Mr. Wilson also offered to teach Timmy some basic self-defense moves. Timmy eagerly agreed, and for the next few weeks, he visited the laundromat to learn how to protect himself.

Tommy was taken aback by Timmy’s unexpected kindness. At first, he got even angrier, unable to understand why Timmy was being nice to him. But as days went by and Timmy continued to be friendly and supportive, something inside Tommy began to change.
