"Art for me is everything, without art l'd rather die. If I can't be an artist, better to die."
I only said, "Oh Elena, don't do this... it's not like that. Why did you go back to theatre class? We made a deal you wouldn't for now. You wouldn't go..."
She'd stayed away from theatre for more than a month. She said, "Then nothing has any meaning for me.' And I, " But we made a deal you wouldn't go, why did you, if it makes you feel so bad. Give it a while." I said, "I waited for you, I'm so tired, and have to leave early at 5."
"Will you look after Petra?" She nodded. Then she lay down on her bed. I said, "Ok, I'll come back early. As soon as it finishes. You'll wait for me? Take care of Petra?" So I went to my room and she started sobbing. I didn't go back there. She cried for about 10 minutes, till she finally stopped.
At 5 in the morning I went to her again, "I'm leaving the alarm clock so you take Petra to school, ok?" She just nodded and went on sleeping.
