Forgetting Your Umbrella

Sometimes, the weather app says:

鈥淭oday will be sunny. No clouds.鈥澛

This morning, Hanna didn鈥檛 bring an umbrella. Hanna walked to work and it was sunny. While she worked, she saw clouds. She finished work in the afternoon.聽

鈥淭he clouds look very dark,鈥 Hanna thought.聽聽

Hanna walked for 20minutes to go home.聽

鈥淧lease don鈥檛 rain,鈥 she said quietly.

The rain started. It was very heavy. Hanna went into a kimbap snack bar to wait.聽

After 15 minutes, it was still raining.聽

鈥淵ou can take my umbrella, teacher.鈥

鈥淭hank you very much, sir鈥

Hanna walked to the shop and bought an umbrella.

The next day, she returned the shop owner鈥檚 umbrella.聽
