It was a dark shadowy night and I was tired of not having what other kids had, so tonight i'm finally going to get some blue suede shoes even if I have to swipe them.
I sat on the sidewalk waiting for somebody to pass by.
Then I saw a big woman pass by with a purse that looked like it had some valuable things, so I planned to creep up behind her and snatch that purse.
I started to sneak up to the woman and start putting my hand out to grab the purse. I began to start tugging on the purse then SNAP! The strap broke and I stumbled backwards and fell on my back.
The large women picks me up from my shirt then she starts dragging me off like a rag doll down the street to a door then trough me in. I asked , "You gonna take me to jail." She replied, "No! Not with that dirty face I wouldn't take you anywhere."
The large woman had taken to her house and had made me some lime beans and ham. After I finish eating she got up and gave me ten dollars. She told me to go buy me some blue suede shoes. I was shocked that even though i tried to steal her purse she gave me money to buy the shoes. After that day Mrs. Jones compassion and generosity she taught me to never steal and to learn from my mistakes.
