chapter 1~ problem
"Timmy? Timmy honey, I have to talk to you about something important." Miss Harris called Timmy from the other room. "Yes, miss Harris?" Timmy ran into the room.
"The headmaster and I had a conversation about you-"
"Am I in trouble?" Timmy interrupted miss Harris who didn´t seem too happy about it,
"Timmy, where are your manners?", miss Harris stared at him for a moment and then continued. "That´s exactly the kind of behavior that got you into this situation in the first place".
Miss Harris breathed in heavily, for some reason she cared for him more than for the rest of the children. maybe because he was the most troubled one? or because she knew him the longest? in both ways, her affection toward him helped him a lot. "The headmaster informed me that you have one more month left to find a loving family before your time is up.", Miss Harris looked at him, waiting for an answer.
"Are they kicking me out?"
"Timmy, you knew since day one that the law lets you have 10 years of free education and health support from the government and then you have to find an adopting family!".
Miss Harris said in a broken voice.
"But.. It has been only.. 8 years"
"No Timothy, you have been living here since your mother died while giving birth to you. And now you are 9 years old, you´d turn 10 in 2 month".
Miss Harris was now almost shouting, it was really hard for to tell him he has to leave his only home. especially because of their connection.
Timmy stared at the floor trying to bring himself to say something. However, no words came out. Miss Harris thought of a way to cheer him up, but she couldn´t find anything comforting to say.
"Go to sleep Timmy, I´m sure we would be able to think of a solution tomorrow.".
