Lucy was a very spoilt kid and had everything. Lucy was enjoying her sleep when she heard a loud bang! She jumped off her bed, Lucy saw a gargantuan Time Machine; it said 'Enter' on it. She entered it and closed the door and it zoomed upwards. First it reached India where there were lots of beggars on the street. They had no food and no sufficient clothes to wear. Next she went to Africa and saw slaves doing lots of work and getting beaten up by their owners. Lucy realised that she had to appreciate everything she'd got.
