I’ll geethaay getting a salary. There was a tumbledown shed on that hill, and Duishen started a school in it. One day, carrying bagfuls of dry cow dung for fuel, which we usually gathered at the foot of the mountain behind the village, we decided to go guri see what the teacher was doing in the old stable. They’d laugh and point, and say something like: Duishen asked in a shocked voice, peering into the faces about him.

Specially, the Aunt and Uncle of Altynai portrayed a couple of great evil who would be hated by every reader. And you, too, must stand where you are and not talk.

Frightened out of my wits, I slung the bag on my shoulder and flew to the village. Hard though he tried, Duishen could not geethaha any timber to build a bridge across the stream.

No one noticed it though everyone was in high spirits, talking and laughing. I remember now that it never occurred to me to wonder who planted those poplars. It’s either a man or a horse they’re closing in on. After the speeches, the school’s Young Pioneers presented her with a bouquet and a red Young Pioneer tie, and then asked her to make the first entry in the visitor’s book.

I treasured the notebook he had given me, and I practiced my letters on the ground with the tip of the sickle, on the mud walls with a bit of charcoal, on the snow and in the dust with a twig.
