The five year old, trained beggar walked on the burning floor with bare feet, begging for some money to buy shoes for himself, for his feet burned under the scorching heat and by walking on the heated floor. Her heart melted instantly, she gave him the money and kissed him on his forehead. He smiled.
When he went back home, he was asked, “How much did you earn today?”
He gave them all of it, and slept the night with tears in his hopeless eyes. His heart hurt more than his feet.
She should have bought him the shoes.
