Girl Who Is In Need

One day my parent was not their at home. They leaved I alone with our young sibling. When it was at 12 noon,the time of lunch hour. I had somebody outside the door knocking. Without weasting even a fraction at a minute I go out to see who is she/he. When I get out of the house I meet that she is a lady with wonders which if you could see you could even sympathize as yourself. Fast I ask his name and what she need from our home. The girl told me all the story about her life that she had no mother and his father used to beat him and I welcome him and take him to school. The girl was very bright and know she is in school class eight.
