Manuel was one of 6 kids. His mother couldnt afford to buy all 6 kids new clothes every time they grew so the oldest brother would hand down clothes to the next brother.Since there was 5 boys Manuel always got the end of the hand-me-downs.
Manuel got a new pair of shoes for his 13th birthday. He felt like "James Bond" because he looked good in them. He wanted to save them for a special accession so he didnt wear them for a while.
"James, James Bond"
Finally the special accasion came, Manuel was able to wear his new shoes. He had just one problem, he had a groth spirt and now the shoes dont fit. He still wanted to wear the shoes because they were in better shape than his old ones.
Manuel was walking to a party with his new shoes on but he couldnt stand the way they fit. His foot was aching the way there so he decided to walk backwards until Angle (a bully) stopped him and was asking him why he was walking funny. After that Manuel decided to go back home.
When Manuel got home his uncle was in the living room. His mom was telling him how his uncle was in need of money and needed a place to work. Manuel looked at his uncles shoes and realised what he could do for his uncle.
Manuel decided to give his new shoes to his uncle because they didnt fit. His uncle was very greatful. Manuel learned that it didnt matter what his belongings looked like , it was how they fit that made them good.
