Example text

She had never felt as much anxiety about her own marriage as she did about this relationship of her daughter’s, which she couldn’t really warm to but that she yearned for. The aunt, indignant at Rita’s high-handed decision, went to her room in silence. “Nobody understands,” Rita wrote to Manfred after tearing up a long, confused letter. “I want to become a teacher. I’m not going to say anything more. ” He responded thoughtfully that apparently it was impossible to know what she would decide from one day to the next.

Early every morning, when Rita pushed her bike up the hill from the tiny house by the edge of the woods where she lived with her mother and her aunt, up toward the main road, the chemist would be standing half-naked by the pump in his cousin’s yard, running cold water over his chest and back. Rita would gaze up at the blue sky, into the clear morning light, trying to gauge whether it might provide relaxation for a tired mind.

As she looked for her pen, she was quickly able to turn this coincidence that would change her life into a necessity. Hadn’t she been waiting long enough? Was this not meant to happen Christa Wolf sooner or later?
