Mr. Gardener, will you bring your fiancée to the talent show?
Of course! She’s looking forward to it.
You’re engaged? Congratulations!
Thanks. We’ll get married this month. Laura wants a June wedding.
A June bride. How lovely! Is she a teacher too?
Yes. She teaches science at the high school.
My sister is her student.
We have to do many things for our wedding. We are busy but we will not miss the talent show!
Hi, Anna. Did you learn the dance move?
Yes, I can do it now.
What are you talking about?
We will dance for Mr. Gardener and his fiancée at the talent show.
Everyone will dance. Can you join us?
I’m not a very good dancer.
That’s okay. You don’t have to do it well.
All right. Count me in.
That’s good. Don’t tell Mr. Gardener. It’s a surprise for him.
I will be in a performance in the talent show.
What will you do?
I will dance! We practice after school.
That sounds fun. By the way, summer vacation starts after the talent show. It’s very long.
I know! Isn’t that great? I don’t have homework. I will do many things with my friends.
You don’t have homework, but I will take you to the library. American children read many novels in summer. Jessica said so.
Oh, I’m tired and thirsty.
There is a shop in the park. Let’s buy a drink.
There are benches next to the shop. We can rest there.
Are you ready for the talent show, Miki?
Yes, but I’m nervous.
Nervous? I don’t believe that! You are a baseball sta.
Baseball and dancing are different.
Don’t worry. You’ll do well.
I can’t wait for the talent show. Lewis is going to play the saxophone.
Hello! Are you going for a walk now?
Yes. We’ll go to the river.
There are many wildflowers. They are blooming now.
How do you walk to the river?
There is a path behind that house. There aren’t many people on the path. It’s very peaceful.
Please come to my house after your walk. I made a carrot cake. I used carrots from your garden.
Thanks! We’ll bring some wildflowers for you.
What are your plans for summer?
I will go to summer school.
You want to study?
Yeah, I want to learn more about computer programming, Lewis will take a music history class.
I went to summer camp last year with David. It was terrible. id what was terrible about it?
You scared me with bugs.
Oh, sorry. This year Miki is going to the same camp. She likes nature. She even likes bugs.
Excuse me. Aren’t you Lewis’s father?
Yes. How did you know?
My daughter goes to school with him. We went to your concert in Central Park. Your performance was great.
Lewis’s performance was wonderful today. Does he plan to be a professional musician too?
Yes. As a baby, he didn’t play with toys. He loved my saxophone. He always liked to hear it.
I think he has his father’s talent.
Look at the big audience. Isn’t it exciting, Miki?
Yes, but I feel afraid. I never danced in front many people.
You’ll be fine.
Aren’t you nervous, Lewis?
I’m always nervous before a performance. I close my eyes. I imagine everyone’s smiling faces. Then I can do it.
Think about Mr. Gardener. Our dance will surprise him. He’ll be happy.
I’ll try. I’ll close my eyes … one… two… three…. Okay. I can do it!
I can’t believe it! Everyone is dancing.
This is our wedding present for you.
This dance is for us?
Yes! We wanted to surprise you and Ms. Parker.
Come to the stage. There is another song.
This is really amazing. Everyone dances so well. To do this was hard work.
Come on, Adam. Let’s dance with your students!
I’ll take videos. I want to remember this forever!
Our surprise for Mr. Gardener was a big success. He looked happy to dance with us.
I was excited to be part of the performance.
David planned everything carefully. He worked hard on that. He got the okay from the teachers. He invited students to the dance.
You talk a lot about David. Do you like him?
Don’t be silly!
You are turning red.
No, I’m not! How about you, Miki? Do you like anyone?
Hi Miki. Do you want to hang out sometime?
Let me see. When?
How about next Saturday? There is a special event at the mall.
Oh, I’m sorry. I’m going to go to a baseball game with my family. We will see the Yankees.
Lucky you! Then how about on Monday or Tuesday?
Oh, I’m a little busy. Next month summer camp will start. Let’s just hang out together there.
Okay, sure. Well, see you then.
Hi, Miki. You’re up very early.
Yes. I woke up early to work in the garden. It’s not hot yet.
Everything looks very good. Oh, what’s this?
It’s a library book. I borrowed it to learn more about gardening.
Good idea. Anyway, I’m going to buy more seeds today. Do you want to come with me?
I’d love to. I want to see different kinds of tomato plants.
