Cup Cakes, Lawns and Real Love…

“I don’t want anyone to say you’re a thief, Billy.”

“You stole my heart, why can’t I steal a tiny cup cake?”

Alice rolled her eyes.

“I promise to pay it back with my first wages.”

“We’re only twelve, it’ll take years!”

“Please accept my gift, Alice.”

“Only if you pay for it.”

“How?”

“Let’s visit my granny.”

“I don’t want her money.”

Alice laughed. “Granny’ll make you work for it.”

Billy’s eyes lit up. “I’ll mow her lawn for a whole year! And I’ll see you every day!”

“I’d like that much better than a fancy cup cake.”

    1. Thank you, Robbie. The picture reminded me of a young student of mine some years ago. He told me he often shoplifted chocolates and treats for his little sister. He was very low income family and I remember trying to convince him not to do so. One of my suggestions was to do odd jobs etc. It happened years ago, and my mind just went there.
