“Which flower represents you ?”
While waiting for lunch, I asked Purvi, the Indian girl with long curly brown hair and big shining eyes.
“Lily, Hydrangea, and Lotus. ” She answered.
“How about me ?” I asked her.
“Birds of Paradise.” She said.
“The color is brilliant, and it’s unique”
“I love Roselle and Sunflower too,” I told her.
I drew Purvi in purple and Mowen in black, with a background of Hydrangea and Roselle, on a page of the Victorian London map.
Purvi drew Lily, Lotus, Rainbow, and Bird of Paradise on a piece of white paper.
Then I cut those flowers Purvi drew and stuck on my drawings.
“See, this is Purvi and Mowen.” I showed her the first drawing we made together.
“I love it !” Purvi was happy.
This is how we started to collaborate on the second project at school.
