The Boy and the Stranger ~~~ By: Stephanie Nicolaescu April 2nd 2019 - Period 1
One day, a man passes a beautiful mansion, and stops to think to himself. He happens to be a robber, and ponders of a way to get inside the mansion, and find out what riches it holds.
What a lovely house. It must have some extraordinary things inside. I just need a way to get in...
While trying to evolve a plan, something catches his eye. There was a young child inside the house, but there were no cars parked in he driveway. Suddenly, he had an idea!
There's a little, naive child inside, all alone. I know what to do!
The man approached the house, and rang the doorbell. The little boy approached the door, and questioned the man.
Hi, your parents sent me over. They're running a bit late, so they wanted me to come in and look after you. Could you please open the door?
Uh, hi. Who are you?
Without hesitating, the boy opened the door for a man he'd never seen before, not realizing that by doing this he'd just endangered himself and his family.
Now, I need to go use the bathroom really quickly, but you can just go watch some TV.
Okay Sir. I'll be upstairs in my room.
This is too easy.
While the foolish boy was in his room, probably captivated by his TV, the man made his way around the house taking priceless vases, silverwares, artwork, and such, and carefully placing them into a sack. He was out of the house in the blink of the eye, before the boy or his parents could realize.
