Mike walked home from school like he did everyday. His life was slightly off average. He was an only child, single mom, and had two jobs. Not the American dream but it wasn't out of the ordinary for this area of the city. Mike dipped into the corner store for a snack. He bought a monster, a bag of chips, and a hoagie. He paid with some pocket change and went home. Mike plopped onto his couch, feet propped up on the coffee table. He flipped through the channels trying desperately trying to find something to watch.
