One reason — I was a thief.
Since I was young, I was a lonely girl. I didn’t have any friends, all people ran away from me. I was not happy every day.
‘Oh! A poor girl!’ my classmate said loudly.
‘Her uniform was very dirty …’ the other classmate laughed, pointing at me.
I felt sad; I looked at my uniform and I really really wanted to buy a new one.
One day after school, I walked alone. I went through the streets. Suddenly, I noticed that the stationer was on sales and everything was half-priced.
‘Wow … I can’t believe my eyes!’ I knew that I should buy something cheap for my studies.
‘Ding dong …’ I opened the door and I saw the shopkeeper sleeping.
‘Hello? Can I take a look at those …’ I asked quietly.
‘Can I take a look at those …’ I asked quietly again.
However, no one answered me and I only heard the shopkeeper snoring. She slept and slept, she didn’t know I was there!
At that moment, I suddenly had a heart of greed. I opened the drawer …
‘Wow, a lot of money there! I can buy a new uniform!’ I thought happily, looking at the money.
Then, I looked around. The shopkeeper was still fast asleep.
‘Yes! No one here …’ I thought.
I took out all the money in the drawer and walked lightly to the door.
When I pushed the door open, suddenly, the shopkeeper woke up.
‘You! Poor girl! Stop there!’ the shopkeeper shouted angrily and loudly.
I was very scared. I ran out fast, as fast as a deer running for its life. I was very scared.
‘Little girl, stop!’ two policemen shouted, running at me …
Finally, the policemen caught me and I had to return the money to the shopkeeper.
And then I go to prison. That’s where I am now.
I feel very regretful.
