Chris has been homeless living on the streets for several years trying to get his life back together. Before he was living on the streets, Chris was living with his family in a middle class house hold. His family was never rich but they always did what they could. At least that's what the family wanted you to think. Chris is the only boy 10 years and has a older sister name lytrell 15. He felt so alone in his family and they always showed lytrell more attention. Chris started to become depressed and suicidal. He always thought about killing his self but never had the courage so he would cut hisself repeatedly every night. His parents always questioned him and beat him after for lying to them. Things had gotten so bad one night that his parents started to become afraid and annoyed with him so they put him in a mental institution for "crazies and psychos" as they call it. Leaving him there his family never returned to see him until the hospital felt that he was sane enough to come home. When they finally brought him home his parents had all of his clothes, shoes, and hygiene items packed. Chris was kicked out of the house left to be on the streets and fend for himself. His parents forbid him to ever return or they would have him arrested for trying to kill them. Now at the age of 24 Chris has been sleeping on a bench or in a alley. He pan handles on the streets asking for food and money or a place to stay hoping that someone will rescue him. One day eh slept on the bench in a ball shivering from the blazing cold with no blanket to warm him up. A girl name uche sees him laying on the bench in front her dads store. She has seen him before but never had to courage to speak or interact since her father always tells her to never talk to the homeless or strangers. She approached him with some hot chocolate and a blanket. He flinched not realizing what was happening until she came up to him. Little did they both know, meeting each other will change their lives forever.
