The mysterious thief

On my 9th birthday my best friend Rafia presented me a piggy bank. Though I said it was a piggy bank, it was actually a rabbit bank. It was really cute and adorable but kind of weird at the same time. The weirdest thing was that its color was yellow. Now I don't think anyone has ever seen a yellow rabbit before.
After getting that bank I started my first ever deposit. I would save coins from wherever I got but one day I realized that my bank was not filling up. At first I thought it was our maid but my mom said that she was a very trust worthy person and there was no chance she could do it. Then I thought that it was my guardian angel! She must have seen that I was the one who broke mom's favorite vase and now the course is that I will remain poor forever.
So from then on I started to be a very good girl. I started to help mom do the dishes and stuffs like that but still my bank was not filling up. So I kept my bank in my dad's cupboard for some extra protection but it did not help either. Finally I became kind of crazy to find the reason.
So one night I kept a doll on my bed and covered it with a blanket. Then I hid under my reading table to keep a good watch over. Around like 12 o'clock at night when I was about to leave my vigil, I heard someone talking on the phone and coming towards my room. So, I kept patience and waited. Then I saw a man walking into my room and checking if I was asleep. When he thought I was asleep he took my bank and started taking out my coins and when I saw his white hair I realized it was my dad!!!! He was stilling my money!!!!!
It was tough to hold myself anymore. So, I tip-toed my way to him and patted him on the back. He turned around, saw me standing with a pointed eyebrow and his expression was worth taking a picture. He looked like as if he has seen a ghost.
He simply gave me a silly grin and left the room. So that puts an end to the mystery of the disappearing coins. I hope I'm going to be rich soon.
