Fiction: Open

Lillie McFerrin Writes

Emily was going out with her friend Sally to the supermarket to buy some food, her mother told her not to open her wallet in front of strangers, she said, “You never know who is watching.”

Okay mom she said, “I will remember, but please do not forget I am a grownup.”

The two friends were on their way to the market, as they were approaching their destination, a young man stopped them, “Miss can I have a  quarter to put in the meter I don’t have change, I do not want to get a ticket,”  he said.

Emily immediately opened her wallet to look for a quarter, her wallet was full of cash, the young man noticed it,  she gave him the coin and hurried to the market, the  man followed them, when they reached the corner he pushed Emily, who lost her balance and fell on the ground and her wallet went flying on the pavement, Sally came to her aid to make sure she did not hurt  herself.

Without wasting any time the man grabbed the wallet, looked at  both sides of the street and took off!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this story. It’s good that Emily or Sally were not injured. The wallet and its contents can be replaced.

    All good wishes,

    robert
