Jennifer held the flash drive and stared at it in stunned silence for a long time. She did not know whether to laugh or cry. “But this is what you use to play music. If you give it to me, how will you listen to music next time?”
The little girl grinned. “That's okay. I have many more at home. Besides, this one can't play music.”
Jennifer was about to return the flash drive to the little girl when she saw a middle-aged woman rush over while calling out reproachfully, “Sara! What have I told you many times before? Don't run off like that!”
The girl named Sara stuck out her tongue, then turned to Jennifer and said, “Bye, then!”
The middle-aged woman kept thanking Jennifer profusely. “I can't thank you enough. Thank you for looking after my granddaughter.”
“Oh, that's quite all right. She's adorable,” Jennifer replied.
