a girl...

i heard a big bang to my left... i jerked my head to see what it was... and then i saw her... a tiny, brown girl with matted hair and large eyes... a shopkeeper was shouting at her... she just looked on...

i went close to her, bent down and smiled... she had broken the vase kept outside while running behind a kitten... she looked at me with those large eyes... and then looked away...

i tried to hold her hand... she jerked it from me... i paid for the damage... she didnt react... just looked on...

i left... and then i felt a tug on my skirt... she was standing with her palm outstretched... asking me for money...
