Honesty is the best policy

Ringgg! The bell rang.

“Yes!” I yelled as today, we were going to have a 1 hour time of recess. I jumped as I punched my fist in the air. I let out a stupendous cheer. Everyone rushed to the school canteen. There was a beeline in every food counter.

I headed for my favourite “Happy Burger” shop. I, too, was famished.

From far, something shiny caught my eyes. It was a wallet. It had ten five-dollar notes and a fifty cents coin. Without hesitation, I quickly took it to the general office and told what happened. The school clerk, Mrs.Tan, commended me for being honest.

I felt proud of doing a good deed that day. Indeed, I always believe in the saying “Honesty Is The Best Policy”.
