        The Good Fairy is going to visit Geppetto for Pinocchio’s birthday. She phones

        Geppetto to see if they can meet.



Geppeto                : Hello, Geppetto’s apeaking.

The Good Fairy    : Hello, Geppetto, this is The Good Fairy fromFunIsland. How

are you doing at the puppet school?

Geppeto                : The Good Fairy! How nice to hear from you. I’m fine, thanks,

And you how are you?

The Good Fairy    : Good. Look, I’m coming over in April for Pinocchio’s birthday. Are

you going to prepare a special party for him?

Geppeto                : Well, I don’t think I can afford to give him a party, but there will be a                 small dinner with his friends.

The Good Fairy     : That will do. I’m sure he’ll be happy.

Geppeto                 : By the way, I hope you can come and meet me soon to arrange the    party.

The Good Fairy      : Sure. Uhm, the party will be on April 23rd at 7. p.m., so, can we   have kind of meeting at the “Super” café at 12.30 on April 22nd?

Geppeto                 : Just a minute. I’ll check my diary. No, I ‘m afraid that’s not good for  me. Why don’t we meet on April 21st, before lunch at the “Super  Mall”? It’s a small dinner but there will probably be a lot of things to  buy. That’s why I prefer one stop shopping. What do you say?

The Good Fairy     : Yes, that’s possible. You mean we’ll have lunch together before


Geppeto                 : Right.

The Good Fairy     : Good idea. OK, let’s say at 11.00 on April 21st, at the “Super Mall”.                                 If you get delayed, you can always call me.

Geppeto                 : All right. See you there. Thanks for phoning. Bye.

The Good Fairy     : Bye.

Tuti              : Would you like a cup of tea, Mrs. Shelley?

Mrs. Shelley : Yes, please. Thank you. Hmm…This tea tastes good and smells fragrant

Tuti              : Thank you. I’m glad you like it.

Mrs. Shelley : Tell me, how do Indonesians prepare a cup of tea?

Tuti               : Well, first fill in the kettle with some water from the tap. Then, place it     on the stove and wait until the water is boiling.

Mrs. Shelley : What do you do then?

Tuti               : Next, put one or two teaspoonfuls of tea leaves into a teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. To obtain the best flavor, the tea should soak for three to five minutes before being served.

Mrs. Shelley : Hmmm…Then, what do you do?

Tuti               : Finally, pour the tea into cups and don’t forget to add some sugar in it. Stir     it. The tea is ready to be served. Unlike inEngland, Mrs. Shelley, we don’t take milk in our tea.

Hello … Yustita!



(Lucy’s voice surprised me. Why? She never comes so early like this morning. She usually comes a few minutes before the bell rings.)

Hi! What is wrong? You don’t look yourself today. Why did you come so early today?



My father gave me a lift. By the way, have you heard anything about Elsa?



What is the matter with her?



Haven’t you heard? Everyone at school has.



What is it? Would you tell me, please?



OK. She is falling in love with Iwan. Don’t you know? She is your classmate, isn’t she?



You are kidding! I can’t believe it is true. As far as I know, she is a calm girl. But… how about Iwan’s response?



”Wow …. I don’t know. Please ask yourself. Iwan and you belong to the same volleyball club, don’t you? But I think he pays no special attention to her. Since …. he loves

somebody else.



Who is she?



Well….you’d better ask him yourself. The bell will be ringing soon.



(Lucy is not my classmate. She is in the IPA (science) department while I am in the language department. The break finally ended. One by one, my friends entered the classroom. It was very noisy in the classroom. The teacher was absent and there was no special assignment.)



Tita …. Are you going to play volleyball this afternoon?



Yes, what can I do for you?



I want to give this letter to Iwan. Will you help me give it to him?



Yes I will. Believe me. I am as good as Mr. Postman.




Thanks a lot for your help.



No problem.

(In the afternoon, I met Iwan in the volleyball court. He was smiling when I approached him)

Iwan ….



Yes? What’s wrong?



Here is a letter for you.



Who is it from?



Please read it yourself.



Well, is it from your close friend?




(Iwan was smiling when he looked at me. I was a bit annoyed by his smile. A week had passed when Elsa came to me and asked about her letter.)



How about the letter? I wondered why he hasn’t answered it yet.


I’m afraid I don’t know. I haven’t met him for a week. But I promise that I will ask about it as soon as I meet him.



Don’t forget it, Tita.



(One evening Iwan dropped by my house to return a book which he borrowed a few days before.)

Iwan, have you answered Elsa’s letter I gave you a few days ago?



Sorry, … I have had no time to write it. I’d rather say …. I don’t love her, but I do love someone else.


May I know who?



Well, you will know everything soon. Sorry, …. I must be off now. Give my best regards to your parents. See you tomorrow.



Yes, I will. See you.

(When I was studying that evening, I found a letter in the book which Iwan returned. I was really surprised when I read it ….



Dear Yustita Indriani,

Thanks a lot of your kindness. But I am very sorry to let you know that I do not love your friend.

If you really want to know the girl who I like best, her name is YUSTITA INDRIANI, the one who is reading this letter now.

Yes, Tita, I do love you. I have wanted to say it to you directly, but you never gave me a chance to do so.

Well, I’m waiting for your answer, dear.


With love,

Iwan Pradita



(Oh, my God! What must I do? Do I like him? Maybe, but how about Elsa? She is my classmate and my good friend. It hurts to know this. Oh, no…. I will not do it. And tomorrow I will tell him. I must find time to say it.

Iwan….I don’t mean to hurt you. I can’t love you. Please don’t hate me. Let’s be friends till the end of time, but don’t love me.I can’t do that, you know. Oh God, help me explain it to him. I really don’t know what I will do if I meet Elsa tomorrow.)













Anisa            : Wow! That’s a lovely dress, Dinahyu. Is it new?

Dinahyu       : Yes, it is. Thank you.

Anisa            : The color and the model really look nice on you.

Dinahyu       :  Oh, do you really think so?  I am really fond of this dress.

Anisa            :  Did you make it yourself?

Dinahyu       :  Certainly not, Anis. My aunt gave it to me as a birthday gift.

Anisa            :  Did she? What a good aunt you have!
