At the beginning she asked me if I like P…ę B…l43 and E…ę H…d44, this question surprised me a lot, I was not prepared for something like that. I did not want to answer that, on the grounds that it was my internal matter that nobody cares about. Hearing that, her eyes brightened and her speech trembled.

Seeing this, she began to translate, but I did not want to hear her translation, and said that it was for the commitment and that it was her internal matter and I did not care. This finally reassured her that "der Libe"45 was over, her voice trembled and she walked away I feel sorry for her, but I really don't understand why she stabbed her
