Special English program Ametican Stories. Our story today is called "All the Years of Her Life". It was written by Morley Callaghan.
Here is Shep O'Neal to tell you the story.
The drug store was beginnig to close for the night, young Alfret Higens who worked in the store was putting on his coat getting ready to go home. On his way out, he passed Mr Sam Car, the little grey hair man who owned the store. Mr Car looked up at Alfret as he passed and said in a very soft voice.

"Just a moment Alfret, one moment before you go." Mr Car spoke so quietly that he worried Alfred.

"What is it, Mr Car?"
"Maybe you'd be good enough to take a few things out of your pockets and leave them here before you go." said Mr Car.
"What things? What are you talking about?"
"You've got a compact and a lipstickand and at least two tubes of toothpaste in your pockets. Alfred."
"What do you mean? " Alfred answered.
"Do you think I'm crazy?"His face got red.
Mr Car kept looking at Alfred coldly.
Alfred did not know what to say and tried to keep his eyes from meeting the eyes of his boss.

After a few moments he put his hand into his pockets and took out the things he had stolen.

"Pity seeing here, Alfred." said Mr Car. "and maybe you'd be good enough to tell me how long this has been going on?"

"This is the first time I ever took anything."
Mr Car was quick to answer.
"So now you think you tell me a lie? What kind of a fool do I look like? I don't know what goes on in my own store? I tell you, you've been doing this for a long time."
Mr Car had a strange smile on his face.
" I don't like to call the police,"he said," but maybe I should call your father.And let him know I am going to have to put you in jail."
"My father is not home, he is a printer. He works nights."
"Who is at home?" Mr Car asked.
"My mother, I think."
Mr Car started to go to the phone, Alfred's fears made him raise his voice, he wanted to show he was afraid of nobody.
He acted this way everytime he got into trouble.This had happened many times since he left school at such times he always spoke in a loud voice as he did tonight.
