Satrapi refused to go alone, and her parents lied to her that they would join her a few months later. She knew that her parents were not going to join her in Austria. Therefore, before she left she invited her friends over and give them all her collections, and told them not to forget her. The next morning, her parents took her to the airport and the last thing she said was, "Nothing's worse than saying goodbye. It's a little like dying" (Satrapi 153).
