When Ellie was only 20, she lost her family to a house fire. She was the only one who escaped the blazing heat, watching helplessly while the sirens wailed in the distance.
With nothing to her name, she had no choice but to wander the streets and sleep on pavements. Times were hard and nobody was hiring. Shelters were full and couldn’t afford another mouth to feed.
Everytime she felt scared and alone, she reminisced the nights her mother would comb her hair. Her gentle fingers would run through her long dark tresses while applying her special homemade ginger spray into every strand to keep the strong glossy shine it always had.
What Ellie didn’t know was that her hair was actually worth
millions of dollars.
