In the eyes of the girls Sergey lost Nicholas. No one in the school could not imagine that she liked Sergey. Someone once said Sergei that saw Tamara with Nicholas in the movie. This was not true. But the self-esteem of Sergei was piqued, and he invited to the dance friend Tamara. It so happened that Tamara saw them and since then about Sergei would not hear. In a year Tamara married Nikolai.
Nikolai graduated from military school and moved to Tamara from one military camp to another. In the far East with Tamara was born daughter, Svetlana.

On the meeting with Sergey it and not remembered. Sometimes they are with Nicholas went to town to the parents, but Sergey is no longer met. Nikolai had never offered to go to Sergey. May be, he still was not sure of the wife?
When Nikolay died, Tamara was only forty-five. No one expected that strong, sturdy man in a moment dies of a heart attack. But not without reason called myocardial disease decisive men. How many times Nikolai take responsibility for yourself, how many times helped colleagues! And a word to anyone! He died, and never see her granddaughter. She was born a month after his death.

Once Sergey called Tamara to work. His voice broke off. Aleshka seriously ill, and he had need of care, and quit Sergey couldn't - he had expected increase in the service. But with Tamara was the granddaughter in his arms. Young people gathered in the evening to friends. She called her daughter to work and said resolutely: «the visit to friends postponed»...
Week Alyosha was in delirium, and she sat by his bed. She gave him a hot chicken broth, tea with honey, put a wet towel on his forehead. And when the temperature was asleep, he smiled at the «new mom»...
Tamara moved to Sergey, leaving his apartment of the young. The daughter of Tamara herself now raising their child, going to the correspondence Department. She had to leave the job half-time, but her husband began to earn more. Once a week Tamara visits them.
