Kahu seemed to be in everything the school choir, the skits and the gymnastics and after every item she would skip back to us and say "Isn't Koro here yet, he's missing the best part?"
For the rest of the evening the seat beside Nanny Flowers remained empty. Porourangi didn't have the heart to tell kahu that Koro wasn't coming.
Then the secound half of the program began. There was Kahu in her skirt and bodice standing so proudly infront of the school cultural group. Hands up hips she yeld "Let's begin" she ordered and as she sang she smiled a brilliant smile towards us and her voice rang out with pride.
