Special English program American Stories. Our story today is called All the Years of Her Life. It was written by Morley Calhan, here is Sharpe O’Neal to tell you the story.

The drug store was beginning to close for the night. Young man 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 Carr, the little grey hair man who owned the store.
Mr. Carr looked of back Alfred as he passed, and said in a very soft voice, just a moment, Alfred, one moment before you go. Mr. Carr spoke so quietly, but he worried Alfred.
What is it, Mr. Carr?
Maybe you’d be good enough to take a few things out of your pockets and leave them here before you go, said Mr. Carr.
What things? What are you talking about?
You’ve got a compact, and a lipstick, and at least two tombs of tooth base in your pockets, Alfred.
What do you mean? Alfred answered. Do you think I’m crazy? His face got red.
Mr. Carr 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 saving, Alfred. Said Mr. Carr. And maybe you would be good enough to tell me how long this had been going on.
This is the first time I ever took anything.
Mr. Carr was quick to answer, so now you think you tell me a lie?
What a kind of a fool do I look like! I don’t know what goes on in my store? I told you, you’ve been do this for a long time.
Mr. Carr 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 left him know I’m going to have to put you in jell.
My father is not at home. He’s a printer. He works nights.
Who is at home? Mr. Carr asked.
My mother, I think.
Mr. Carr started to go to the phone, Alfred’s fears made him raise his voice. He wanted to show he is afraid of nobody. He acted this way every time 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.
