Prompt 1: Something you had that was stolen  
When I was 13 I asked all my family to give me money for my birthday so I could go shopping for new clothes.

In the first shop I went into with my mum, I was trying on some clothes and a lady stole my wallet out of my mum's bag.

To lose all that money and end up with no presents on my birthday was heart-breaking. We went to the police and reported the theft. As we left the police station we bumped into my maths teacher. He took me for an ice cream and somehow that cheered me up.

I realized that day never to ask for money again as a gift - you never know when your wallet might get stolen...
