Michelle left the house to meet up with several friends at the shopping center. She skipped along the path, whistling a tune as she made her way there. They were meeting first for lunch. Michelle suggested that they had pizza for lunch and everyone cheered in agreement. Pizza was her favorite food. She especially loved eating the melted cheese on top of it. It would be a delicious and satisfying lunch.

Once everyone had filled their stomachs, they went to the cinema that was located on the top floor. There was a comedy screening and it was a unanimous decision to watch that. Despite just having had lunch, Michelle enjoyed munching on popcorn while watching movies. She shared a box with her friend. The movie was hilarious and all of them enjoyed it. At certain scenes, Michelle even laughed until she teared. When the movie was over, they were still talking about the funny scenes and laughing about them.

Michelle and her friends then went their separate ways to go home. When Michelle arrived home, she fished in her bag for the house keys. They were missing. She frowned and poured out all the contents of her bag onto the ground. Then, she sieved through them but still, the keys were nowhere to be found ! She must have left them in the house when she went out. To make things worse, her parents were both at work and would not be home for another two hours. She went over to her neighbor's house, thinking that if they were home, she could wait for her parents there. Unfortunately, her neighbors were out too.

With a sigh, Michelle went downstairs to look for a public telephone to call her mother. She explained her situation to her mother and her mother advised her to wait at the void deck for her. Michelle had no choice but to do just that. Luckily, Michelle was someone with the habit of carrying a story book with her everywhere she went. she went downstairs to read her book while waiting for her mother to return from work.

After that day, Michelle learnt her lesson. Her mother then attached her house keys to a lanyard so that it could be hung around Michelle's neck. Hopefully, in this way, Michelle would not forget her keys again.
