This is part 2 of a story that began yesterday - please read part 1 first here.
I sat at my desk, surrounded by tokens of appreciation, and watched him walk, head down, to my desk.
"What's up Max?" I asked but got no reply.
Max reached down into his pocket, pulled out a balled up tissue and placed it on my desk, then he did something he rarely ever did, Max looked me straight in the eye.
"Happy Birthday" he said, then Max turned and walked away.
I was not prepared for that ball of tissue, not in the least.
to be continued tomorrow...
Dying to hear, I'm thinking he was crying? No, wait, there was a gift in the tissue... hmmm!
LOVE this story! It reminds me so much of an excerpt from my time spent with children(well, other people's children). I love kids - but you know me, I have a real soft spot for those little fellas.
And birthdays as a teacher - well, there has never been such a grand celebration since! Those little munchkins sure know how to make you feel special! (Though I have to admit - I NEVER received a crown!)
Can't wait to find out the meaning behind the enigmatic tissue ball!!
Oh Max. So sweet!
I can't WAIT to hear! Hm, was there a gift in the tissue...aw, what a little sweetie!
I feel like a fish on the line and you are reeling me in. Course, I've never been a fish but I would imagine they are wondering what is coming next?
I don't know why (it might be the paranoia inside) but this story is starting to worry me.
Max is okay, right?
I can see Max in my mind's eye.
Jeanette! I want more lol.
Was that a gift? it had to be.
I can't wait to find out what was in the tissue. :) I just know this is going to be the sweetest story ever.
This little boy is capturing my heart. Please don't let it be some dead bug or something in there. Love that picture too btw.
hmmm... I'm thinking this little boy might be something special! I can't wait to see what happens next!!!!!!!!
Little Max. I know how this story goes and I still want to read on.
A gift? Or a prank?
He seems sort of cute already though.
I am going to read both parts right now...I cant wait to read it...
Kisses my dear
Ps: I am hosting a sweet GIVEAWAY today :) Hope you will join in :)!!!
NOOOOOO You said TWO parts.
Well that's what I 'heard' and I'm sticking to it.
My curiosity is heightened!! What is written on the balled-up paper from the bad bully Max?? LOL.
You have a fantastic way of telling stories, I am really intrigued by this :)
Since your birthday comes a month into the school year.. Happy Birthday!
i love reading your writing and i can just imagine your room & everything you describe so clearly!
stop by sometime<3
...hmmm waiting for the continued!
this is adorable and dying to know what was inside the tissue paper???
How touching that Max felt safe enough with you to come back to the room, look at you, and tell you Happy Birthday. No doubt a big moment for him also.
My guess is that there's a colored rock inside. His favorite color - of course.
