I want to play too, but I do not know them, and I am too scared to talk to them, maybe they would not like to play with me”, thought the boy.

Until one of them saw him all alone in the bank, nevertheless he turned his sight and still played. The boy realized he looked at him; in fact, he stood up in order to be prepared for kid’s coming; yet, he still played. “I do want to play, I do not want to see them play anymore, I want to be with them”, thought the boy. In addition, he added: “I’m going to stand up and to go where they are and to ask them if I may play with them, yes, that’s what I’ll do” Indeed, this is what he did. So the boy encouraged himself and took his fear away. Consequently, he took courage, stood up and went where the kids were playing, believing in that the kids would not say him no. Being already there, all the kids stopped playing and saw him like a phenomenon. Accordingly, he felt scared by the way they saw him; nonetheless, he took courage again and stammeringly said to them: “He-he-hello guys; what are you doing?” As a result, no one answered; there was a deep silence among them, because they still saw him like a weird person. At this, the boy added: “Ma-ma-may I play with you guys?” and then they said with an outright “no!” The boy almost weeps after having listened to them. Despite their answer, he added spilling some drops of tears: “Why will you not allow me to play with you? Whether there is still a place for me in what you are playing” At this, they answer: “Because you are not our friend” And then he replied: “But we can become friends” At this the kids said: “No, due to we are not interested in becoming your friends. Get away!” So the boy cried and let his tears fall and stain his cloth. Owing of the fact that he did not understand why he could not either have a friend or comprehend why those kids answered him like that, he desired death. So he walked away, crying, toward the bank he was before, in order to see them play again. Kicking the bank as a result of the anger he was feeling, he noticed a knife was under it.
