Amanda’s cakes


After three days of hunger spent in their tiny apartment, mom and Amanda sat at the table for dinner. Loss of mom’s job about six months ago had become more meaningful now when bills and charges were eating away her savings, leaving her with nothing to feed her kid. Today, however, she had earned a smile for Amanda’s face while falling from grace when she stole muffins and cakes from a friend’s housewarming party she had been invited to.

The table looked lively with a basket full of food. Amanda pushed her plate for mom to fill it.

As soon as mom moved her hand towards the food, two dirty rats sprung up from nowhere and dug into the basket. The bigger rat bit into the muffin while the smaller one fell flat on the cake dancing all over it. They both grabbed muffins into their mouths and scurried away.
