On Saturdays, Luh Ayu Manik was able to leave for home earlier than on other days. Normally, she left her middle school in the late afternoon since she had to attend school for the whole day. She sat on the floor of the school security post (Satpam) and fiddled around on her cell phone. Every now and then she would laugh and then look serious again.
Or jump up … and then sit down again. Her mother, who sold small temple offerings for a living, had still not come to pick her up. Luh Ayu Manik sometimes thought it would be a good idea to bring her motor cycle to school but her mother, who was very protective of her, did not agree. In her black bag, there was a teen magazine along with some books from an art exhibition that she had visited with her mother two days before. However, she was reluctant to take the books out of her bag.
It’s better to play with the phone than to read books, she thought. After all, there is a lot of knowledge and a lot of books online.
