last day

A few of the students haven't been coming lately, as they've been ill.

The students get sick easily because their houses aren't insulated and they don't have running water, but they do have plenty of rats and fleas.

Josť Pablo, whose left foot has been infected so badly for the past five months that he can barely walk on it, returned for the last day.

Helen, who sobs constantly because her father left, also came back.

(I can always help her stop by distracting her with a pile of books.)

A few of the ones who always have bruises didn't show.
