Lost In A Shopping Centre

 

Dewi frantically looked around for her parents. Tears welled up in her eyes as she walked aimlessly around the crowded shopping centre. This was her first time getting separated from her parents and she did not know what to do. Though she felt like wailing, she remembered her father telling her that she was now 'a big girl' and she continued walking bravely.

Dewi tried to recall where she had last been with her parents and retraced her steps. She went to the hardware store where her father had wanted to get some tubes for the garden hose, but her parents were not there. Then, she went to the grocery store, where her parents went to buy their weekly supply of food. She searched from section to section but her parents were nowhere to be found. Her heart sank, "What if they went home without me? How am I going to get home then?" This time, a tiny tear fell from her eyes and stained her face.

She sat on the bench and thought. Suddenly, an idea struck her and she brightened at the thought. She dashed to the first floor where the Information Counter was situated and told the receptionist that she was lost. The kind receptionist took down Dewi's particulars and in two minutes, her name, age and a description of her was heard over the loud speakers of the shopping centre.

Dewi's parents arrived at the counter within the next ten minutes. They looked more worried than Dewi. Dewi smiled proudly for coming up with a plan to find her parents and she began telling them of her little adventure being lost in that shopping centre.
