Half of Them Looked Depressed.

I was thinking about giving up my lessons at English Now because my english hadn’t improved in months. Laura had bought the study book, but I had been getting lazy. I just wasn’t studying. We made a big circle with the other kids. I had to sing a Joy Division song. More and more kids joined the circle. Half of them looked depressed and the other half really excited. Miya asked why we were singing.
“Because it’s fun,” I answered.
“Why?”
“Because it makes us happy”
“Why?”
“Because… because… I don’t know.”
She slipped away.
It was snack time. Risa put out knives, forks and napkins for all of the children. Shoko said, “Don’t worry about it. That’s just Risa’s dumb english way.”
