Suddenly I saw one person who looks like my friend. At first I just ignored her. A few seconds later, she called my name. I was very surprised to see her there. At first I was [unintelligible]. Soon, we realized each other and were so glad to meet again. We went to the bar for a casual drink. We talk about our life and school. I had a good chat- a good time. I had a good time. We still keep in touch each other.
