Frank and Joe ran inside the old building and flopped down in the darkened corner. Both were exhausted from running and the adrenaline was wearing off from their shop lifting. The markets were always busy, and the two boys were starving. They decided to steal bread and fruit from open shelves at the busiest time of day, hoping not to be noticed.

They thought they had accomplished it, when the old marketer they assumed was blind, blew a very loud whistle. Fortunately for the boys, authorities were a block away. By the time they arrived, the boys had melted into the crowd.

Frank and Joe avoided being caught, divided up their spoils and enjoyed a much needed meal. The evidence would never be found.
