There would be days where because of everyone’s work schedule I would be dropped off at 8AM and not picked up until night time. Those were rough times and I do not recall them pleasantly at all. I remember they put an extremely inappropriate movie on that had a huge sea monster squid like thing…

While Sai is superficially upset by Gyan’s tardiness to her tutoring session, she reveals that she feels “washed over” (3) in melancholy. This alludes to Sai’s belief that her life circumstances are a burden. It is ironic that Sai’s wash of emotion has tarnished her well-being, as opposed to instilling a sense of pride in her…

    “Here you go Clover” I stare at Jeff the zoo keeper, while he drops a gold coin into my tank. When he walks away, I slowly slide down from my perch that was up on top of the fake little rainbow, that they had given me for my tank. I didn’t like the rainbow that much, but I guess it will have to do. In my opinion the rainbows back home were the best. Colors mixed perfectly in the golden rays of the sunlight.
