Special English English Program American Stories.

Our story today is call “All the Years of Her Life”, it was written by Morley Callaghan, here is Shep O’Neal to tell the story.

The drug store was beginning to close for the night. Young Alfred Higans who worked in the store was putting on his coat, getting ready to go home. One his way out, he passed Mr. Sam Carl, the little grain hair who owned the store. Mr. Carl looked up at Alfer as he passed and said in a very soft voice.

Just a moment Alfred:”One moment before you go.”

Mr. Carl spokes so quietly that he worried Alfred.
“What’s it, Mr. Carl?”
“Maybe you be good enough to take a few things out of your pocket and leave them here before you go.” Said Mr. Carl.

“What’s things? What’s your talking about?”
“You got a compact and a lipstick and at least two tubes of toothpastes in your pocket, 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 didn’t know what to say and try 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 stolen.

“Petty, thieving, eh, Alfred.” Said Mr. Carl, “and maybe you may 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 do I look like? I don’t know what goes on in my own store. I tell you, you have been doing this for a long time.”

Mr. Carl 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. Carl asked.
“My mother, I think.”

Mr. Carl started to go to the farm. Alfred’s fears made him raise his voice, he want to show he was afraid of nobody. He acted this way every time he got into trouble. This had happened many times since he left school, as such times he always spoke in a loud voice as he did tonight.
