Jennifer Hills had always been a showy person. She was rich and she wanted
everyone to notice her wealth. She always wore a gold bracelet around her slim
wrist. She was proud when relatives or friends made comments on her jewelry.
One day, she walked out of the goldsmiths shop, clutching a bag. She was pleased
with herself as she now had another ruby ring to show her friends. They would be
so surprised. Jennifer was so caught up with
her thoughts that she did not notice that there were two men watching her. They
were cunning people. They had been watching Jennifer for two weeks now.
The masked robbers jumped at their chance
to corner Jennifer when she walked around a corner. One of them grabbed her from
behind and put his rough hand over her mouth to stop her screams. The other held
a gun in his hand. Jennifer closed her eyes. She thought she would surely die.
Just as suddenly as they appeared, they disappeared, taking her bag.
She had lost her precious ruby ring. She was so terrified and sad that she
could not help crying. She would now have to wait to see what the police could
do about it.
