Keisha leans in to smell the flowers and runs her fingers over the tops of the flowers. Then one of the white buds falls off and bounces off on her shiny black shoe.
Mrs. Muldon grabs the flowers from Keisha's hands.
You Keisha Almond, will be the only girl without flowers.
No. Please I didn't mean...
Well she can have some of mine then.
Ally: I watch a mind movie of me being the only girl without flowers. And the look on my moms face, how she'd be the only sad parent. I hold her gaze as I hand half the flowers to Keisha. No one should ever feel like that.
