My Most Embarrassing And Frightening Experience!

866 words - 3 pages

Have you ever wanted something so badly that you would do anything to get it? Whether it was that special someone you have had your eyes on for a while or that new sixty inch plasma TV you saw in the electronics store. Often people go through drastic measures to get these things. They lie. They steal. They even go so far as murder. I know because I was once like those people. I wanted something so badly that I chose to do the only thing I thought I could do to get it. I stole it. It was the most frightening and embarrassing experience I have ever had. It was late afternoon, around six o'clock, when my parents and I left for the grocery store. I was use to this because lately it had become a weekly routine.

As I stood there staring, contemplating, wondering what I should do, two voices inside of me were arguing. One voice was telling me to take the candy and the other was telling me not to. Unfortunately, one of the voices had to win so I opened up my bag and started stuffing mounds of candy into it until it was full. At that moment, it felt like I was all alone; like I was the only person in the store. I couldn't see or hear anything else. It was just me and the bag filled with stolen candy. Everything went down hill after that.
