One day there was a boy, and his name was Royce.  He ate a vitamin and began to shrink. Everyday he would get a little smaller but before he was really big. It took him a while to realize this, but every morning we would appear shorter and shorter in the mirror. Before he ate the vitamin, he would always get good grades in college because his mom told him to. He had wanted to be a basketball player but now that he was shrinking he could not play the big sport.  His mom worried that she would not be able to find him eventually.
