Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors’

8 Sentence Sunday Blog Hop

Continuing this week with Chapter Five of “Internat Adventures”.

Preamble –  Jan., 1969: We had just returned to school from Christmas break.  My room assignment remained the same, but, there would be new people to share it with.   

Last time, you met Vivian.  Now, meet Jennifer:

Jennifer arrived just before supper time.  She was the daughter of American missionaries and had been living in Africa for several years.   Her older sister, Joan, was also at the school, but in the Senior girls’ building.

In the beginning, Jennifer was a shy little girl and completely unfamiliar with the pop culture of the day.  She had been home schooled by her parents and led a sheltered life.   

Over time, she broke free of her cocoon and turned into quite the social butterfly.  At this point, she was still the meek little caterpiller.

    1. Hi Cindy; Yes, I did Google a few and found three of them. 🙂 Was happy to see that Angelika is alive and well, (she was the one who slashed her wrists). Vivian lives in New Zealand now and Marie Luise in Hamburg, Germany. Unfortunately, there was nothing about Jennifer. Glad you’re enjoying my story. Thanks for visiting.

  1. You were exposed to the larger world at a young age–much larger than most children are. I wonder how much Jennifer taught you guys while you were teaching her… And, I think it’s fantastic that you remember so much from your youth! Nice 8, Debbie. 🙂

    1. Hi Marcia; Jennifer was a quick study and she took to “modern” life very well. 🙂
      The school year had three semesters and two breaks:
      1. Sept.-Dec.
      – two week Christmas break
      2. Jan.-Mar./Apr.
      -two week Easter break
      3. after Easter- end of Jun.
      It was a general policy to change roommates at the start of each semester, so we could get to know more students.
      Thanks for visiting and have a great week! 🙂
