To his surprise, he saw wads of cash inside bundled up with rubber bands. Michael was about to head home from work when he received a call on his cell phone hello. This is Michael. How could I help you hello, sir.
This is Mrs. Watson from high school. I called to check in on Deborah. Is she all right? She asked him. My daughter was fine when she left for school today did something happen?
He said suddenly worried if Deborah was all right. Sir Debra hasn’t come to school this entire week, it’s Thursday and she still hasn’t shown up. So I wanted to check in and asked if she was sick. Mrs Watson revealed Michael was stunned because he’d been having breakfast with Deborah every day before he left for work. He’d even ask her about how the school had been going and she’d always respond.
Everything was going well, Michael, rushed home to speak to his daughter. He went into her bedroom only to find out she wasn’t home yet seeking potential Clues as to why she’s been missing school Michael searched around her room upon looking under the bed. He was surprised to see her favorite backpack in it. A secret compartment filled with roll mods of cash inside bundled in different denominations. What is she doing?
He thought to himself nervous about what kind of trouble his daughter was getting herself into all the worst possibilities. Troubled Michael’s mind: while waiting for Deborah to get home when she did Michael was waiting for her by the front porch. Where Have You Been yesterday? Sorry, Dad Deborah replied. I got a caught up in the library at school.
She lied at this point. Michael was growing impatient and wanted answers from her. He was angry that she was lying to him, but he knew that if he pressed her too hard she’d continue to lie to him. Instead, he decided to follow her the next day when they ate breakfast together, Michael pretended to believe that Deborah had been going to school as usual before she left that day, he told her to have a great day, Michael, followed behind ever when she began walking. Instead of turning left to head to school, she turned right towards the main road there.
She started to set up on the street by putting a cap on the floor and taking her violin out from its case. Why is she playing the violin, Michael ass speaking to himself before he could approach her? Two cops appeared on the street and walked up to Debra. Do you have a performer’s license? The policeman asked her Deborah’s eyes widen and she grabbed her things from the ground before running away in fear.
While she was running she bumped into her father’s chest upon looking up Deborah, had a look of both relief and fear in her eyes Dad she cried hugging him tightly Deborah. He comforted her and asked her as soon as she was settled. What have you been doing on the street? Why are you busking, Deborah apologized to her dad for lying and not going to school? I’M only trying to help Dad my friends and I have been raising money for one of our classmates who need spinal surgery.
She finally revealed so you and your classmates have been missing school because of it Michael asked: why didn’t you just do it after school? Spinal surgery is expensive. Dad we need all the time we can get to earn money for him. The sooner we raise money. The earlier we can go back to school, Deborah explained Michael shook his head.
You need to go back to school honey. There are more ways to raise money for your friend. He told his daughter sternly before the girl could object. Michael was headed somewhere Deborah watched, her dad approach, the cops who apprehended her for busking on the street, dad. What are you doing?
She has trying to catch up with him, don’t find the kids officers Michael said they were just trying to raise money for a friend who’s about to undergo a major surgery. I’M Michael, this young lady’s, daddy, explained pointing at Deborah who was hiding behind his back. The officers decided to let the kids go with a warning. Michael gave his calling card to one of the officers and said he’d be in touch when Michael and Deborah Gone Home. He asked her to go back to school that coming Monday.
Please Debra your teachers might give you failing marks. If you continue to miss your classes, I’ll, take you to school myself next week, all right, he told her Deborah nodded her head, knowing her dad only wanted what was best for her the following week, while Deborah and her classmates were in the first period, Michael in The same two cops who had confronted or entered the classroom together with their teacher, they revealed that they’d scheduled a community charity concert at the school for their classmate who needed surgery. The fundraising concert will be this Saturday and Sunday, their teacher announced tickets will be sold at forty dollars each and all of you are in charge of the performances. Are you up for that? She asked her class the class eagerly cheered that they were determined to make the concert a success.
They spend their breaks practicing and promise to sell at least 15 tickets each. They also asked for help from other grade levels, so they could sell even more tickets by Friday, the class sold enough tickets to fill the whole Auditorium with some people choosing to donate more than just forty dollars. They successfully raised a total of twenty one thousand dollars, which was enough to cover the cost of their classmate’s surgery. When the class presented the money to their classmates parents, they revealed that he had been primed for this surgery for a few weeks already, and all they had prayed for was the money to pay for it, as the test had already been done. I can’t thank you enough.
His mom cried you’re all Heaven Sent because of you. My son will be well again. Thank you so much. She said hugging each and every one of the students who came to give cash on the day of the surgery Michael, was scheduled to pick up his daughter from the hospital on the way home from work as she left the building. She had a big smile on her face.
Her classmate got the surgery dad he’ll recover soon. That’S great news. He said opening the car door for her when Deborah got in the first thing she said was apologize. I’M sorry for worrying you dad. I was only doing what I thought was the right thing.
She explained Michael nodded and gave her a kiss on the forehead. Don’T worry about it, Debra you’re, a great friend, and I’m really proud of you for that.
