  16. 16. A terrible morning Describe the woman. What happened when she was on her way to work? How did she respond? What happened later?
  17. 17. I imagined a woman, she’s actually a teacher. She’s got brown curly hair and she wears glasses. And today when she’s going off to work she’s wearing jeans and a purple jumper and comfy boots. And she lives up in Scotland and at the moment it’s really icy and wintry so when she was on her way to work she was driving really carefully but then there had been an accident and so she couldn’t take the normal roads and so she had to go along the back roads and she actually got a little bit lost because her GPS wasn’t working because she had no signal. So she decided to pull over and see if she could find her way and when she pulled over, she saw a farmer and so she got out her car and ran over and asked him which direction she needed to go and he offered to give her a ride in his tractor because it was really dangerous and that he would take her back to her car afterwards. And so when he picked her up after school and took her back to her car, she was really grateful and they hit it off.
  18. 18. A terrible morning Jasmine is a teacher with brown, curly hair who lives in the north of Scotland. It’s really cold and icy there and one day, when Jasmine was driving to work, there had been an accident so she had to go a different way. Unfortunately, she got lost because her GPS wasn’t working. She decided to stop to ask for directions. She saw a farmer and he offered to give her a ride because it was really dangerous. Later, when he met her after school, she took his phone number and then they went for a coffee. A terrible morning with a happy ending!
