The 20 dollar bill
I was walking to school and that's how this story started. I was as late as every day and I was so angry. My mom goes to work in the morning and I have to take care of my little sister. She is so slow. It tales her an hour to finish breakfast and once she is done with that it takes her five minutes to brush her hair and seven minutes to brush her teeth and then ten minutes to get dressed and then it is a seven minute walk to school, so all and all I'm always late for school. But just today as I was walking along to my school ( not my sister's school which is pre school.) I found a 20 dollar bill. I kept it. But as I reached school a girl with dazzling blue eyes and dark brown hair pulled into braids came through a crowd of shouting girls. " I've checked everyone but nobody has a 20 dollar bill. I was walking to school and it must have slipped out of my pocket. Did you by any chance find one?" the girl asked dully. As I had said I did find her 20 dollar bill. But I said I hadn't found her 20 dollar bill. As I said that she looked so sad, as if about to cry any minute. I then wanted to say I did find it but I knew I couldn't do that, I didn't have the courage. The next day I was so sad about what I had done my sister was was the one waiting. I was about to leave the house but I ran back up the stairs. I wrote a note to the girl. It sounded something like this- I'm sorry I didn't tell you this but I found your 20 dollar bill. I found it yesterday and I didn't tell you I had it. Then I grabbed the 20 dollar bill and went down the stairs. As I reached school I found the girl sitting in line looking even more sad than the day before. I gave her the note and money. She read the note and then she looked at me. A smile spread across her face. " Thanks." she said. " You're welcome." I said.
