The boy ran down the street, looking flustered and sweaty as he went from house to house with letters. He was a weird sight indeed, with a bow atop his head, which without backstory would make many a person confused. His sister had forced him to wear it, saying that it was so he would look pretty. 
The boy ran up to a doorstep, reaching into his bag and taking out a package, and setting it down on the porch. He was then off and running again, past the drunk bank clerk who always got drunk at 4:00 o'clock on Saturday to the minute. The boy, whose name was Sam, passed Mr. Watson who was on a ladder, painting his house, a paintbrush in his hand. Unfortunately, when Mr. Watson went to wave at Sam, he knocked over his can of paint, its contents exploding over the ground. Sam continued running, arriving at his house where his father waved at him, standing next to a handyman. The handyman was smiling, seeming to be way too joyous considering it was cloudy and he was talking to Sam's father, but Sam just walked past his father and into the house. He closed the door behind him, gently closing it to avoid his mother's wrath, and ran silently over to his bedroom. Sam fell onto his bed, exhausted from the day, the sound of sirens in the distance as he groaned loudly. Before he fell into a deep sleep, he got up and sat at his desk, opening up his computer. It was exactly 5:00 p
