My real father is from Moscow.

He was a soldier in the Russian army.

My mom says I look a lot like him, which I think

is really cool.

When I was five, he went back to Russia.

And the only thing he left

me was his military jacket.

I wear it all the time.



I'm going down!

I'm going down!

I'm going down!


Not today!


Get in bed!

There are only two or three

things people talk about with me...

My blond hair, my pale skin, and my jacket.

I got all those things from my father.

Hold on.

Our table's occupied.

Hurry up.
