It was a few years ago, in our small
village in the North of England. We were in winter and blizzards were
One day, we were drinking a cup of tea
with my parents in front of the hearth. We were talking for a long
time when my mother realized we needed to go to the supermarket for
As mentioned we were in winter, it was
freezing cold, so no way to get out from the house.
The supermarket were about 20 minutes
from our house by walking. I was 20 years old at the time, and my
parents were old. therefore I decided to go.
I took my winter jacket, my hat, my
scarf, my gloves and my boots, then left the house.

woman. The house was disorderly, the circumstances looked like a
burglary. The man clearly stole something valuable. I hastily took my
mobile phone out of my pocket and called the police.
The woman was finally saved, thus I
could go to finish my groceries.
