“I thought we’d never come back from that one.”
Harry was known for his evil ways, once he wanted to try how it feels to do something really outrageous, he did things to feel important and in his heart he was sure, he’d never get caught.
One day he visited his classmate Priscilla’s house. He made sure no one was at home, he found out Priscilla’s Mom always left the back door open. He went in through the back door, suddenly he felt extremely hungry,he quickly went to the kitchen to see if there was any food he could eat. He was lucky Mrs. Baker was having some company that day, she did part of her cooking in the morning, she baked a cake for dessert and left it on the table to cool. Harry’s mouth was watering at the sight of the delicious cake.
The fact he was not looking at his mom’s dessert but someone else’s completely slipped his mind, he took out a plate and helped himself to a large piece of the un-iced cake. He felt full but was thirsty so he poured a glass of water, after drinking it, he left it in the sink.
He took a short cut to go home, while walking along he started humming a tune in his off beat voice: “I ate a piece of cake so delicious and soft, I wish I carried another piece to my lovely loft!”
Priscilla happened to walk on the same path, she looked at him and said: “Please don’t sing with your hideous voice, its totally unbecoming!”
Harry ignored her and walked straight home.
Next day Harry invited his friend Jason to accompany him he felt quite brave. He told Jason about the back door which was unlocked the last time he was there. This time it was locked , Harry told Jason to wait while he looks for a way to get in, luckily the kitchen window was open, he told Jason to wait outside the back door, which he’d open for his friend once he gets in through the window to the kitchen.
He entered the kitchen through the window it was not easy, but nothing is easy in life you have to strive to get what you want, he mumbled.He quickly went to the back door and opened it for Jason to come in.
The plan was to eat what they could and take some home,good plan isn’t it, they looked at each other with a broad smile 🙂
The kitchen table was full of varieties of food, they were unable to choose which one they should try first and then make up their mind which smell was more inviting, is it on the left or on the right. While they were thinking, they heard a click,followed by a bark and footsteps. Both Harry and Jason made a quick run for the back door, luckily no one was there and they were able to get out safely. Harry was breathing heavily, the thought that they were nearly caught made him more nervous.
Jason my dear he said : “I thought we’d never come back from that one!”
