Zach drove over to his fiancée's place. She was in China, visiting her parents. Her son Bradley hadn't gone with her. Bradley was a junior in high school. He neither liked nor disliked Zach, even though he had known Zach for three years. Zach was still trying to win Bradley over. He called Bradley to tell him that he was coming over. Bradley said okay. When Zach got there, he checked all of Christine's mail to see if there were any bills to pay. There were none.

He asked if Bradley wanted to drive Zach's car. Bradley had a driver's permit, and was always pestering his mom to let him drive her car. Bradley said all right. Zach told him not to speed, but he could drive anywhere he wanted. Bradley got on the 210 freeway and headed northwest to where it meets the 5. Zach gave Bradley a few driving tips: Don't drive next to big rigs, because you never know when they might tip over and crush you. Don't drive behind pickup trucks with loads, because you never know when something in the truck will get airborne and come flying through your windshield.

On their way back, Zach suggested that they stop at the driving range. He wanted to show Bradley how to play golf. Bradley wasn't enthusiastic. He preferred his video games. But Bradley soon discovered that golf was fun! He hit a large bucket of balls. Zach told him that he had a natural swing. The next day Bradley, for the first time ever, called Zach. He had a few blisters on his hands; Zach said that was normal. Then Bradley asked if Zach would come by next Saturday so they could take a drive and hit golf balls again. Zach said of course, with a happy feeling in his heart.

Chú không phải là cha tôi

Zach lái xe tới nhà hôn thê của mình. Cô ấy đang ở Trung Quốc thăm cha me mình. Con trai cô ấy là Bradley không đi cùng cô. Bradley là một học sinh lớp 11 trường trung học. Câu ta không thích lẫn thích Zach, mặc dù cậu ta đã biết Zach được ba năm rồi. Zach vẫn đang cố gắng để vượt qua cửa ải Bradley. Anh ta gọi cho Bradley để nói với cậu ta rằng mình đang đến. Bradley nói được thôi. Khi Zach tới nói, anh ta kiểm tra mọi thư từ của Christine để coi có hóa đơn nào cần trả tiền không. Không có cái nào hết.

Anh ta hỏi Bradley có muốn lái xe của anh không. Bradley đã có giấy phép lái xe, và luôn luôn đòi mẹ cậu cho cậu lái xe. Bradley nói được thôi. Zach nói cậu ta không được lái quá nhanh, nhưng cậu ta có thể lái tới bất kì nơi nào cậu muốn. Bradley tiến vào đường số 210 và thẳng hướng tây bắc để tới đường số 5. Zach chỉ cho Bradley vài mẹo vặt: Đừng lái xe kế bên những thiết bị lớn, bởi vì mình không biết là nó có thể lật ngược và đè bẹp mình. Đừng lái xe sau lưng những chiếc xe tải chở hàng có hàng hóa, bởi vì mình không bao giờ biết liệu có thứ gì đó trong thùng xe bay lên và lao vào kính chắn gió của mình hay không.

Trên đường trở về, Zach đề nghị là nên dừng cuộc lái xe lại. Anh ta muốn chỉ Bradley cách chơi golf. Bradley không nhiệt tình lắm. Cậu thích trò chơi điện tử của cậu hơn. Nhưng Bradley sớm nhận ra rằng chơi golf thiệt vui! Anh ta đánh một rổ lớn banh. Zach nói với cậu rằng cậu có một cú đánh tự nhiên. Ngày sau đó, lần đầu tiên, Bradley gọi cho Zach. Cậu bị vài vết phông da trên tay; Zach nói bình thường thôi. Rồi Bradley hỏi Zach có thể tới vào thứ bảy tuần sau không để họ có thể lái xe và chơi golf. Zach nói dĩ nhiên rồi, với một cảm giác hạnh phúc len lỏi trong tim.

When Zach got there, he checked all of Christine's mail to see if there were any bills to pay. There were none.

Zach lái xe đến nhà vị hôn thê của mình Cô sống ở Trung Quốc, Cô đến thăm cha mẹ của cô. Con trai Bradley không đi cùng với cô. Bradley còn nhỏ và đang học ở trường Trung học. Cậu không thích và cũng không ghét gì Zach, mặc dù cậu đã biết Zach ba năm nay, Zach cũng đang cố gắng để lấy lòng Bradley. Ông gọi điện cho Bradley và nói với cậu ta rằng ông sắp đến. Bradley nói dạ được. Khi Zach đến ông kiểm tra tất cả các thư điện tử của Christine’s để xem có hóa đơn nào chưa thanh toán không, không có cái nào cả.

He asked if Bradley wanted to drive Zach's car. Bradley had a driver's permit, and was always pestering his mom to let him drive her car. Bradley said all right. Zach told him not to speed, but he could drive anywhere he wanted. Bradley got on the 210 freeway and headed northwest to where it meets the 5.

Ông hỏi Bradley có muốn lái xe của ông không. Bradley đã có giấy phép lái xe, và luôn luôn nài nỉ xin mẹ để được lái chiếc xe của cô ấy. Bradley nói được tốt thôi. Zach nói với cậu ta là không nên chạy nhanh quá, nhưng cậu có thể lái xe bất cứ nơi nào mà cậu muốn. Bradley đã chạy đến đường cao tốc 210 và quay về hướng tây bắc và dừng ở đường số 5. Zach có vài lời khuyên với Bradley về lái xe: không nên lái xe gần các xe chở thiết bị quá tải trọng, bởi vì cậu chẳng bao giờ biết khi nào nó có thể lật và đè bẹp cậu. Đừng bao giờ chạy sau xe tải và xe có tải trọng nặng, bởi vì không bao giờ cậu biết được cái gì đó trong xe sẽ văng ra và bay vào kính chắn gió xe của Cậu

But Bradley soon discovered that golf was fun! He hit a large bucket of balls. Zach told him that he had a natural swing. The next day Bradley, for the first time ever, called Zach. He had a few blisters on his hands; Zach said that was normal. Then Bradley asked if Zach would come by next Saturday so they could take a drive and hit golf balls again. Zach said of course, with a happy feeling in his heart.

Trên đường trở về, Zach đề nghị chúng ta dừng lại ở bãi cỏ rộng nơi mọi người đang tập đánh gôn. Ông muốn dạy cho Bradley biết cách để chơi gôn. Bradley không nhiệt tình cho lắm. Cậu chỉ thích các trò chơi điện tử của mình thôi, Nhưng Bradley sớm phát hiện chơi gôn là niềm vui! Cậu ấy đánh được một xô lớn banh, Zach nói với cậu ta rằng cậu đánh banh rất tự nhiên, Ngày hôm sau, lần đầu tiên, từ nào đến giờ Bradley mới gọi cho Zach, Cậu có vài mụn nước trên tay của mình.

10.Were there any bills to pay? No

Fill in the blanks:

Zach drove over to his fiancée’s place. She was in China, visiting her parents. Her son Bradley hadn't gone with her. Bradley was a junior in high school. He neither liked nor disliked Zach, even though he had known Zach for three years. Zach was still trying to win Bradley over. He called Bradley to tell him that he was coming over. Bradley said okay. When Zach got there, he checked all of Christine’s mail to see if there were any bills to pay. There were none.

He asked if Bradley wanted to drive Zach's car. Bradley had a driver’s permit, and was always pestering his mom to let him drive her car. Bradley said all right. Zach told him not to speed, but he could drive anywhere he wanted. Bradley got on the 210 freeway and headed northwest to where it meets the 5. Zach gave Bradley a few driving tips: Don’t drive next to big rigs, because you never know when they might tip over and crush you. Don’t drive behind pickup trucks with loads, because you never know when something in the truck will get airborne and come flying through your windshield.

On their way back, Zach suggested that they stop at the driving range. He wanted to show Bradley how to play golf. Bradley wasn’t enthusiastic. He preferred his video games. But Bradley soon discovered that golf was fun! He hit a large bucket of balls. Zach told him that he had a natural swing. The next day Bradley, for the first time ever, called Zach. He had a few blisters on his hands; Zach said that was normal. Then Bradley asked if Zach would come by next Saturday so they could take a drive and hit golf balls again. Zach said of course, with a happy feeling in his heart.
