Nabi Berusia Lima Tahun Dimanjakan Sepuluh Bersaudara - Chapter 202 - Origami Cranes
After school, Milo’s parents also stayed behind to thank Ruby for her help.
Ben had completely forgotten that today was Friday and school ended an hour earlier. He only recalled when Lauren requested Carina to call Ben.
So Lauren had to wait in the classroom for a while.
Lauren was not the only one left in the classroom.
Milo’s mother was repeatedly thanking Ruby’s mother, Susan, while holding on to her hand.
“Thank you so much for your daughter’s help. If it weren’t for her, I don’t know what would have happened to this brat of mine.”
Susan said, “It’s nothing. As long as the child is fine, it’s alright.”

However, Lauren felt that Susan’s expression was a little unnatural.
Milo and his mother had already left. The form teacher, Miss Carina Bailey, was still talking to Susan in the classroom.
“You really taught your child well. She’s good at math and she even knows the Heimlich maneuver. She saved Milo’s life today.”
“Maneuver? What maneuver?”
Carina smiled. “It’s the first aid method that Ruby used today. If it weren’t for you parents teaching the method to Ruby, Milo today…sigh, let’s not talk about it anymore.”
“Oh…” Susan nodded. It was as if this was the first time she had heard the name of this first aid method.
Hearing someone calling her, Lauren looked outside. Ben was already waiting at the classroom door.
“Miss Bailey, my uncle is here. I’ll be leaving first.”
“Okay, go ahead. Have a good weekend.”
“You too, Miss Bailey!”
When she reached the door, Lauren turned around.
“Ruby, have a good weekend. I’ll see you next Monday.”
As if she did not expect Lauren to talk to her, Ruby looked up with surprise in her eyes. She quickly came back to her senses and nodded at Lauren.
“I’ll see you next Monday.”
After receiving Ruby’s response, Lauren skipped toward Ben in satisfaction.
She did not listen to the class the entire day. All she could think about was her schedule for the next day.
She was going to visit her parents the next day!
After Lauren got into the car, she hugged her school bag and looked out the window.
Looking at the blue sky and white clouds, Lauren was in an extremely good mood.
“Miss Torres, what kind of treasure is in your school bag? Why are you hugging it so tightly?”
“It’s not a treasure. It’s just that everyone will get an origami crane that I have folded today.”
Lauren took out a yellow origami crane from her bag and placed it on the dashboard while they were stopped at the red light.
“This origami crane was specially folded for you.”
Lauren was not very skillful with origami. Her origami crane’s wings were of different sizes.
However, Ben was very happy.
“Thank you for remembering me, Miss Torres.”
“How could I not remember you? You have been so good to me!”
Ben did not go home immediately. Instead, he drove a little further down the road and arrived at the entrance of Thomas Johnson High School.
Since they were going to visit their mother, Maria, tomorrow, Bryce had to go home with them tonight.
There was no such thing as an early dismissal for the third year students in the high school. All the teachers were eager to keep their students in the classroom.
However, because of the itinerary for the next day, Bryce specifically requested a leave of absence from the teacher.
When Bryce walked out of the school gate with his school bag in hand, Lauren was still folding paper.
Before Lauren left school, she asked the teacher for a lot of square-shaped paper in a variety of colors. She was getting better with the folding now.
“Miss Torres, why did you fold so many origami cranes?”
As she folded them, Lauren shook her head mysteriously. “It’s a secret, Ben.”
“Secret? Miss Torres, don’t tell me you have a boy you like?”
Lauren thought about her classmates in the kindergarten.
Milo, who ate marbles…Alan, who had a runny nose every day…Peter, who didn’t even know what one plus one was.
She shook her head.
“I’ll never like them. I prefer people like my brother, Franklin.”
Bryce opened the car door and heard what Lauren said.
Bryce sat in the passenger seat, while Lauren sat in the back seat.
“Master Bryce, school is over.”
“Then we’ll go home. Master Franklin will leave work early today.”
“Alright, let’s go home! I haven’t packed my clothes yet!”
Ben looked at Bryce through the mirror. He was wearing headphones and was immersed in his own world. He did not pay any attention to Lauren.
On the way back, Lauren was still folding origami cranes.
She was folding origami cranes so diligently because Joie had told her that if she could fold 1,000 origami cranes, the sick person would get better.
So she wanted to fold 1,000 origami cranes and give them to her mother.
