AJulia, will you be my wife?
BI’m sorry, Steven.
APlease, Julia, I have made proposal to you five times. I really want to share the rest of my life with you.
BI know. But I’m not ready for married life yet.
AJulia, I really love you. I hope I can stay with you no matter you are happy or sad in future.
BYour way does touch my heart.
ASo, will you marry me?
BI want to think of it for some time.
AHi Mary, how’s it going?
BWell, last night I had a big argument with Ann.
ATerrible. It must be something serious. You two are such close friends.
BNow that I look back at it, it wasn’t that big a deal. I shouldn’t have lost my temper.
AReally? What happened?
BIt’s just we’ve been planning to go the beach for a while, and we decided we could both make it this weekend. Then out of nowhere she called me up, said her boyfriend had made plans and that she need to cancel the trip. I was so angry when she told me that I said she didn’t care about our friendship at all.
AThat’s pretty harsh.
BI know, but I was so upset. I mean, come on! Does she have to do everything her boyfriend says?
AYou know she probably feels just as bad.
BWell, I think I was being a little selfish myself. I know they don’t get to see each other very often.
AWell, in that case I guess maybe you can be more understanding. You shouldn’t let a trivial thing like this stand in the way of your friendship. After all you can go to the beach anytime you want.
BYeah, I’ll call later to patch things up.
