Sophie throws leaflets over balustrade (v.1)
When I saw the leaflets stacked there on the third floor, I immediately knew that these had to be the same leaflets that my brother and I had found on the stairs and on the entrance to the second floor. As I walked by, I gave the stack of papers that were on the balustrade a little shove, so they fluttered to the ground into the Lichthof.
My brother did not even notice these leaflets until they were already fluttering in the wind. I now realize that what I did was a stupid mistake, which I now regret but cannot change.
