Boy opened the door. He wore his green Ninja Turtles t-shirt above another olive longsleeve. You look like a Christmas tree, I continuously told him with disgust. He laughed every time, admiring my “humor.”

A beige bag in his arms caught my eye. Pulling out two golden boxes, Boy gently handed one to me and the other to Sarah. I ripped mine open. Ruby earrings? I glared at Sarah, she had her own set.

“My ears aren’t even pierced…” Sarah remarked. We chucked the jewelry back at Boy.
