Boom-boom, prrrr, prrrr,
“I’m going to win you,’’ said Carlos to Ricardo.
‘‘No, you’re not!,’’ yelled Ricardo.
Carlos and Ricardo where playing Ps2 on their house. They were very unite, but one day Ricardo who was the older one decided to take the car with out his parents permission.
‘‘No’’ said Carlos, ''That's a silly act.''
‘‘I don’t care!,” Ricardo yelled.
“You should promise me not to tell anything to mom and dad,” said Felipe kind on angry.
It was a very difficult promise because Carlos had never lie to his parents and Ricardo was like his best friend, and they would always have confidence in each other. Ricardo took the car and look for his friends in Bocagrande to run. It was about eleven o’clock when Ricardo called Carlos.
“Hi, Carlos. I’m here at a bar with some friends and then I’m going to run.” Said Ricardo.
Few hours later, their parents arrived home, but hopefully they didn’t see that the car wasn’t there because they parked their car in the garage of the first floor. Few minutes later their father decided to buy some things at Carulla. He wanted to take the car that was on the second floor. But that car was the one that Ricardo took out. Ricardo’s father got furious. He phoned the doorman.
“Who took my car out?” asked him.
Ricardo, sir,” said the doorman. “He went out about two hours ago”.
“Who did he go with?”, asked Ricardo’s father.
“Alone”, the doorman answered.
Then Ricardo’s father called Carlos. Ricardo got nervous. He had listened to his father.
“Yes, dad”, answered Ricardo.
“Come right now”, his father yelled.
Carlos trembled in fear. He went to the living room were his father was looking for a telephone number in his cellphone.
“Who took my car out without my permission?,” asked his father.
“I don’t know”, answered Carlos.
His father repeated the questions once more.
“I don’t know,” said Carlos looking at he floor.
“Tell me the truth, Carlos,” his father shouted furiously.
After seeing that, Carlos looked at him and said the truth.
“Dad, please, forgive me,” said Carlos.
“I do know. Ricardo took your car.”
“Where did he go?” asked his father.
“He told me he was going to a bar where he usually goes,” replied Carlos.
Later on his father went to look for Ricardo, his older brother. Two hours later, they started to get worried.
When they arrived to the bar, people from the bar told Carlos and his father that Ricardo had already left.
While they were at the bar, Ricardo was going to the bay with some friends. He was driving too fast. They took a curve so fast that the crashed with a tree. Hopefully, nothing bad happened to them except for some bruises. But the front part of the car was a ruined. The boys were very nervous, especially Ricardo.
Minutes later the police arrived to the place were the accident had occurred. They asked them many questions and tested them. They were drunk. Then a crane came by and took the car with it. The police put Ricardo a fine that cost a lot.
Now, Ricardo was more nervous and worried. His father will be very angry. And he had not enough money to pay for the damage. His friends said they had no money. So he had to solve the problem by his own.
An hour later his father saw a lot of people on the street where the accident had occurred. He got nearer and saw Ricardo with the police around him. He stopped there. When he got out of the car, he grabbed Ricardo by the ear and took him home. He was so angry that he said to Ricardo that he was going to talk to him tomorrow The next day, Ricardo was the first one to wake up. He went to Carlos´ room to say him that he was a tattletale. Carlos told him that he was sorry, but he did it for his safety. When his father woke up he told Ricardo that he was punished three months with out car, and two weeks with out going out. Ricardo told him that he was sorry and that he was not going to do that anymore.
