Finish the story that begins with: “The A&B Building was made entirely from driftwood.”

The A&B Building was made entirely from driftwood. At least the man with the conch-shell believed it to be so.

You can live here and find me the gold. He told the jinn in the conch-shell.

You are sure this place has no material from solid terrain.

That is what the Gold fraternity claims.

All right, I shall check for myself and reward you accordingly.

Thank you, sir.

Now, blow into the conch-shell.

People in the vicinity wondered at the loud and long OOOOOOOOOmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, though no source for it could be visualized.

The man waited for the jinn. He came back soon and handed the man a nugget and vanished along with the conch shell.
I wish to sell this nugget.

OK, let me just check the gold content.

Well, how much gold does it contain?

Less than 1 percent.
