Exercise 2 : Someone disposing old story books and a friend interested to have them.
It was the school holidays. Amin was in his bedroom. He had no specific activities to do so he planned to clean his bookshelves in his bedroom. There were a lot of books on his bookshelves. Amin knew some books were old and he didn't need them.
Amin chose all the story books which were not needed. He wanted to throw them away. He had the intention to ask his parents to buy new story books. After he had collected all the old story books, he carried them out of the house.
There was a big dustbin near the house gate. He slowly put the old story books into the bustbin. He would not burn them as it might pollute the air. As he was throwing the books, out of the blue, his neighbour, Abdul called him. His neighbour asked him not to throw the books since he was interested to take them home.
Immediately, Amin stopped and waited for his neighbour. Since his neighbour was asking for the old story books, Amin unhesitatedly gave the books to him. Abdul thanked Amin and he was so grateful. He then brought the books home.
At home, Abdul sat in the living room and read the books. Abdul's father was happy to see his son reading books. He was indeed proud of Abdul.
