Hank and Edith: Lesson 2
E: Hank said, ”OK!” Edith sat
on it in the chair and pushed a cup of coffee to in front of Hank.
Z: Hank said, ” How do I know you’re not trying to poison me? I don’t usually trust strangers.”
E: Edith drank a cup of coffee in front of Hank.
She To prove it wasn’t poisoned.
Z: Hank was so used to being grumpy and alone, he had a hard time believing that this woman was sincere, but he felt he could trust her.
E: At that time, Edith’s cell-phone
rung rang, she said, “ see you please excuse me for a moment“, she went back to her home, bringing only her coffee cup only, two pieces of cheese cake s and a cup of coffee were left on his the table.
Z: Hank though, “that was rude,” but then he looked at the two pieces of cheese cake in front of him and his mouth started to water.
didn’t hadn’t come back to his house soon yet, and Hank can’t couldn’t wait to eat it, so he ate one bite.
Z: It tasted delicious! Hank gave another look to see if Edith was returning, and when he saw that she wasn’t he quickly stuffed both pieces of cheesecake into his mouth.
E: After that, Edith came back
again to his porch, she was smiling when she saw the empty plate and thought about whether to pick up the tray and tried to go back to her home.
Z: Hank felt terrible, he tried to apologize but his mouth was so full of cheesecake the only sound that came out sounded like a grunting pig.
To be continued…
I thought about a title for this story with Z.
My ideas were “‘Hank and Edith’ or ‘The neighbors’.”
one were, “‘Hank the Crank Takes Edith to the Bank’ and ‘Good fences don’t make good neighbors’.”
In this time, I showed him my snack. But it was the same as usual, nuts and chocolate. Z looked at it and said, “Are those the same ones from
for weeks ago? They might be stale.”
“No way!”😤 …..🙂
