It had been three weeks since Kevin Humphrey had last eaten a cheeseburger. He was on a diet because he wanted to impress the new girl at work. He was walking home from the store one night when he saw a woman. The woman was sitting on a bench, alone. She was crying. Kevin was about to stop and talk to her out of concern, but his roommate called him called him just then and he rushed home. When he got to his apartment, his roommate told him that there was no more food left. The roommate and his friends had already finished it all. Kevin went to bed, hungry, and he thought of the woman. As he slept, her sadness haunted him like moonlight on a discarded cheeseburger wrapper.
