She stood there right in front of me. She looked at me with her big blue eyes and I saw that she was trembling.
I was cleaning up in the kitchen, preparing for baking and a couple of girls chose to help me instead of taking a break. I had promised them buns if anyone defeated me in the long jump competition. One of them did…
Suddenly the tears came up in her eyes and she started to cry loudly. She hugged me so hard and whispered “I don’t want to leave you, I don’t want any new teacher” I was very touched and surprised over this reaction . I hugged her back and the tears burned in my eyes… I didn’t know what to say, so we just stood there and I heard that some of the other girls were crying too.
We have one more week together, one last week after seeing each other every day for six years. Yes it hurts to leave them.
After a while we dried our tears and I said:
This is not goodbye, we’ll meet again.
Then we made 100 vanilla buns.
I’ll never forget that moment.
