Nathan and Xavier
“I got a new XBOX, Xavier.”
“Nathan is so lucky. He’s rich and gets so many nice gifts,” thought Xavier, as the two friends sat on adjacent swings, waiting.
“I got only a baseball bat, Nathan,” he told.
Xavier saw his mother walking toward them in her waitress uniform, and hurried away with a quick “Goodbye” to Nathan.
Nathan saw the beautiful woman walking toward them, giving them a smile but Xavier didn’t give him a chance to say hello as he dashed off, and the two of them headed off in the opposite direction.
“Xavier is so lucky. He has a mom who smiles properly and loves him to bits, and who comes every day to pick him up from school.”
His thoughts were broken by the honk of a car. He looked up to see his chauffer waiting for him, the car door open.
“Your mother is busy, Master Nathan,” he told, but Nathan had just got inside and sat on the back seat, looking out the window at the two silhouettes in the distance, fading away.
