"A Wicked Boy." Anton Chekhov.

One-minute review: Two young lovers are spied on by her brother, who insists on being given things or he will tell her parents. The cost of these things grows until it’s a watch he wants. The situation is resolved when the young man proposes, the young girl accepts, all is agreed on with the parents and then both the young lovers find the wicked boy and pull him up by his ears, the young man on one side, the young girl, the wicked boy’s sister, on the other.
