Mimi's Heroic Deed

Mimi was calling home from a public telephone across a goldsmith's shop when she noticed two suspicious-looking men enter the shop. One of them was holding a big bag. He seemed to be carrying something heavy and bulky. Mimi watched them as they walked into the shop with a deadly calm. There were three customers in the shop and one of them had a child with her.

Mimi immediately cancelled her call back home and dialled the police emergency line instead. In the meantime, she turned her back to the shop and pretended that she knew nothing of what was about to happen. However, the reflection on the glass pane of the phone booth allowed her to keep a hawk's eye on the movements of the two men.

It was not a moment too soon when she made the call. As soon as she walked away from the phone booth, she heard the terrified screams of the customers in the goldsmith's shop and the smashing of glass. Without glancing back, she knew that the robbery was in progress. She hurried to the nearest corner to wait for the police to arrive.

She was surprised when the police officers arrived at the scene of the crime from the back lane. It was a clever tactic that took the robbers by surprise in the midst of their robbery. Mimi left before the police could find out that it was Mini who had made that crucial call and alerted them.

The next day, the daily newspapers reported the capturing of the two most wanted armed robbers. They also reported of a mysterious girl who heroically called the police. Mimi was proud of what she had done, but she did not want to brag about her good deed. She was just happy and relieved to know that nobody was injured in the process of yesterday's events.
