This boy thought that the City was a wonderful place.
It’s exciting and full of opportunity. Despite his mother’s worries, he thought he was ready for it. He was ready to work.
But he did not know that the City was only kind to a few.

His decisions had real consequences.
As the day went on, the city lost it’s allure.
And “reality” stung him.
