Danny is playing a computer game on his laptop. Tommy is sleeping.
Mike came back from a morning jogging.
M: hi, Dan, what are u doing?
D: I am playing war craft.
M: Where is Tommy?
M:What? What's the matter?
D: Don't u see? He is still sleeping.
M: My goodness! I can't believe this! It’s almost nine. He got to get up now. Don't u remember we are required to make up a three people dialogue for tomorrow's oral class?
D: Yes, I do. You wake up Tommy and I will play one more round of war craft.
M: You'd better stop playing right now. We don't have much time to prepare this dialogue. Tommy! Tommy! Wake up! Time to wake up!
T:five more minutes, please.
Mike: No way, Jose. Time really flies.We still have a lot to do. Hurry up.
T: (Tommy sits up in his bed) Can I lie down two more minutes, please, just two more minutes? when Danny finishes his game, I will be fine.(Yawns) I don't know why I am so so sleepy. (Tommy lies down again.)
M: Guys!!! I am really angry now. Time waits for nobody. If you two don't stop what you are doing now, I will find somebody else to be my partners.
D and T: all right. All right. We listen to u.
M: That's more like it. We need will power.
D and T: what is will power?
M: Will power is trying hard not to do something that you really want to do.
D: You mean like trying not to play war craft?
T: you mean like trying not to stay up late?
Danny turns off his computer. Tommy gets up and goes to the bathroom.
Two minutes later the three maskeetters are working on their assignment.
Danny: Mike, can I take a little break? Let me play one round and we will continue our work? Tommy: Mike, Can I lie down a minute? My back hurts.
Mike: No! No! No! Let's finish our work first before we do anything. We need will power!!! Danny and Tommy: that's true. We need will power! We listen to you
Xiao Ling is on her way to the dormitory. She drops a book and Yani and Songtao who happen to be right behind her, pick up the book and give it back to her.
Y: Excuse me, is this your book?
X: Thank you so much.
Y: You are welcome. Are you a new admit?
X: yes. I just came to register yesterday. My name is Xiao ling. Nice to meet you.
Y: My name is Yani. Nice to meet you, too. This is my friend since childhood, Songtao. S: hi! We both came from xxx.
X: really? I am from there too. We are all town fellows aren’t we?. It’s such a small world. Y: absolutely. We both majored in computer science. What’s yours?
X: accounting. I don’t really like it. But my parents said this school offers excellent accounting programs and it will be easier for me to get a job later on.
S: I picked my own major because I know what I want. I just like computers a lot. I would like to be a computer programmer in the future.
Y: Well, I don’t know wether I really like it or not. I just follow Songtao where he goes.
X: I feel bad for those students who make it to the top but had to quit school because of short of money.
S: My parents paid some of my tution and I said to myself that I want to be somebody. But no matter how much I do, I will never be able to repay parents for what they do for me.
X: yeah. I agree with you.
S: look. The boys are playing basketball now. I will join them. See you !
X: let’s keep in touch, ok?
Y: ok. Here is my cell phone number.
X: this is mine. I am so glad to meet you. Take care!
Y and S: bye!
