All in the name of hunger!

A rattled and guilty Samira was sitting under a bridge while nibbling at the crust with eyes wandering 360 degrees. 

He was chewing ruthlessly to swallow the crushed contents in his mouth. Hunger made him steal a loaf from a bakery. Now he feared the consequences, but with no pennies to spare he did not think twice over again.

While dusting off the crumbs from his bare chest, and adjusting his hair, "Life is not fair, but I have to own up" he mumbled as he walked towards the pastry shop to own up his crime and face the ramifications. 

In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a thief or a theft. Consider motives and repercussions. Is the act a matter of perception? Is it a daring maneuver or a desperate bid for survival? Think about different instances of stealing.
