Tommy was excited about the crayons he bought. He had created so many pictures with his last box that his crayons were small pieces and many were to tiny to handle limiting his creativity as a result.

His grandmother had given him chores while he visited her. He hadn’t expected anything in return but was grateful when she gave him five dollars. He vibrated with excitement as he picked his crayons.

He spent the morning on the picnic table using those new colours. He didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when he found them melting in the afternoon sun.
