Introduction

An Unforgettable Moment I remember it so vividly as if all of that happened yesterday. It was the beginning of my first school year, and that meant buying new books, pencils, notebooks, and new clothes as well. I pretty much destroyed everything at my grandma's house playing with kids in my cute outfits. A shopping day like this, not many kids looked forward to, including me. The weather was cold, cloudy, some raindrops here and there, and that's how my mood was. Being almost seven, my favourite part of the store was the toy department.

I just ran towards him, giving him the biggest hug I could muster, hiding the tears of joy in his neck. After that, all other toys were forgotten; fot there was only one that had my full attention. Back then, as much as I loved playing with her, I loved to smell her whenever I hugged her for she smelled like chocolate. Maybe it was only my imagination, but I liked it.
