The young farm workers

Since they were quite young, they had learned to pay their way, and their passing through childhood was brief at its best

    Two years had gone by already, since they stopped attending school, for there was only first and second grade to pursue, and when they had finished, they were barely seven years old.

    That had been a very special day, for they rarely saw each other anymore. Few were the occasions when they had the time to gather together. When they finished second grade, each found themselves helping out with the chores at the farms where they each lived with their families.

      In those times, all had to work since they were very young, and they didn’t have the time to play among themselves.
