Tehreem decided to apply to a school as a helper but she didn’t get a job. When she had almost given up hope, she saw a competition that would give ten thousand dollars to the person who won. All she had to do was eat a chocolate in front of the judges. It wasn’t any ordinary chocolate. It was really big and was extra sweet and no one was able to do it because it hurt their teeth so much. Tehreem had not tasted sweets since she had gone in grade 2. She remembered its sweet taste and remembered how she had been really fond of sweets. She decided to enter, it wouldn’t cost a penny and if she was lucky enough she might win. So, she entered her name and, surprisingly she came in after 1 person…She saw through the window that he ate five to six bites and left. She saw the chocolate it was bigger than seeing it through the window. Tehreem had been out all morning and hadn’t bothered for breakfast and had no money for lunch. It was five and her stomach was rumbling. She heard someone saying Eat! So she did….It was really tasty especially after a whole day of nothing to eat. She ate it whole and wanted another but she found it rude to ask for another chocolate. The judges were amazed and felt that they should announce her as winner for a month had passed and no one ever won. They announced her as winner gave her a cell phone and told her to get her prize money tomorrow in front of people. She agreed and left. She rushed as fast as she could to her home and did. She couldn’t wait to tell everyone in her home.
When she finally arrived after what seemed like centuries, she found her mother looking outside with a worried expression on her face. She bought her inside and asked her if she wanted to eat something but Tehreem cut her short and said: ‘Mother I won a competition of winning ten thousand dollars. I went to seek a job to a school they had no vacancy I went to seven or eight schools, none had vacancy and when I had given up hope, then my stomach gave a loud rumble. I saw a fair and went there for something to eat then I found this competition and won it! They gave me a cell phone and told me to come to the same place tomorrow as the will set up a stage then, then…………’ Tehreem out of shock and happiness had fainted. Her mother took her to bed and thought of leaving her that way as she looked very tired. Then Tehreem woke up after two and a half hour by a phone ringing. She remembered a dream where she won a competition but could it be a dream? She thought. Then she saw her new phone and she felt happy then suddenly----- Her stomach gave a round RUMBLE! She needed to eat something for sure.
She ate a really heavy dinner and she felt as a huge weight had been lifted from her shoulders. Then her phone rang and a person said: Are you Miss Tehreem?’ ‘Yes’ ‘Ma’am you won a competition today of eating a chocolate which you passed and you will get your prize money tomorrow so come at 12 o’ clock in the Good Dreams Hall’ ‘But sir that is the biggest, and most important hall in the city!’ ‘Yes I am aware. Do come in time.’ ‘Yes sir, I will but sir can I bring my family?’ ‘Sure.’ ‘Bye Sir’ ‘Bye.’
Then, at 11 o’clock Tehreem left her home with her family, everyone in their best clothes. They arrived at five minutes to twelve and entered the great hall. After some minutes a man came and gave a short speech then called Tehreem to the stage. Tehreem did and received her money. Then as a surprise, they had a feast in the hall. They all ate to their full and Tehreem received ten to fifteen boxes full of chocolates. She hurried to the nearest ticket office and bought a ticket to America, two days later. She packed all of her clothes and bought all necessary items to stay comfortably with her father. She left a thousand dollars which after conversion became twenty thousand rupees and tehreem took eight thousand dollars with herself. ` She remembered to be in a plane where she thought only of her father. Then she arrived to the airport and, after collecting her luggage, took a cab and went to a good hotel with two beds, one for her father and one for herself. The next day, Tehreem had ordered breakfast, She saw a newspaper within and a small heading caught her eye………….
