|My friend Kate was a pretty girl whose sweet voice
drew others' attentions. Last year, she left to study at a music
school. Yesterday she called to say that she wants to see me but
not at my house. So we fixed a time and a place and then hung.
Today I met her at a given time and place. Greatly
to my surprise, I found her so much changing. She
looked very sorrowful and worrying. She said she had made
such little progress that she was almost hopeless of success.
She wondered that whether she had been wasting her
time doing nothing. I knew he just needed some encouragement.
So I did what I could persuade her to gain her courage again.
