Why did everyone keep asking me how I felt? How did they expect me to feel? I felt rotten. I felt worried. I felt scared.

Scared about her falling and hurting herself.

And very very scared about what my friends would say when they found out what was going on.

How did I feel? What a dumb question.

Onthe right side of the seats, on the table she placed a pale blue napkin and blue silverware. Then, she placed a saucer and teacup on the left side.
