The emotional scene was captured on camera by the children’s mother when a businessman from New Orleans dropped by their lemonade stand to show his support for the young entrepreneurs.
Chloe and Milo Sylvester, together with their friend Carly, opened a lemonade stand in which they sold lemonade, cookies, and artwork. Unfortunately, it began to rain, and consumers arrived at a much slower pace as a result.
Melissa was well aware that if she ordered them to clean up and come inside, it would cause them a great deal of emotional distress. The children did nothing except sit there and wait until a vehicle eventually pulled over in front of them.
Malik Cornist, the adult, made a purchase from the kids that included lemonade, a snack, and a piece of their artwork.
Melissa decided to videotape the event because she saw that the children were smiling and joyful, and she thought it would be nice to have a record of it. She uploaded the little movie on TikTok, and it quickly gained a large number of views.
“I had never met Malik before. My first thought was, “Who is this angel?” He purchased all that they had available for sale. He had a grin on his face and seemed intrigued.”
Malik was going about his day as normal when he received a direct message from a buddy inquiring as to whether or not he had purchased any lemonade. Everyone admired the thoughtful act he performed.
The families of Malik and Melissa were able to reconnect and start a new relationship as a result of the video becoming viral. Chloe sketched another piece of artwork for Malik to demonstrate her gratitude, and this time it was a picture of a dragon enjoying a glass of lemonade.
Chloe garnered a lot of positive attention for her abilities, and some people suggested that she could sell her artwork. But Melissa insisted that she did not want for her daughter’s inventiveness to be inhibited by financial concerns.
She wants Chloe to take pleasure in what she is doing and be pleased with the things she has created.
