TEXT 2 – Authors: André Oliveira and Tiago Diogo (9ºA)

A Perfect Ending

Well, we went back to London. As soon as we got there Rachel didn’t drop her computer for a second. By the way, she stayed with me in London for a while because she wanted to visit some places.
Two days have passed and she was on the computer many hours per day. I was getting fed up with that and then she explained what she was doing. After seeing what we saw at the Pandawas Academy, she decided to search for solidarity groups so she could help those who are in need.
After a week she was already in Portugal but kept telling me how wonderful it was to help those children in the Academy. She remembered that each kid had an amazing and tragic story to tell.
Anyway, I’m really thinking about joining one of those academies. I wish there would be some here in London.

Oh, I forgot to tell you about my birthday. It was really awesome. I went to Alton Towers and finally got to ride a roller coaster with Rachel, which was amazing because she is one of my best friends. Remember, just friends. Oh well, that’s all for now. We’ll see what the future brings.

Não minha opinião este "perfect ending" é o melhor pois pensa extamente como eu e como eu acho que seria um final perfeito, jogando com a passagem dos dias e aproveitado o espaço temporal para desenvolver a história. Muito bom!

Eu gostei especialmente deste final porque está escrito na primeira pessoa. Para além disso, este texto parece-me mais real porque se aproxima muito do que poderia ter sido o fim de uma experiência nossa. Para terminar, destaco duas coisas que me cativaram: uma é a parte em que os autores roçam algum romantismo "Remember, just friends" e a outra é o toque final em aberto, despertando em nós o desejo de uma nova leitura "We'll see what the future brings".
