Storyline

While Alex is in the shop where Mallory works, they catch Jessie Blake shoplifting. Dad Steven points out Milford home where Jessie lives is not an orphanage but specialized in problem children, often abused; Nick knows that is true for one of his cousins who lives there, but cant't remember his name nor the abusive Uncle's. Mallory decides to make the criminal her friend, despite Nick's warning one can't understand such kid, and indeed is repaid by more shoplifting... Meanwhile little Andy's greater interest for a toy's box then for its content reminds everybody of Alex's attachment to an identical box, and even at 19 there is a weak spot left in his heart. Written by KGF Vissers
