【英語のショート・ストーリー】

“It was lunchtime and as I had time on my hands, I thought it was high time to meet up with an old school friend. I called Sam and asked if he had time to meet me for lunch and he said he would love to spend some time with me and that we should meet at 1pm.

We met at the cafe down the road and I was on time but he called me to say he was running behind time and would be 5 minutes late so I read a newspaper to kill some time. He’s late all the time so I was expecting to wait and in the meantime I enjoyed catching up on the latest news.

Time went by and he arrived a little later. We had a great time eating and drinking and soon it was evening. Time flies when you are having fun! Sam had to leave to be in time to catch his train.

‘See you next time’ I said as he left.”
