  5. 5. Story <ul><li>Once upon a time, there was a girl named Susana Di Subject. Susana was a university student. She studied English every Tuesday at the Inter American University of France. One day the professor called the English department to say that he had an emergency and did not come to class. Susana had to study for a test. She looked at the time and decided to use it to study, now that she did not have class. She went to the library and sat next to a boy named Vernon di Verb. Vernon was studying for his English test too. He was a timid boy. Vernon had always liked Susana but he was too scared to talk to her. Susana looked at Vernon and said, do you take classes with me? Vernon said he did, and asked her what was she doing? Susana responded, I am studying for tomorrow’s English test. Vernon said, me too, do you want to study together? Susana said yes, and they began studying for the test. </li></ul><ul><li>A month went by and Susana and Vernon decided that they wanted to become close friends. Susana asked Vernon to come to her house, because her parents wanted to meet him. Susana’s parents were rich, they were very careful with who Susana dated. Susana was a pretty and popular girl. They did not want a guy trying to take advantage of her daughter. When Susana’s parents saw Vernon, they asked him, where do you work at? He said, at the pharmacy, organizing and getting the merchandise out of the boxes. Susana looked at her parents and asked Vernon to go outside. Susana’s parents told her that they did not like Vernon and that she was too much for him. Vernon heard the conversation and left the house. His parents asked him, are you OK? He explained, what happened. </li></ul>3

Vernon was bothered by his parents comments. </li></ul><ul><li>Vernon and Susana liked each other. They did not agree with her parents and wanted to be together. They decided to come to an agreement . Their agreement was that when they wanted to be together, they had to make a signal that only they knew. The signal was, “ Sss ”. This signal was used when Susana was with her parents or when he was with his. Their agreement helped them a lot. Susana and Vernon had a strong relationship. </li></ul><ul><li>One day Susana’s parents asked her about Vernon, they spoke to her about what they had said. Susana listened. Her parents said they were very sorry about making the comment that “ she was too much for Vernon and that they did not like him”. Susana’s and Vernon’s parents met for dinner, each spoke about the situation that had happened and decided to end the argument. Susana Di Subject and Vernon Di Verb were happy that the argument was over and decided to announce their relationship. That day Vernon promised Susana that he would follow her everywhere she goes and Susana promised him that she would always be next to him. And every time you read or make a sentence you will see Susana Di Subject and Vernon Di Verb’s agreement. </li></ul><ul><li>THE END </li></ul>4
