No Matter What! Stealing is Bad!

Something is wrong. They’re not letting me board the flight. I see it. It’s right there! All the other passengers have boarded, one of my friends too. Is it because I was late? It was just 10 minutes! I asked an employee but he was so nervous he couldn’t answer properly. He said there is some maintenance issue, we’ll let you know but till then stay here.

Oh my god! They know! Their camera must’ve caught me stealing that book from the bookstore. It was $45.99! For a book!

Now what?

An Indigo ground staff employee is coming towards me. What should I do! And why they’re not flying? Obviously, they are not going to let me on board, a thief. Oh! What have I done?

“I’m sorry ma’am. You cannot board this flight.”

“umm… Okay.”

“Actually, we got some Intel that some terrorists are on the flight. When we confronted them, they took out their guns which they’ve hidden on the plane itself. The plane has been hijacked.”

  5. It’s great how her conscience is getting to her for stealing the book, but then it turns out it is in her favor that she doesn’t board that plane. Great story!

    1. Thanks! After I wrote it, I realised I just saved a thief which should not be the moral of the story. Hence, the title. πŸ˜…
