Write a short story ending with these words: "Then he walked inside the shop knowing that he deserved his reward."
 
Kumar was walking home from school. Nothing pleased him more than to walk along the busy street and look at the glass doors of the shops. When doing so, he never failed to stop to look at the latest laptops in the computer shop.

He was thinking, "I would love so much to own that laptop. But nobody will buy it for me."

So Kumar thought hard of what to do. The school holiday was coming up next week. An idea struck him. He would do odd jobs to earn some money. Yes! That was what he would do.

He designed a plan of working in his neighbors' gardens. First, he would approach them and ask them to let him clean up their gardens. Each owner would probably pay him RM50 or RM60. Working in more than ten gardens would enable him to accumulate enough cash to buy his beloved laptop.

The next day, he went around his neighborhood and asked the residents if he could clean their gardens. He asked them politely, "Excuse me. Can I work in your garden during the school holiday?"

Many of the owners replied `Yes.' They liked the courteous boy.

So Kumar started work in his first house. He woke up early that morning. He took three hours to clear the rubbish and cut the grass. It was not easy work. He had to mow the grass. After that, he had to pull the weeds. Then, he had to arrange the flowerpots. This arduous work went on for a week. Consequently, he had no time for games or even watch television.

Bakri told him, "Heh, forget about your laptop. Come and join our football game."

His mother feeling concerned for her son's well-being told her husband, "Just give him the money for the laptop."

His father said, "No. It is better for him if he works hard for it. He would appreciate his laptop more."

After two weeks, he managed to save RM700. All this money was kept safely inside a drawer. He was thinking, "Not too bad." After this, he needed another RM300. That would mean another week of clearing gardens.

At the end of November, he had saved up enough money. He now had RM1,000. Early in the morning, he went to the computer shop. The owner of the shop smiled upon seeing Kumar. As usual, he asked, "Come to look at the laptop again?"

This time, Kumar said, "Oh no, not just take a look. This time I came to buy it." Then he walked inside the shop knowing that he deserved his reward.
