Tina (an excerpt)
Tina quietly strolled out of the graveyard. She did not want to be seen by anyone. “The graveyard is not a good place for little girls,” they said. But it was important for her to go there, to go and see for herself. To be sure that Uncle Joe was dead, dead and buried.
One night Uncle Joe called her close to him and whispered, “Tina, my love, I do not think I will be able to see the light tomorrow.” On hearing the cruel truth from her Uncle Joe, Tina burst out crying. Uncle Joe lovingly held her hand, patted it and said, “Do not worry. I will come back, Tina. Remember, I will come back to you.”
