"Get up boy and give me my pocketbook back! You need a good wash and a lesson for putting yourself in contact with me."
It's a calm routinely night for Mrs. Luella Bates Washington Jones and at 11 PM the least she expects is someone trying to rob her. And what an imbecile he was trying to do just that.
This is the kindest an adult has ever shown me, I wonder how she trusts me so close to her belongings. The door is wide open and she does not expect em to run?
Mrs. Luella realizes exactly what this teenage boy needs, a lesson. She knows a thing about situations like this and she chooses to take him under her wing. With that thought in her mind, she gives him a yelling and drags him to her home.
"Now young boy, with stolen money your feet will hold the devil's shoes. I have done what you have when I was young and I regret it. Next time, just ask and with this money promise to never, ever try to do such filthy actions as this."
She drags him in a half nelson along the road to her house. With only kind intent, she makes sure he is coming along with her. The boy now relaxed in her hold, does not realize what is to become of him.
"Thank You M'am"
The young boy, Roger sits down confused in her small kitchenette. With her purse so close and her back to him, cooking some beans and ham, he is confused. Mrs.Luella a woman he does not know, is feeding him, gave him a fresh face, and after trying to steal from her.
After a small dinner, Mrs. Luella sits down and gives him a small, and simple talking to. He tells her all he wants are some blue suede shoes and that's why he had wanted her pocketbook.
Kindness and such vast trust had been shown to Roger. After such vile actions that he had shown Mrs. Luella, this is what she done. This was unbelievable for Roger. He had the money for his blue suede shoes and all he could do is say three simple words to the woman.
