the secret was in his ingredients.
