It was a dark, stormy November night. As dark as coal. Lalitha was home alone drinking coffee and watching TV. Not long after she started watching, there was a man at her door. He knocked on the door the door. Lalitha paused the show she was watching and sprinted up the stairs and peered out the window above the door. Outside was a man in jeans, a black hoodie, a black mask, large sack and a gun. In his hands.
Moving on, the man who was waiting outside the door pulled out a bobby pin and inserted it into the keyhole of the door. It opened. Lalitha sprinted to the landline phone and called 911. She spoke to the police clearly and calmly. The next minute the man was examining the grand house and muttered, "These careless fools must be rich." then slid his hand across the smooth stair railings.
"Hello? Anybody in here? I'm just a visitor. Come down and help me to a cup of coffee. Oooh. What show are you watching? Grey's Anatomy. Interesting." the man spoke innocently. No one emerged. The man didn't care. He just began hunting for money. Without effort, he found a random stack of 100 dollar bills and stuffed them into his bag. He wasn't even dying of shame!
Falling action / Resolution
The man continued searching for money until he decided his sack was heavy enough. Lalitha was hiding in her dark bathroom and decided the man had left, so she crept out of her bathroom and headed for the landline phone to call the cops, but before she realized, the man saw her heading out. "Well looks like I don't have to order anything for dinner tonight," the man exclaimed. Lalitha gulped in fright and darted for the front door.
A few minutes later, the police arrived and the man quickly hid in a tight spot fortunately for his skinny-like body it wasn't uncomfortable. Sadly, yes Lalitha was shoved into the rather massive sack. The good news is that the man's hiding spot was very visible and so the cops found him, but that was just a dummy, for the man inched to the back door and grabbed the handle but was grabbed by a cop (who spotted the man) and was whisked into the police car.
A lesson learned is that Lalitha should always remind her parents to turn on the alarm system before leaving the house. Or else, they would have to face another crisis of theft and kidnapping. life is hard. It's harder if you're careless. So the story ends with Lalitha watching TV in a stormy, cold November night once again interrupted by a knock on the back door, but this time it wasn't the man. It was a different man.
