... of the best pastry shop in the city.
Yes, dear children. My tonnage speaks for me. I am a glutton.
And when I go for a walk in disguise I can 't help but stop at my favorite pastry shop. Eyes and nose enjoy a lot.
But it 's some days that pastries are no longer 24 in the tray at the center of the window.
After 8 in the morning, one is always missing. In that corner, there, in the top right!
So I found a place where to hide and observe everything.
At about 7:30 a little girl always enters. She holds a coin in her hands.
"Can you give me a chocolate croissant, please? - Says she, kindly, to the pastry chef.
And while he prepares her bag she hides her arm behind her back and, oplÓ, a cannolo is in her pocket!
Intrigued, I followed her. Too early to go to school .. in fact ...
She makes a long tour towards the door of a church where there is a Rom boy, begging for alms.
He seems very thin and hungry. He needs just a moment to devour both croissant and cannolo. The two children play for a few minutes. And then they say hello.
So I knew their names: Matilda and Raul.
"I think Matilda gives up her snack for Raul ... but nobody has to steal ... I know what I 'll bring to Matilda and Raul on Christmas Eve" ... and, smiling, I continued my walk.
What will Santa bring to Matilda and Raul? Be patient until 25 December ...
By the way, we are Italians, to translate better the stories. Thank you :))
