I moved my fingers in the leather pocket and snatched the wallet steadily.

    1. It takes a lot of courage to steal someone’s belongings. The bad kind of courage which often outruns the fear of getting caught. Some people make a living out of it and it’s beyond my understanding how and why they do it.

      Thank you so much for your lovely words!


    1. I know! 😦 I also find a lot of issues hidden in this scenario with these people, because they are often victims of extreme poverty or neglect. It’s their way of living, even though it’s the wrong way to make a living. I don’t think they are ever happy. 😦
