She only had her dog named Ponto and workers who are Negros. Her dog named Ponto and her workers who are negroes. This basically shows that she is all alone. One day her neighbour went to visit her mom leaving her four children who had never experienced handling a kid. At first she complained to her aunt who was her cook.And this clearly shows that she didn’t gladly welcome those kids. This was in the beginning but gradually she developed love for those kids which she herself has not realised .But she felt lonely only when her mother came back to take her kids and at that time she cried out loud without realising that her pet dog was already licking her hand.
Emptiness – It was first time in her life after the departure of the kids from her house which made her empty from inside.
