She had accompanied her mother that day and the lady of the house had asked her to sit in the veranda, till her mother finished her work. When she saw a biscuit packet lying in the corner, she was tempted.

The landlady decided to walk Inc that minute and the girl froze right there Fury danced in the lady's eyes for a minute. She suddenly smiled" Have it. I meant to give it to you, but couldn't find it" The girl are the entire packet in a minute. It was the sweetest biscuit she had eaten.
