The thief jumped over the wall and crept to the front door. It was open. Surprised, he slipped

inside. In the pitch dark he slowly moved forward. Suddenly a hand fell on his shoulder.

"Who are you?," a soft whisper.

"A thief." he blurted out.

"Why have you come here?"

"Thought no one was at home."

"No one is here."

"Then who are you?"

"Another thief."
