(1) I don’t even remember the name of that book. (2) I only remember that on the brown cover, in a long zigzag, was the pennant of some sailboat.

– (6) Sanyok, thanks for the book! (7) I read all night today: I could not tear myself away! Petka said smiling admiringly and shook my hand.

(8) At this time, Kolka Babushkin, my desk neighbor, entered the class. (9) Big-nosed, lanky, ungainly… (10) He didn’t have a father. (11) He and his little sister were raised by their mother, a hysterical, noisy woman who kept coming to school to deal with the offenders of her children. (12) But such intercession, of course, only strengthened our contemptuous and arrogant attitude towards her miserable offspring.

(13) Seeing Babushkin, everyone was sternly silent, and when he nodded his head, smiling, greeted us, no one even looked at him. (14) He put the chewed leatherette briefcase on the table and suddenly saw a book. (15) She was lying on his half of the desk. (16) Grandmother froze and reverently, like a shrine, took it in his hands, flipped through the pages, and a strange enthusiastic smile appeared on his face. (17) He looked at us and suddenly said:

– (18) Thank you for the gift!

– (19) Put the book back and don’t touch someone else’s! I snapped out of my daze.

(20) Kolya trembled in fright and dropped the book. (21) Everyone laughed. (22) And he, ready to fall through the ground with shame, blushed deeply, hastily picked it up and, stroking the cover, pushed it away from him, as if apologizing for daring to touch it.

– (23) It’s just my birthday today, and I thought that …

(24) Thirty years have passed since then, but I still remember that incident with the book when I accidentally destroyed the huge house of human faith, when I hurt another and did not find the courage to correct the mistake. (25) And our life went on a different road, where everyone is hurt and lonely, where there are no those who can raise the fallen.

(26) And this book … (27) Kolka, yes, I would give you the whole library! (28) Yes, we would have given you everything … (29) But only you burned down in a tank near Kandahar when I was in my second year at university. (30) Pain has become my inseparable companion, she looks at me with the eyes of a lanky eighth grader and patiently reminds me: human life is short, so never regret what you can give, never take away what is asked of you.
