Forced To Steal

My girl friend was in a very big problem in April this year she had been sent out of school because of fees.I tried as much as i could to help but everything i did could feel this weight or the burden that i was feeling and so they just ignored me One all seemed not to the bear any fruits.I stealthily walked to my parents bedroom looked into my mother hand begs and found eight thousand shilling .i took the money and send to my girl friend who paid her fees and reported back to school Back at home i kept so quite as if nothing had happened in fact i was so quick to suggest that perhaps my mother might have dropped the money
