I did not put any importance on the car. I just went directly to my house.
It was a Saturday. The president died on Friday. Sunday passed normally. But on Monday, started the worst weeks of my life.
Hey son. Where were you?
Okay. Do not worry about it. But from now on please arrive here.
I was watching the soccer game at Gahij's house. Then we heard gunshots outside. So Gahij's parents preferred that I stayed there.
My dad felt terrible. Why was he getting fired and not the Hutus? Now we did not had any incomes. From this point, things only got worse.
First day of the first terrible week. On Monday my father got tired.
Why am I getting fired? I have done all my work in a short time and excellent quality.
I am very sorry. But the company owners have ordered to fire all the Tutsis that work in this company.
Is mainly to avoid any conflict between the ethnic groups.
For me, that Monday was pretty bad too.
Hi son. How was school today?
Why? What happened?
Well, to start with Gahij did not go to school today. Also, when I was packing my bag to come back home, I heard some rumors.
Today was a terrible day.
I liked going to school and being with my friends. Well at least with the persons I thought were my friends.
That is terrible. But it is not official yet. There is still hope.
Well, apparently at my school, the presence of Tutsis is going to be forbidden. Students and teachers. Or so I heard.
Then, it was Tuesday's turn to suck. And it actually did. The rumors that I heard the day before were true.
After lunchtime, I had something that the school decided to call "extra ordinary homeroom". It was to discuss the situation happening between Hutus and Tutsis. I remember that I sat down next to my "friends".
I was kind of surprised he said my name. Remember that I told the school I was a Hutu but some how they heard the truth. When he said my name, all of my friends were looking at me, as if I was an alien or something like that. It was the first time I felt like that,. And for sure it was not the last.
The names that I am going to say, are the students that will no longer be welcomed here.
