He walked precisely past the chair. Hannah spent a while watching him navigate through the apartment and then spoke up, "Honestly though, I don't think You really need that money.", everything got silent and she was guessing he stopped in the bathroom to rethink and make sure he had heard her right. He came out and faced her. Again, an awkward moment of silence. And then he asked, "Do you think so because I know what's where here?" Hannah felt herself blushing, "Oh... I'm sorry... How didn't I think of it? This is your home!" She felt bad that she had spoken her thoughts aloud the moment before, somebody who would use logic would instantly understand that living in an apartment alone for a long time he would have learnt where's what. "No, it's okay. A lot of people don't figure that. After all, You've never experienced it on your skin." he said and smiled. Hannah nodded her head even though she knew he won't see it.
They were sitting by the table and sipping tea. He raised his head and started speaking - "You came too fast, I had planned that I'd have 15 more minutes to get dressed and ready."
"Yeah, I'm sorry Mr. Henneson, I was sure it would do no bad, but seems like I should have come at the scheduled time.", she really felt bad she had come earlier.
He stood up and walked to the window, when he turned around and came back she saw that he was holding a matchbox in his hands. He lit a match and turned to Hannah, "Miss Neom, could You, please, hold the candle out for me?" Hannah obediently put the candle to the match and as it started burning Mr. Henneson blew out the match . Hannah really started to amaze this person, how could he know that much and that point on.
Lizzy licked her face, but Edvard immediately called the dog, making Hannah come back to reality. Oh yeah... Work... Hannah didn't feel too much at ease talking to a person in sunglasses, but if it made him feel more comfortable.
Edvard got closer to the table and cut straight to the case, "So, now you've been acquainted with my dog too and now we could start writing the application." Hannah nodded, took a pen, a sheet of paper and was ready.
"... I ask for pedestrian crossing to be made across the Avenue of Dwan and I ask for it to be made safe for the blind. Unfortunately I must also ask, that I'm given a new dog, as the current one is getting old and deaf. I am also going to complain that for the past two months I haven't gotten my allowance." he dictate and she quickly wrote it down.
They were walking down the street. Mr. Henneson had asked her to go feed ducks with her and so they were here, walking down the street in the search of a pond.
Lizzy was left home because of her hearing impairment, so Edvard boldly walked with his stick. It was almost as if an open road was in front of them as people gave way, only to let them pass. Hannah couldn't figure how he never happened to touch people with his stick. But he never did.
Wrote this story in 8th grade for an assignment.
Roughly translated from Latvian to English.
I still like it though.
I should find my modern day Romeo & Juliet now.
