The Thief by Arun Budhathoki
The main gate is not closed. There’s nobody. I cringe thinking a robber must have broken into the house. I close it without hesitation after I get out of the house. As I walk away towards a shop nearby I remember to call my mother. She confirms the door in the third floor is not open. I still wonder if the thief is inside. After a while, I creep into the house and walk in search of the thief. Still, there’s no one. A few minutes later, I hear someone say, “You, thief, go away.” It was me.
