Find an orange for kindness

A murderer fled for a whole year. When he came to the town, he was already in rags. The starving fugitive didn’t want to leave in front of a fruit stall for a long time, and the oranges on the stall deeply seduced him. But he had used up all his money, and he didn’t know what to do: begging or robbing? The escaped prisoner slowly reached his hand to the sharp knife he carried.


At this moment, a big orange suddenly appeared in front of the restless fugitive. The escaped prisoner felt a little surprised, and the hand holding the knife involuntarily loosened. It turned out that the stall owner had noticed the fugitive for a long time, guessing that he wanted to eat oranges without money, so he took one and handed it to him: eat it, no money. The escaped prisoner hesitated for a moment, took the orange, ate it heavily, and then left without saying anything.


Three days later, the escaped prisoner came to the fruit stand again. Before he spoke this time, the stall owner picked up a few oranges and stuffed them to him.

Under the threat of the police, the escaped prisoner came to the stall owner in shock and whispered: I put that newspaper there, and then walked onto the police car with a satisfied smile. The stall owner looked up the newspaper carefully at once, and found that there were a few lines of small words on the opposite side: I am tired of the exile life of hiding in Tibet. Thank you for your oranges, when I hesitated to choose how to end my life, it was your kindness that touched me. The reward of 30,000 yuan for reporting is my reward.
