    Apparently, the whole airport area was flooded already, transport had come to a standstill and all mobile networks had been jammed. She told me that she had been trying to catch a ride home, since an hour earlier but no taxi would take the risk of getting stranded in between. I went to my room to finish up my homework and reward myself with some cartoons on television but I felt listless. I stared out the window and prayed for it to stop raining but it didn't seem like it was going to stop anytime soon. I walked around the house bored out of my wits, waiting for my mother to call and confirm whether or not she would be coming…

    World War Two started when she was five and ended when she was ten. Helga recalls being about 7 or 8 when the air raids started. Even so young she understood that what was going on was “dangerous” and caused “shortages.” Later Helga explained to me that everything was rationed; the food would come in shipments and people waited in line to get it. Times were so bad that sometimes people would wait in line for horse-meat. She said, “People lined up at night with little chairs and the women usually did their knitting then family members would take turns waiting in line.” Other issues caused by the war included a lack of coal to heat houses, or water if a bomb hit a water line, and power outages.…

In the short story it states, “she told herself as she hurried back home, she was returning to her husband and he was waiting for his supper.

She was just going home with the vegetables on Thursday evening to cook dinner for husband.” (Page 383) This shows her thought process of how she was convincing differently of the situation at hand.…
