“Be careful sweetie; don’t go too close to the railing.”
“What’s wrong? Why are you crying?”
“I am afraid the teacher will scold me in school tomorrow, my homework is not complete.”
Taking her in his arms, hugging her close, he assured her, “Don’t worry sweetie, I will help you finish it.”
Between tears, she replied, “But, she will still scold me, she favours other students over me.”
He assured her again, “Don’t worry, I will have a word with her, so this doesn’t happen again.”
Tanya was sitting by the railing of the hill top, lost in memories of 6 year old Tanya with her Superman.
