All the years of her life
The Special English Program -American 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 drugstore was beginging to close for the night.
Young Alfred Higgins who worked in the store, was putting on his coat,getting ready to go home.
On his way out, he passed Mr. Sam Carl, the little grey hair who owned the store.
Mr. Carl looked up at Alfred that he passed and said in a very soft voice.'Just a moment, Alfred. One moment before you go.'
Mr. Carl spoke so quietly that he worried Alfred.'What is it, Mr. Carl?'
'Maybe you be good enough to take a few things out of your pockets and leave them here before you go.' said Mr. Carl.
'What things? What're you talking about?'
'You've got a compart and lipstick and at least two .. tooth paste in your pockets, Alfred.'
'What do you mean?'Alfred answered.'Do you think I am crazy?'his face got red.
Mr. Carl 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.
'Petty scene,Alfred 'said Mr. Carl.'And maybe you be good enough to tell me how long this has been going on?'
'This is the first time I ever took anything.'
Mr. Carl was quick to answer.'So now you think you tell me a lie.What kind of fool 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. Carl has 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 painter. He works nights.'
'Who is at home?'Mr. Carl asked.
'My mother, I think.'
Mr. Carl started to go to the phone.Alfred fears made him raise his voice.he want to show he was afraid nobody. He acted this way everytime he got into trouble. This happened many times since he left school. At such times he always spoke in a loud voice as he did tonight.
