SHORT STORY

"Look at this fellas! A black jew and her family!" The tourist pointed at the lady walking on the sidewalk pushing a stroller. She had on a tichel, the typical headcovering of a religious Jew and a black dress. There were two little girls with her, each on either side of the stroller. One of the girls, the older one was peering up at her mother as if waiting for an answer. The mother walk slowly and contemplatively as she thought of the answer for her daughter.

All this was taken in by the tourists as they peered from their car window, one of them recording it all with his video recorder.

Had the family known they were being watched, it would have felt extremely rude; However, since they weren't aware, the scene went on like this for about another minute.

Then the scene was interrupted abruptly as a young man ran by, bumped into the lady, grabbed her purse and sped off!

The surprised tourists looked on. The lady yelled something at the thief then slumped her shoulders as if defeated. Then, in a burst of anger, stood erect again. She reached to the side of the stroller and took out a stick. She unfolded the stick and snapped it in place then began the chase after the thief. With a brief instruction to one of her daughters, she sped off. She did not even have time to acknowledge her older daughter who had taken out her own stick and was right behind her mother.

"Did you see that?" Cried one of the tourists. "keep going, let's follow this, my camera is rolling!"

They revved up the car and headed for the chase....

TO BE CONTINUED.....
