Cafe Colombo is always busy. There are always people sitting at the tables in Cafe Colombo. The men and women are all well-dressed. They drink coffee. They eat ice-cream. They read newspapers.
Charlie does not sit in Cafe Colombo. Charlie is not well-dressed. He sits on the pavement outside Cafe Colombo. He sits on a small box.
Charlie is a shoeshine boy. Charlie shines shoes. He does not go to school. He works all day.
Charlie shines men’s shoes. He shines ladies’ shoes. He shines black shoes. He shines brown shoes. He shines blue shoes.
Shoeshine! Shoeshine! Ten cents! Ten cents! Ten cents a shine!
A man in Cafe Colombo shouts, ‘Charlie!’
Charlie runs into Cafe Colombo. He puts his box at the man’s feet. The man puts one foot on the box.
The man’s shoes are black. The man’s shoes are dirty. Charlie cleans the man’s shoes.
The man gives Charlie ten cents. Charlie takes the ten cent coin. He picks up his box. He goes back to the pavement.
An old man walks slowly along the pavement. The old man is carrying a large hoard. There is a notice on the board. The old man is selling lottery tickets.
‘Buy a ticket! Win a fortune! One dollar a ticket!’
A well-dressed man in Cafe Colombo is shouting.
‘Give me a ticket! Hurry!’
The ticket-seller gives the man a ticket. The man gives the ticket-seller a dollar.
The well-dressed man is in a hurry. A taxi is waiting. The man puts the ticket in his pocket quickly.
The man gets into the taxi. The ticket falls out of his pocket. The wind blows the ticket into the air.
Charlie catches the ticket. He has the ticket in his hand.
Charlie waves his arms. He shouts out loudly.
Cafe Colombo closes at midnight. Charlie’s home is far away. Every night, Charlie has a long walk home.
