The Cookie Thieves



“There is no light.”
“But I want one cookie.”
“I can’t see!”
“The candle.”
“There is no match.”
“In the drawer.”
“Found it!”
 “Here. Take only one.”
“Umm..”
The mother laughed silently, watching her sons steal cookies in candle flame.

  1. Aww, cute kids :) I wonder how many they ate before the mom revealed her presence.

      May be 3-4. Mom wouldn't want them to fall sick, right? :)

  2. “But I want one cookie.”

    Isn't it always the way? Always with the feeding!

  3. How cute! I'd be worried they might burn themselves or worse, something else. Haha

  4. I love how she's right there, but lets them have their adventure!

  5. The only thing I would say is the use of 'one' when the child says they want 'one cookie'. It sounded a bit awkward and I think 'a cookie' would have worked better? Other than that I loved the mischief here!

      I had to stick to the given prompt and hence used the word 'one'. It had to be there between the words 'light' and 'candle' to qualify.
      And yes, a cookie sounds a lot better. :)
