Each clutching the dresser's top edge for purchase with one hand, they reach with the other for the lady and the boy, except with their combined weight, both statues slide slowly and then quickly toward them. The dresser pitches forward, toppling over and hitting the floor with an explosion, its drawers escaping in all directions, silk, lace, pressed linen, and cotton flung wide. With a bang that rivals thunder, the dresser delivers the lady and the boy to the girls. The lady flies into the arms of one girl but she's too heavy, and the girl watches the lady roll sideways over her patent leather shoes, surviving the fall with a chipped nose and scratched gown. The boy with the shiny crown rushes past the other girl, soaring like Icarus for a half a second before he plummets, smashing into pieces on the hardwood floor, only his silk and fur cape still intact.
