He hugged the statue of Jollibee then the Jollibee staff saw him, then they invited him inside. At the end, the mother found him happily eating a piece of chickenjoy.
I remembered the last time when I was young, when I excitedly told my mother that I want to buy goldfishes in a pet store. I was so thrilled to go to the pet store, then suddenly I hold a strangers hand. And, my eyes widened when it was not my mom. I saw her 5 feet away from me, and she was observing my reaction. She said I should not be careless whenever I’m in a public place, and I must be aware at all times because the world isn’t safe for someone who just wanders off.
