Text 2
It was Monday afternoon. I was tidying up my room when I heard the bell of the ice cream vendor. I called him
and went out to buy the ice cream. My cousin, Didi, was watching TV. His face looked unhappy. I wanted to cheer him up
so I bought him the ice cream too. We enjoyed the ice cream together. Suddenly he asked me where I got the money from.
I told him I didnt know. The money was just in the wallet. I thought that the money was mine because I sometimes forgot
that I had money, or where I kept my money. Didi said that the money was his. He grabbed my wallet and took an ID card
from it. He showed me his student ID card. Hey, its Didis wallet. I didnt know that. I was sorry that I had spent some of
the money for the ice cream. But luckily, Didi didnt get angry. His face even looked happy. He opened his wallet and
gave me some. Didi, I love you man.
