With big eyes full of expectation, he looked up to me. His hand searched for something in his pocket. While licking his lolly carefully, he pulled out another one. He glanced at it not even a second. Then his arm emediatally reached out to me, holding his candy in front of me. He did not say a word, but he asked me to take it. I couldn't believe what was happening. Slowly I shook my head.
