She was looking forward to this day for a long time and she felt completely ready. She found an attic that she will rent and move out to. She went to hairdresser and had her fist perm done. All the plush toys (except a little monkey and a pink elephant) she gave to her nine year old neighbour Sashka. Mom and dad were content that she was admitted to the University to study medicine and they were approving all the other changes in her life easily. The mirror was also approving her new image, with light, everyday makeup.There was only one thing remaining, something that will mark the point of no return to her childhood.She was a bit surprised how confident she felt. Even if there would be a fear poking its head, she would step on it mercilessly.The culmination was waiting for her and she didn't have time for doubts. For her 18th birthday she gave herself the gift: a boyfriend who loves Jazz.

Dugo je iscekivala taj dan i bila je potpuno spremna. Pronasla je potkrovlje u koje ce se preseliti. Stavila je svoj prvi mini-val. Sve plisane igracke ( sem malog majmuna i roze slonica) poklonila je devetogodisnjoj komsinici Saski. Mama i tata su bili zadovoljni sto je upisala medicinski fakultet i sa odobravanjem su pratili i sve ostale promene. I ogledalo je odobravalo neupadljivo ali svakodnevno sminkanje. Ostala je jos samo jedna stvar, nesto sto ce zaista oznaciti nepovratnost u detinjstvo. Bila je zacudjena kako se ni tu nije mnogo kolebala. Ako bi negde i izronio strah, nemilosrdno ga je gazila. Vrhunac je cekao na nju i nije imala vremena za sumnju. Za svoj osamnaesti rodjendan poklonila je sebi mladica koji je voleo jazz.
