It was a perfect addition to her Barbie Collection. Looking back, Victoria had fun playing with it and learning the basics of doing laundry.

But now that she was married and had a growing family of her own, reality struck. She found doing laundry very tedious, especially with Austin not willing to share the load. Her husband’s main excuse was that it was an unmanly thing to do.

Tonight Victoria planned on getting even. When Austin felt the urge to unload, he wouldn’t get a free ride. She’d tell him to leave her alone and do it on his own.

After cashing in on recyclables he collected from the streets, Jaylen got a large pizza for New Year’s Eve.

It was a real treat, a luxury considering their humble circumstances.

While waiting for the green light to cross the street, a scruffy kid grabbed the pizza from behind him.

“Hey, you!” Jaylen yelled as he followed him weaving in and out of foot traffic.

The chase ended in the nearby public housing complex.

“Why did you do that?” he asked his younger brother Niles.

“You’re a slow poke,” Niles said as he opened the entrance door leading to their apartment.

Ella was hanging her freshly washed stuffed animals outside their apartment window when she spotted that cute boy living on the second floor playing on the ground below.

One of her stuffed animals fell off the line as if on cue.

The boy saw it, picked it up, and waved it in the air.

“Got it!” he yelled.

He then rushed upstairs to give it back to her.

“Hi, I’m Jimmy,” introducing himself. “Hi, I’m Ella,” she replied. “It’s nice to meet you.”

What do you know? It turned out to be the beginning of a new friendship for both.
