Rank 5 Out of 10
One day, on a bright summer morning, I was going to the shop at the end of the road to buy some groceries. As I was humming happily due to the wonderful weather, I suddenly saw the person I despised the most, Farah.
She was my eldest aunt’s youngest daughter. I had never liked her She was so bossy and such a braggart. I didn’t even try to look at her.
Soon I reached the grocery shop. I picked the things I required and gave the shopkeeper the money. As the shop-keeper was returning my change, I looked around me. I was horrified by what I saw next. A black saloon suddenly loomed up out of nowhere and a man inside grabbed Farah. Then the car door closed and the car sped away. For a moment I was thunderstruck. Kidnapping in broad daylight??!!!
The shop-keeper was calling my name to return my change. I quickly pocketed it and then rubbed my hands in glee. “Ah! Serves that wretch right!” I thought as I headed back home.
On my way, I happened to glance at a poster stuck on to the smeared wall of a vacant house. It read,
Always help each other, so that if by chance you are in need of any kind of help, others would be sure to help you.”
After reading this message, all the way home, my guilty conscience was telling me that I should have done something about the kidnapping, not only because she was my cousin but also because she was a person in need of my help.
By the time I reached home, I had made up my mind. I quickly found my parents and told them the whole story. As soon as my father heard it, he rung the police and told them the whole story, including the license number of the car which I had happened to look at and remember.
After that, we waited anxiously for some good news. Suddenly our door bell rang. I ran to open the door and when I opened it, I saw my cousin standing beside the Inspector. I hugged Farah tightly. She also hugged me back. The police inspector appreciated my quick observation, memory and reaction. He told us that they had tracked down gang on a country road and that they were now on their way to prison. We thanked Allah and Farah and I apologized to each other for our mean and inexcusable behavior and vowed never to have bad feelings for each other again. After that, we were firm friends forever!
