friendly. Both Fatou and Andrew are reaching for answers to questions that sometimes test the limits of their knowledge. Fatou saved one children's life on which she has to look up to. But this situation changed everything. Mrs Derawal decided to throw her out, because they do not need a nanny but a housecleaner. When Fatou has to leave the house she firstly called Andrew who has a solution. After the call she went swimming one last time and then waited for hours at the bus stop hearing the shuttle cock and seeing buses come and leave.
