“Why don’t you sell all these showpieces? As it is, we are struggling with our lives. This is the least you can do.”
Laura, the youngest member of the Davis family loved making small showpieces out of crystals from the time she was a teenager. Though they weren’t really well off, Nick, her father always ensured that his daughter had all the tools to keep her hobby going.
Over the years, she had made showpieces of varied shapes, sizes and colours. It was just a hobby until the day Nick’s business crashed and he was forced to file for bankruptcy.

Oh! So sad! But so nice of her dad to encourage her little hobby when he could.
He encouraged her as much as he could. But sadly, things didn’t work out :(.
A poignant one….life can be cruel sometimes :/
