After almost three years of being in the same class, Lilia and Y. seem to have made a bit of progress in their relationship. Up till now, Lilia has been very wary of Y. He has been known to sit on top of her, and Lilia, who is unable to read his intentions, believes that he has come to take something away from her every time he appears in her space. But last week, she let him push her wheelchair when we were on our way to the car after school. And today, he pushed her to the classroom in her SRC (walker). Later, Lilia’s teacher cut a persimmon into quarters for a snack for her and Lilia wanted to give one quarter to Y. Maybe one of these days they’ll actually be able to play with each other.
