Jojo lays the Cactus Trap
A thief had been spotted in the area.
Let me put cactus plants outside our window. It will be difficult for the thief to come in, Mom. said Jojo.
Sure, Jojo. But never open the door for strangers. said his mother.
Jojo lays the cactus trap.
Jojo talks to himself- There! This should help us sleep peacefully.
Jojo was watching his favorite cartoon, when he heard a knock at the door.
Who could it be? I don’t want to miss even a second of the show! he said to himself.
Jojo went up to the door.
He asked Who is it?
Courier, Sir! came a voice from the other side of the door.
Jojo opened the door and in came the thief.
The thief said Don t scream, I don’t want to hurt you.
The neighbors started to bang Jojo’s door.
Neighbors- Open the door, Jojo!
The thief had stolen someones wallet and made a run for Jojo’s house to escape the crowd following him.
The neighbors were banging the door continuously, which made the thief panic.
He said Where is the window?
Jojo pointed his finger in the direction of the window.
The thief ran towards the window and jumped outside. A scream came from where the thief had jumped. Aaaahhhh!
Jojo rushed towards the door and opened it.
Neighbors asked him- Where is the thief, Jojo?
When they went towards the window they saw the thief lying on a bed of cactus, groaning in pain.
Your cactus bed did work, Jojo! said his father when he came back from work.
Jojo was silent and thinking to himself.
His father asked Why are you quiet?
Jojo replied, I put the cactus bed to stop the thief from coming in, not to stop him from going out!
Hearing this, his parents had a hearty laugh.
