I thought oh, I have a geography class at 6 pm. It’s far away from Tous Les Jours cafe. So I replied immediately, “I got it. But I have a class at 6:00 pm. I can get there earlier so that I can leave earlier because my school is far away from Tous Les Jours cafe.”
Then our teacher, Mrs Xu replied, “Well, you can come here at 3:20, so that then you can leave when you finish your task.”
When I hurried there, i arrived at 3:30pm. I started doing my work, took photos and then delivered the photos I had taken. Then I noticed that Steven still hadn’t turned up. At that moment, my teacher’s mobile phone was ringing. I thought it might be Steven. It was Steven! He said, “Hi, is that teacher? This is Steven. I’m lost. I forget the name of that bus station in front of Tous Les Jours cafe?” Then our teacher explained quite clearly how to take the bus and where to change it.
10 minutes later, he appeared. We all started to tease him. We often met at this cafe but he could never remember the bus stop name…
Well. It’s time to do more interviewing. Steven and I decided to go to the shopping mall, because we thought it was really convenient and cool. Unluckily, we still could not find a person who would agree to an interview. So we wanted to go outside where there were more people. But right as we got on the elevator we found two girls who looked like college students. We made our mind to try again so we asked, “Excuse me. We are from What Kids Can Do and Adobe. Can we ask you some questions about the Olympics? It won’t be very long.” After looking our credentials they agreed.
The interview was relaxedness and funny. Right at that moment, a staff of the shopping mall came close to us…
“Excuse me, can you let me know what are you doing? Are you interviewing?”
He asked. “Yes, we are asking some questions about the Olympics. If you want, we can interview you too.” “No. I mean… can you come to our manager’s office? We are told to pay more attention to the interviewers, you know. ” “Well, I know.” Steven followed him, I finished my interview then went to the office in a hurry.
“You know, here is close to the Olympic stadium. So we must pay attention to the interviewings.”
The manager said. “So, can I know the questions?”
“Of course. We showed them our question list of interviewing” They made a copy which took them a long time. Let me say, it should be about 20 minutes, I think. During that time, we called our teacher and told her details. She asked if she needed to talk to the maneger, we said: “it is fine here. Do not need her to be here. We will be back soon.”
20 minutes later we were back to the cafe.
“Oh my!” I looked my watch. It was 5:00pm. There’s no time to rest. I must go. Fortunately, teacher and other students could go with me.
First, we took a taxi. And we hurried to the line 5. It was 5:15pm. Then at the transfer station we took line10—a new subway line. It was 5:35. Finally, I took a taxi. when I got there , it was 5:55pm.
It was a hurried day that so many things happened. But it was more exciting, isn’t it?
