EMMA : I don’t want you to leave do stay please

MAX : january was sunny on all the buildings in the city centre there were flags with holes in the middle kathi cleaned the house and removed martha and edgar’s wedding photo from the wall

a dark square was left in its place over the forthcoming summer more and more people started to leave

edgar was sent his divorce papers from germany and a year later he received some other papers some forms to fill in printed in blue

that entitled him to emigrate he kept them in the drawer until one day a friend told him this is your last chance at this point edgar left too kathi cried martha and gerd decided not to leave they went to university instead and later got married I continued to stay by my window
