However, the child of the niece of the businessman was not the happiest. Her family lived modestly. Irina remembered the case when it was called “a tramp” on the Playground.
“Years, probably eight or nine I had a friend whose family by Soviet standards lived very well: the father was the head of MOORE or something like that. Once in the winter we played at school our favorite game. Ran, fell on his stomach and slid across the ice on the pavement. Ride, and then her grandmother comes. Dramatically raises his friend from the ground and begins to scold: “you Have such a pretty coat! You want to be like that Gypsy? To look at it disgusting!”. Ragamuffin was me. They’re gone.

“With new people I find it hard to communicate, I am a person shy. I envy those who can come into any company, with all to get acquainted, and after two days already to be friends. But I, if someone made friends, never from the person themselves will not let go. Mom always told me: “In our country, nothing is allowed to accumulate, wealth comes and goes, you will always remain only education, dignity and true friends”, – said Irina.

Everybody says, “Oh, Irina, Sasha, Hello!”- and Misha decided to show rigor and says: “why are you here so late ride?”My daughter gave him a look that said, “I don’t have time to talk,” and left. Everyone laughed, and he stands and looks confused at me,” shared memory Irina.
