written by: najia Nijat

Shazia and Naqib are the guests of Lalo Mama. Shazia is angry with Naqib and doesn’t want to speak with him. Lalo Mama comes and they greet him. Naqib says to Lalo Mama that Shazia is not talking with me. Shazia says that Naqib was insulting one of his friends who was recently released from the bridewell.

Lalo Mama takes them to the corridor of the castle and says that he, who is released from the bridewell, had been punished and he might become a good person. Lalo Mama opens a window.


In the window, the reporter of the castle is talking to some boys, who are once released from bridewell but arrested for the second time.

A boy says:

My family, friends, and relatives had bad behavior with me and were saying that I was in the bridewell and I would never become a good boy. I became disappointed and followed some bad boys, and in the result, they committed a crime, but police arrested me and I am again in the bridewell.

Lalo Mama closes the window. Naqib says that he would ask excuse to his friend and would never bother him again.
