The Robbery at My Neighborhood

By Maia

The car that I saw that day did not look anything like the cars I usually see driving into her driveway. My neighbor’s car is a red Chevrolet. The second car that I saw pull in was a small blue car. Although I didn’t see what brand or car name the blue car was. I saw a glimpse of the man in the car. The man was black. My neighbors are white, as well as the mother. Automatically I knew that the man was NOT her child. Sometimes I see people pull up into other people’s driveways to turn around. So I watched to see if the man was just pulling up to turn around. The man didn’t turn around. As my neighbor walked into her home with groceries, the man stayed parked in her driveway.
