She comes running to us, with her ruffled hair and patched frock, as soon as the red light comes up. She tries getting our attention through all means. She calls out to us, tugs at my dress and holds her palm in front of me. After almost snatching the coin from me, she runs to someone else. And then the light turns green. She runs back to the footpath where her little bro waits for her. She carries him, shows off the money that she has collected and hugs him. She looks extremely euphoric.

She then looks at the traffic light, probably waiting for it to turn red again.
