One day, when he was gathering up some cartons, heard a voice from the bottom of the trash can, saying:
– “Read me, read me”.
Cristian got frightened, but the next day had to turn to take those cartons he had left there, and heard the same voice saying:
– “Please, read me”.
But as Christian could not read, decided to go to school that day, where the new teacher was teaching lots of new stuff and was shocked because the kid could not read.
